Zoho expands Australian presence

Business technology specialist Zoho Corporation has enhanced its Australian presence by establishing a presence at Equinix’s International Business Exchange data centres in Sydney and Melbourne.

The company is investing $15 million to establish an Australian presence to cater to the needs of local customers and businesses.

This marks the opening of Zoho’s seventh regional cloud, joining others located in North America, Europe and Asia.

Zoho Chief Strategy Officer Vijay Sundaram said the Australian expansion will provide regional customers with reduced latency and improved access to Zoho’s suite of cloud business products, while allowing them to meet their regulatory and data sovereignty requirements.

“The new data centres further expand Zoho’s global ecosystem and are a commitment to meet the specific demands of our customers,” he said.

“By building all the supporting infrastructure right here in Australia with Equinix, we can deliver a high-performance and scalable cloud infrastructure that is served locally and is in tune with the needs of the local market.”

The expansion is in line with Zoho’s competitive strategy involving locating and storing customer data locally within each major market.

The company has an extensive SME customer base in Australia and New Zealand, which collectively represents Zoho’s fourth largest regional market.
