Earlier today, at our annual Teaching and Learning Conference Asia, we announced the opening of a new data centre in Singapore.

The new facility is in addition to those already existing in Germany, the Netherlands, the United States, Australia and Canada, and responds to growing customer requests for an in-region, private cloud service to host and manage their learning environments.

Key benefits for clients? Cost reduction, faster speeds, and 24x7x365 access to technical expertise to manage installations, upgrades, and day-to-day system maintenance. Moreover, the Managed Hosting deployment model lower the workload on institutional staff, who can now devote more time and attention to improving and growing learning programmes.

Blackboard powers over 130 leading schools and universities in Asia, including leading institutions in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Taiwan, South Korea and Japan. With several offices across the region and a team of specialists in educational services, product development and sales, we are further investing to support local institutions and help students achieve their educational goals.

This new data centre helps solidify our growing global presence and underscores our commitment to this critical region. It also testifies the ever growing relevance of Asia in the education industry.

Today’s announcement is a part of our expanded cloud strategy that offers customers the most comprehensive set of deployment options in the market today: locally on-site, through Managed Hosting offering, or a SaaS/public cloud option.
