Alibaba Group’s cloud computing arm Aliyun has announced plans to set up a new cloud data center in Singapore. Its headquarters for overseas business will also be based out of Singapore to drive Aliyun’s overseas expansion plan.

Scheduled for an early September launch, the Singapore facility will be the seventh globally in addition to existing centers in Beijing, Hangzhou, Qingdao, Shenzheng, Hong Kong and the U.S. It is also the second overseas data center to be opened this year by Aliyun after the launch of data center in Silicon Valley this March.

The new cloud data center leverages on Alibaba Group’s recent US$1 billion investment for cloud computing, and will enable more businesses to benefit from secure and reliable Aliyun-powered cloud services while riding on record foreign direct investment flows in Southeast Asia.
