AfterShip has received lots of helping hands since winning the 2011 Global Startup Battle. Being an SaaS app for tracking packages, we have to handle a large volume of shipments and send out thousands of notifications on time – cloud technology is the solution. We luckily received sponsorship for the cloud services by Fengqi.Asia, a Joyent-powered cloud infrastructure in Hong Kong and China, since we launched our open beta.
While Fengqi.Asia provides services to big clients like Linkedin or Kabam, they have been very active in the Hong Kong startup scene and give advices and supports to newbies like us. One point to note – they have 7+ year experiences providing public cloud services without blackout!
Fengqi.Asia’s datacenters are armed with networks guaranteeing the lowest latency to both China and overseas countries, but most importantly, it provides great local 24/7 support - which saves us the time zone difference and this is really helpful to us who are new to cloud technology. Otherwise, we won’t be able to send out over 50,000 notifications in such a short amount of time.
For any Hong Kong startups (SaaS app, mobile app or online games) who want to learn more about cloud technology, we strongly recommend you to talk to Fengqi.Asia. Drop us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can do referral for you.
