funding in an uncertain world

Funding is crucial to all businesses. This is especially relevant to start-ups and growing companies, not to mention that the latest economic condition creates a high level of uncertainty in the financing world. This talk will let you have a basic understanding of the fundraising process, the types of investors that you may deal with and what considerations should be given when choosing your investors, with an illustration of the typical commercial, tax and accounting issues that may arise in a fundraising exercise.

Cyberport Community Cloud is ready now!

Hong Kong Cyberport Management Company Limited (Cyberport) has announced the launch of the first-ever Community Cloud (Cyberport Cloud) in Hong Kong on Nov 4, 2013. The Cyberport Cloud is the first community cloud platform in Hong Kong, offering easy-to-use and self-provisioning Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) to all Cyberport tenants, Smart-Space users, incubatees, alumni and subscribers, allowing efficient operations and the ability to expand their business in a more agile, cost-effective and collaborative manner.

A Community Cloud is a collaborative Cloud where users from similar organisations and verticals sharing similar concerns - such as security and compliance – are able to share resources and therefore drive cost-efficiencies through jointly sharing the service.

Easy Integration and Collaboration: addressing shared concerns of the community

Cyberport Cloud enables its users to create a cloud platform that can easily be integrated with their internal network. With the use of SDN (software-defined network), Cyberport Cloud gives each tenant or user its own network topology and control over its traffic flow. Essentially, it will enable businesses to manage the traffic loads of their cloud platform in a flexible and more efficient manner so as to increase productivity. The cloud service helps ease overhead investment budget challenges and offers flexibility for business expansion especially for start-ups. It also manages a hybrid cloud efficiently through a single management platform of all cloud activities and usage for the Cyberport Cloud and other public clouds. For ICT companies demanding high availability, the Cyberport Cloud offers a load balancing service, which allows users to configure virtual and physical load balancers on demand so as to stay responsive to changing needs with high performance and reliability.

With high computing power provided by the 576 CPU cores, the first phase of the Cyberport Cloud is highly scalable and is capable of hosting over 300 resource-intensive applications. To ensure this powerful Cyberport Cloud is environmentally-friendly, a real-time power efficiency monitoring system has been implemented.
