Shasta Ho, CEO, Nextlink Technology believes his passion for running marathons that requires one to have high level of endurance and remain mission-oriented without fearing challenges reflects the culture of the company. His stance toward the philosophy of 3S—Simple, Speed, and Share in leading the organization helps efficiently address customers’ needs for the implementation of befitting software tools and services. Infusing the same conviction to handle pressure and challenges, Nextlink Technology helps customers leverage AWS as a cloud IaaS and PaaS platform. The Taiwan based cloud services expert, Nextlink is an AWS Advanced Consulting Partner, and Channel Reseller, offering the Proof-of-Concept (POC) program to accelerate customer’s AWS adoption without any upfront cost. “Nextlink also delivers value to customers by offering qualified technical and business benefits, proactive monitoring, automation, and management of customers’ environment,” says Ho.
Adhering to AWS’ high requirements and standard, Nextlink has conducted numerous successful POC programs. “Based on the statistics, the success rate of our POCs is above 70 percent in 2015. This implies that the partnership between Nextlink and AWS is becoming even closer,” says Ho. The company also specializes in providing services such as Business Management, Solution Design Capabilities, Infrastructure and Application Migration Design Capabilities, and Security. “We deliver reliable, scalable and tailored solutions to businesses of all sizes and kinds around the world,” says Ho. Additionally, the firm acknowledges the role of IoT in enhancing the capability of manufacturing products and offers Business Intelligence (BI) solutions to help explore and visualize customers’ data from AWS IoT service and derive quick insights. Furthermore, Nextlink provides customers with a more complete, one-stop Internet cloud hosting and other services that can be deployed in AWS system.

The services of Nextlink have highest penetration levels across industries like media, gaming, and enterprise cloud. Besides, the rapid localization of AWS services through Nextlink in Taiwan stand as a testament to the reach of the enterprise in driving its customers toward adoption of cloud. “Our organization helps Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) explore the market in Greater China region by proffering professional solutions and technical support,” says Ho.
Unlike its counterparts, Nextlink differentiates itself in the market with its unique capabilities in customization, integration, and management of clients’ cloud services. Once, CrazyMike, a Taiwan-based leading Online-to-Offline (O2O) company that provides web/APP online shopping platform to order food, clothing, and cosmetics was looking to adopt a cloud solution to manage traffic. The client also required the website backups for current production environment and real-time data analysis solution to analyze its consumer behaviors and transaction log for better, accurate marketing event planning. Nextlink helped CrazyMike to plan, optimize, and migrate from traditional data center to AWS within two months. Nextlink’s professional consulting service also led CrazyMike to focus more on its business and marketing without investing in expensive infrastructure while obtaining cost-efficiency.
With nearly a decade of experience in the enterprise cloud arena, Nextlink is planning to empower companies across China to seamlessly deploy the global cloud infrastructure and address their business needs. Nextlink is now focused on broadening its presence and establishing market foothold in Shenzhen and Shanghai. From the product perspective, the company is en route to explore Business Intelligence and IoT space. “We are in discussion to partner with leading BI vendor Splunk to provide complete cloud solution in the future,” concludes Ho.
