Korea Based NHN Cloud Signs Strategic Partnership To Drive Edge & Cloud Innovation


NHN Cloud, a division of the South Korean technology and gaming behemoth NHN Group, and Gcore, a provider of high-performance, low-latency, international cloud and edge solutions, jointly announce a strategic alliance. NHN Cloud is a leading supplier of public and private cloud services in South Korea and throughout Asia Pacific. 

As per the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), Gcore will gain access to the Asia Pacific market through the NHN Cloud by making its cutting-edge cloud services, such as CDN (Content Delivery Network), 5G eSIM, and accelerated AI processing, available to businesses there. In exchange, Gcore will serve as NHN Cloud's strategic partner in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa and act as a gateway for customers in the Asia Pacific area.

The MOU also establishes a framework for the two businesses' cooperative development of innovative solutions and cooperation on business projects.

Hangame, a South Korean online gaming portal with over 37 million players, NHN Payco, a payment gateway and digital wallet service, and FashionGo, an online marketplace, are just a few of the internet businesses that NHN Cloud manages.

The most potent and comprehensive edge and cloud services in Europe are being developed by Gcore for almost ten years. More than 11,000 peering partners and 140 points of presence across the globe make up Gcore's infrastructure at this time.

Donghooom Kim, CEO at NHN Cloud, commented: "Gcore's strength in EMEA is a significant benefit for us as we look to support the expansion of our customers across the region. Gcore has a shared desire to drive innovation in the areas of edge and cloud computing, and we are confident that together we can create compelling new propositions that will unlock even more value for our customers."

Andre Reitenbach, CEO at Gcore, said: "We at Gcore are immensely proud to embark on this partnership with NHN Cloud, one of Asia Pacific's outstanding technology innovators. Both businesses sharpened their expertise in delivering compelling gaming experiences built on high-performance, low-latency technology infrastructure, and have extended that know-how to businesses across the globe."
