ASEAN data centers to grow by 40%

Reading Time: 1 minute

data center singaporeIT companies in ASEAN are planning to stock up data storage capacities in the region by up to 40 per cent until 2015 on the back of rapidly rising data traffic.

Mobile data, enterprise IT outsourcing, the emergence of cloud computing and the market entry of large-scale data center operators mainly from the US is changing the landscape extensively, said a report by UK-based IT consulting firm BroadGroup.

The report sees a polarising trend occurring between the large scale data centers owned mainly by overseas players and mainly deployed in Singapore in contrast to smaller and often older domestic data centers.

“Further change will take place over the next few years,” said Philip Low, managing director of BroadGroup.

“We see the new digital park in Singapore as significant, and also the possible entry of new market players. Overseas multinationals will seek either local outsourcing IT hub capabilities or the right combination of conditions — land, power, connectivity, governance etc. The opportunity is still open to exploit these requirements by Malaysia—a country with extensive land availability and untapped renewable energy resources.”

The report also highlights the rising importance of Indonesia that the forecast predicts will yield a substantial capacity increase in data storage of more than 84 per cent, albeit starting from a very low base. Thailand demonstrates growth, with disaster recovery and business continuity demand spurred by the 2011 floods.
