About this talk

More than 20% of MNCs we surveyed currently have plans to expand into the SE Asia region, and are now considering their options to use third-party colocation/cloud exclusively, or in combination with on-premise IT deployments. Much of the current market activity is being driven by MNCs needing to build out their DC presence to serve as gateways to and from mainland China, and other high-growth markets in the region. Over a third of MNCs plan to increase their usage of colocation providers for their future IT deployments and are actively considering data center locations in established preferred locations of Singapore, Hong Kong or Tokyo - driven by factors such as regulations, geographical location, and the skills of the local workforce. So what are the key selection criteria, and how do certain locations compare? Singapore continues to be poised for solid growth, with an active supply pipeline, demand from local and international companies, and high-quality facilities. But do other factors, such as power supply costs, choice of bandwidth or the availability of carrier neutral space make it as an attractive location for datacenter investment as Hong Kong or Tokyo? Should MNCs look at Malaysia or Indonesia as possible areas for expansion as well, which could potentially offer lower-cost options for firms, as well as a way to target the local market in each country? This session will answer all the key questions such as: •Do Multinationals prefer to Own or Rent Datacenters in South-East Asia? •Why Do Organizations Need More Datacenter Space? •When Will They Need More Datacenter Space? •How Much Datacenter Space Will They Need? •What is Driving Datacenter Location Selection? •What Would Organizations Likely Do if They Needed More Datacenter Space/Power Capacity in SE Asia?
