The Asia Pacific data centre industry is expected to attract nearly US$100 billion in investment over the next five years to develop more than 3.6GW of hosting capacity. Markets such as India, China, Japan, and South Korea alone are set to add billions of dollars in development, with Southeast Asia now also making headlines as new projects break ground and buildings are brought online on average almost every week.
This digital evolution revolution is also made of millions of kilometres of fibre being laid across countries, thousands of cell towers powering stronger connectivity, and a population of roughly 4.8 billion people, a large percentage of which is made of young individuals hungry for innovation.
Playing a role in this new phase for APAC is global hyperscale operator EdgeConnex. With regional headquarters based in Singapore, the company has data centre facilities and projects under development across the continent’s main metros from Beijing to Chennai and Jakarta and beyond.
Backed by a robust CAPEX budget, EdgeConnex is edging towards becoming the continent’s largest developer.
Talking to The Tech Capital through the state of the APAC market as well as the current ground operations in this video, hear from EdgeConnex’s Don MacNeil, Chief Revenue Officer, and Kelvin Fong, Managing Director, APAC Region.
