As one of the most developed data center and cloud computing markets in Asia, Hong Kong is very likely to witness the growth of data center investment. The region has also witnessed the deployment of 5G technology, which may increase the number of interconnected devices in China. Mainland China’s demand for cross-border overseas business is also stimulating the growth of cloud computing service industries such as Hong Kong cloud servers. Hong Kong companies have a high level of service awareness and are more willing to adopt the latest industry trends, such as virtualization and cloud computing. Virtualization has become the key to data center consolidation, which can compress more virtual machines into physical servers and significantly increase server utilization.
Will the Hong Kong market have a breakthrough development in the post-epidemic period?
