Singapore Cloud & Datacenter Show Returns this July 2021
The rise of Singapore in the Cloud Computing, and Datacenter sphere is remarkable, and startlingly impressive for a nation with limited space. Its position as a mature datacenter hub both lends it industry credibility, but at the same time motivates regional counterparts to emerge as market contenders. To that end, Indonesia, and Malaysia have emerged as the most formidable Cloud Computing and Datacenter competitors. Having led the industry in APAC for over a decade, the market is pivoting towards efficiency and sustainability. Its reliable power grid, coupled with skilled personnel have proved to be overwhelmingly attractive against space scarcity concerns.
As new entrants establish their presence in Singapore, they’re pushed to adapt to the unique features of the market landscape. Singapore’s tight regulatory structure–fuelled by the design inefficiencies inherent to data center architecture–pushes providers to innovate sustainably. In the cloud computing sphere, though, Fintech is king, and the flexibility these cloud enterprises enjoy drives competition and ensures that only the very best stand out.
Will the Lion City continue to punch above its weight?
W. Media is gathering a whole suite of experts to share their local insights at our upcoming Singapore Cloud & Datacenter Convention 2021. This event will offer a comprehensive look at developments on both the technology and business sides of these industries–from regional database management to fintech to 5G adoption.
