The South Asian region is witnessing a huge surge in data consumption as internet, smart devices, social media, OTT platforms and technologies like cloud and IoT, have become an ubiquitous part of our lives.
With over 650 million Internet users, India takes up a leading position compared to growing economies like Bangladesh, SriLanka, Nepal and Bhutan making it a lucrative destination for data center and cloud investments.
Increased digitalization, smart cities initiatives, digital inclusion efforts and push for data localisation by the Government has encouraged both local and international colocation and cloud players to also explore the untapped countries within the South Asian region.
Despite these developments, every country within South Asia has to deal with regional issues around connectivity, capacity, scalability and cyber security.
Join W. Media team at South Asia’s Data center and Cloud Summit where experts deep dive into emerging market trends, data center and cloud technologies, opportunities and regional challenges specific to South Asia.
