Competition is mounting across the region, as mainstays are accompanied by a long list of telcos and tech giants like DITO and FPT Telecom, Google, AWS, Huawei, Microsoft and Alibaba in the Asia Pacific data center scene.

This makes for an overwhelming amount choice when selecting the best data center for your needs. You probably have many questions, which we will answer during this Power Talk:
– Should I choose a data center that’s closer or further away?
– Is it suitably connected to allow my business to grow into more countries?
– Will it keep my data safe?
– How will it be reliably powered?
– And what about sustainability?

Not only this, but you will need to consider the type of data center for your business. Organisations are continually announcing new data center constructions in Southeast Asia, including hyperscales, public and private cloud, colocation data centers, enterprise facilities, edge locations and more.

With more choice in the type of data centers available in the future, you may even consider migrating to a new operating environment to increase connectivity, enable growth or save costs. 

But with change comes challenges. 

Moving IT systems and workloads will likely impact your business operations, bringing you back to the same questions you may have had starting out. On top of that, you will need to ask ‘how will I plan and manage my migration?’ and ‘what can I do to avoid the common pitfalls that could damage my business’?

If you have asked any of these questions, then you’ve come to the right place. Join our industry experts and more than 150 fellow decision makers on Thursday 23 July to get the answers.

Spaces are limited, so register now for Data Center Selection & Migration in Asia Pacific.
