South Korea has some of the fastest local Internet speeds in the world and with almost 90% of the population having access, and also known as the global leading country with a prosperous digital future with its great IT infrastructure and its continuous innovations in 5G, IoT, AI, etc.

Recently, South Korea is seeing a sharp increase in data center investments from global tech giants and data center providers, with even more expected from the mounting requirements brought by the demand for cloud services and mobile technology. 

South Korea is regarded as one of the top five leading data center revenue generators for APAC, which along with the other top generators, will deliver 32 billion dollars in revenue by 2023. Moreover, the size of the Korean cloud service market is also expected to exceed 3 trillion won in 2021 after exceeding $16.5 billion last year.

However, with the rapid growth of the data center and cloud market in Korea, there is a necessity to consider how we should respond to the above changes from 2020 to 2025.

-Will the prospects of domestic data centers and clouds continue to remain bright until 2025? 

-What are the problems that we are facing in adopting domestic data centers and clouds? 

-And how should we solve this challenge in a political/technical/business way?

If you’re looking for the answers pertaining to the questions, why don’t you join the session with IT industry experts and explore the data centers and cloud market in Korea on Thursday, November 11, 2020?

한국은 인구의 90%가 인터넷에 접속되어 있으며 세계에서 가장 빠른 국내 인터넷 속도와 함께, 훌륭한 IT 인프라를 바탕으로 5G, IoT, AI 분야의 지속적인 기술 발전 등, 최신 디지털 혁신을 주도하는 선도국으로 알려져 있습니다.

이에 따라 한국은 데이터 센터 및 클라우드 서비스에 대한 급격한 수요 증가로 인해 다국적 기업 및 국내 데이터 센터 제공 업체에 의한 데이터센터의 산업이 현저한 상승세에 있습니다. 

한 조사에 따르면, 한국은 아태지역 데이터 센터 시장의 5대 매출 시장 중의 하나이며, 이 5개국은 2023년까지 아태 지역의 매출 총액, 320억 US달러의 80%를 차지할 것이라고 발표하였습니다. 또한, 국내 클라우드 서비스 시장의 규모도 작년에 165 억 달러를 초과 한 후, 2021년에는 한화 3 조 원을 초과 할 것으로 예상됩니다.

하지만 위와 같은 국내의 급격한 데이터 센터와 클라우드 시장의 발전에 따라, 2020년 현재에 서있는 우리가 앞으로 2025년까지 어떻게 위와 같은 변화에 대응해 나가야 하는지 아래의 질문과 함께 고찰할 필요성이 있습니다.

-앞으로의 국내의 데이터센터와 클라우드 전망은 계속 밝을 것 인가?

-현재 국내의 데이터 센터와 클라우드 도입에 있어서 겪고 있는 문제점은 무엇인가?

-그리고 우리는 어떻게 이것을 정책적/ 기술적/ 산업적 관점에서 해결해 나갈 수 있는가?

만약 여러분들이 위의 질문들의 답을 찾고 계신다면, 2020년 11월 11일 목요일, 데이터센터 및 클라우드 서비스의 업계 전문가들과 함께 한국의 데이터 센터와 클라우드의 시장을 탐구하면서, 여러분의 궁금증을 해결하는 것은 어떤가요?
