Rich in tradition and profound ethical values, the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region has long dominated the energy landscape for having the world’s largest oil reserves. And Now, MENA is grabbing headlines for carving a space for itself in the realm of data centers.
The Middle East is the new found love of the e-commerce giants like Alibaba and PwC! How come? They have gone on a shopping spree and have already splurged billions of dollars in erecting state-of-the-art infrastructure in this Region. For they have concrete data to substantiate their confidence in the Middle East! Irrefutably, MENA is destined to be the next global leader in providing cloud technology.
Data’s Burj Khalifa
This region is not just blessed with abundance of natural resources but far-sightedness of its visionaries. Because they were successful in gauging the international market sentiment – tech is the next most valuable resource after oil. Now, this shall explain why MENA’s data center market is expected to blossom into a $ US 12.19 billion colossal success by the end of the year 2027.
All thanks to ingenious entrepreneurs like you who have ramped up investments in the field of 5G network connectivity, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in the last one decade itself. And evidently, it is in a perfect sync with the contours defined by the digital transformation strategy of the middle east. As a result, there is an exponential rise in data consumption which has later translated into the dire need to expand existing network bandwidth capacity. and it was a smooth transition – possible only because of astounding regional policies rolled out by the government in power.
Green Data Centers without a doubt, the new age entrepreneurs are pro-environment and are genuine nature empaths. That is why, they are striving hard to reduce their carbon footprint by opting for Cleaners Technologies. Take the case of Crusoe Energy that has made going green cooler than ever! For decades, conservationists loathed the idea of data centers because they emitted a great deal of greenhouse gasses. And these hazardous emissions are the root cause of this lethal acceleration of global warming.
It is a moment of sheer Joy! This year’s biggest carnival awaits your presence! It is only humane to give due credit to the widespread industry trends that are fueling the growth of data centers in the middle east. For instance, investing big time in smart city initiatives.
