Hong Kong is top data centre location in APAC

IDCHong Kong is the top location in Asia Pacific when it comes to suitability for setting up new and outsourced data centres, according to IDC’s Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) Data Center Index study.

Singapore and Taiwan are the next favourites based on factors such as energy costs and bandwidth availability.

“Choosing a strategically correct location has become increasingly important for organisations to serve their customers across countries. Hence, the scrutinizing process has to be done very thoroughly and carefully,” said Simon Piff, Associate Vice President of Infrastructure Research at IDC Asia Pacific.

He added that most countries in Asia are lucrative markets to set up and grow businesses, barring a few which have political and technological environments as deterrent factors.
