The outbreak of Covid-19 saw an acceleration of digital transformation. In turn, this highlighted the invaluable role of data centres as the central nervous system of the digital economy. As the global pandemic continues to surge, economies around the world have become dependent on digital technology for every facet of daily life.
Asia Pacific is set to be the biggest market for data centres by 2021, with a total market size to be around US$28 billion by 2024 for colocation data centres. Southeast Asia (SEA) is one of the fastest growing regions globally and will be a key driver of the APAC’s data centre market, representing around 13% of the region’s total market size. With rapid digitalisation and the surge in demand for cloud-based services across the region, Southeast Asia is set to be the fastest growing region for the colocation of data centres over the next five years. Yet, the industry has among the highest carbon footprints in the business world today.
The question is, how can we decarbonise data centres while building better cloud solutions?
In this exclusive white paper, The Future of Data Centres in the Face of Climate Change, explore the viable solutions available to help data centre operators fight the rising tide of environmental challenges, and discover whether the future of data centres can ever really be green.
