Asia is the largest market opportunity 


Jeffrey, VP Global Strategic Market Development at SpaceDC, suggested that Asia could be the largest market opportunity and  analyzed the features and advantages of Southeast Asia with the highest growth rate of data center demand. In 2019, the Global IDC market supply is USD 80 billion in total, and China is USD 20 billion, Southeast Asia Counntries have USD 30 billion. IDC market scale is closely related to the population. The population of Southeast Asia is around  650 million, which is the half of China. However, IDC market is USD 3 billion, which is 1/6 of China.  Therefore, there is a large space for the IDC market growth. Besides, Southeast Asia has a younger population. The average age of Singapore is 36 years old. The average age of other Southeast Asian countries is 26-28, and Vietnam is 23-24. The popularization of mobile terminals, such as mobile phones, online games, online shopping, and online business activities, has driven the big data demand. Especially after the epidemic, the data is increasing rapidly. The growth rate of Alibaba and Tou Tiao in the Philippines and Singapore has increased by 46% within one month, and in Thailand, Alibaba's e-commerce increased by 57%-58%. In addition, Singapore and Hong Kong have high-quality submarine cable services. Southeast Asia has attracted a large number of investment institutions, such as Google, Microsoft, and other large companies, ICP, etc.

Regarding the reasons why Space DC chose to build a data center in Indonesia, Jeffrey mentioned the demographic advantage and industry ecology. Alibaba has built a third cloud data center in Indonesia. AWS has also built three data centers in Indonesia, two of which have already been completed. The Google team has started to select land in Indonesia. Singapore's sovereign fund GIC has invested in Indonesia Gojek In addition, Jeffrey introduced SpaceDC's industrial park in Jakarta, which is 25 kilometers away from the airport, with convenient transportation, and a variety of energy supplies such as diesel generators and green energy. He also talked about Tier 3 configuration of the park. In terms of SpaceDC JAK1 and JAK2 data center, they already got the qualification certificates of the data center -  ISO,PCI,TVRA and OCP.  For natural disasters such as earthquakes and floods in Indonesia, Space DC's data center has designs to stand earthquakes. In addition to the deployment in Indonesia, Space DC has also begun to deploy in the Philippines and Manila.

JAK2 is the first state-of-the-art data center opened by SpaceDC in Jakarta and the first to obtain OCP Ready™ certification in Asia.
