The Allure of Singapore, the World’s Second Gateway to China

Singapore is one of Southeast Asia’s more mature data center markets, Jabez Tan, senior analyst at Structure Research, says. Telcos dominate data center markets in other parts of the region, while Singapore has a good mix of both telcos and data center specialists.

The primary reason the small island nation has such an active data center market is that it has become an Internet gateway between China and the rest of the world, Tan explains. Now on its way to reaching a gateway status that’s on par with Hong Kong, Singapore is where international companies go to serve customers in China, and where Chinese companies go to serve customers in Europe or North America.
