Bridging the APAC Gap for Global Businesses with Colocation Service ProvidersJuly 25, 2019
When it comes to the evolving business needs of the data center, Los Angeles is a hotbed of opportunity in relation to growing bilateral market potential of the Asia Pacific Market (APAC).
This is exemplified by the existing and planned major trans-pacific submarine cables between Southern California and APAC countries that make Los Angeles a prime hub for high-speed interconnection between the US and APAC markets.
Major colocation service providers are poised to take advantage of the increased data carrying capacity that results from major cloud services providers spearheading or joining consortiums to develop even more transcontinental cable runs. This is only natural since the cloud as we know it today is made globally possible by these undersea cables.
The simultaneous rise of infrastructure in and between Los Angeles and APAC countries fuels numerous opportunities for businesses on both sides of the Pacific with the help of data center services. When it comes to global connectivity of the data center, Los Angeles data center providers are meeting evolving Los Angeles digital business needs through high availability and connectivity routes between APAC and Los Angeles.
According to Cloudscene, the West Coast of the US is set to benefit from a surge in demand as APAC markets increasingly tap into US-based apps, web retailing and content delivery. This is true across China, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, and Vietnam markets among others.
There are clear signs that corporate and governmental agreements are helping to pave the way for businesses to take advantage of this boundless opportunity. For example the exploding mobile economy and cross-border ecommerce was a key topic in the annual China California Business Forum held recently in Los Angeles.
These discussions lay the groundwork for meeting the needs for bilateral growth between Asia and LA business markets. The burgeoning mobile commerce and content delivery needs of APAC countries put a spotlight on colocation service providers with broad and deep connections to global CDN providers.
This focus is enhanced by providers with deep connections to a host of global peering exchanges and countless APAC carriers, data centers and ISPs that are the foundation for that bilateral business and content exchange. The potential benefits only accrue with the projected 7-percent growth of data center construction across the region according to a ResearchAndMarkets report.
This data center growth works to the benefit of leading data center colocation services providers as well as businesses in Los Angeles and APAC countries by providing the potential for broader interconnectivity across the region. For leading data center colocation services providers with significant operations in both Los Angeles and APAC regions, the growth of data centers across Asia enhances their ability to serve business clients bilaterally through broader coverage and interconnectivity options. This creates a wellspring of opportunity for businesses of every size and type across LA and beyond that are focused on maximizing regional and global business opportunities.
