Southeast Asia continues to be a high growth market and to capitalize on this growth enterprises are going to need data centers optimized for the new wave of open infrastructure. This week I chat with Darren Hawkins, Founder and CEO of SpaceDC, as he shares his view on the data center market in Southeast Asia. SpaceDC is the first data center to establish a partnership with Singapore’s sovereign wealth fund (GIC) and the first facility to receive OCP Ready™ recognition in the region for their new data center in Jakarta, Indonesia. View SpaceDC's OCP Ready™ Facility on the OCP Marketplace here.
