Data Centre & Cloud

DATA CENTRE & CLOUD

Malaysia's Data Centre & Cloud industry is marked by broad trends of expansion, efficiency, and consolidation. Rising above comparisons like China, Indonesia, and India, Malaysia holds the advantage in attracting potential clients and investors thanks to a climate of politcal stability, location that is free from natural disasters, and competitive real estate market. With a year-over-year growth of over 20% in the last five years in Malaysia, the field of digital data management has never been more ripe for the picking.

The main strategy for the proliferation of data centre and cloud is to cement Malaysia's position as the epicentre for technology-driven delivery of digital content and services in the region, with centres spanning 5 million sq ft by 2020. MDEC works to position Malaysia as a regional hub for data centre and cloud services by leveraging on various factors such as cost efficiency, availability of skilled workers, and a strong foundation of data governance laws.

Local data cloud players are strengthened through MDEC's initiatives by priming their high-value services to be regionally competitive. This is done by facilitating the growth of data centre parks in strategic locations through world-class physical and soft infrastructure. 

International businesses also stand to gain from MDEC's FDI policy as it offers an attractive portfolio of incentives for Cloud/Internet Giants to invest and set up facilities in Malaysia.
