Data Centres and Internet of Things (IoT) in Australia, 2018 - Australia’s Data Centre Market Attracting Significant New Overseas Entrants - ResearchAndMarkets.com

September 24, 2018
The “Australia - Data Centres and Internet of Things (IoT)” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering. It took over 20 years for the data centre market to reach its current position. The arrival of cloud computing, Big Data, M2M and IoT allowed for a large range of new services and applications, especially aimed at small and medium organisations. The data centre market includes telehousing facilities, co-location facilities, cloud and IT services, content hosting, connectivity and interconnection. They are important for a range of business and government applications including new developments of cloud computing and the Internet of Things (M2M). Currently the developments are highly centralised in the capital cities, but a more decentralised trend is expected to develop over time. Sydney datacentres currently offer the primary location for hubbing traffic for content and cloud providers, as well as content delivery networks. On an Asian regional basis, Sydney by 2018 was one of the four core hubs for the four biggest content providers - Netflix, Google, Facebook and Apple, along with Hong Kong, Singapore and Tokyo.
