DataCentrePricing.Com (DCP) has launched the first edition of the DCP Asia Pacific Data Centre Price Tracker – analysis of seven Asia Pacific Country Markets - which provides a unique survey of the third party Data Centre Country Markets of Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, South Korea, Singapore and Thailand. The Asia Pacific Data Centre Price Tracker provides for each of the 7 Country Markets a breakdown of third party Data Centre space, power, pricing, key geographical clusters and new Data Centre developments.

 

The first edition of the Asia Pacific Data Centre Price Tracker highlights the significant differences in pricing and Data Centre development across the region. The largest Data Centre market in the 7 country survey is Japan (with 595,000 m2 of space) followed by Singapore (with 338,000 m2 of space) and Hong Kong in 3rd place (with 290,000 m2 of space).

 

Data Centre price levels also vary significantly across the region, with Indonesia having the lowest cost average rack space pricing (at USD $540 per month) and Hong Kong with an average rack space rate (at USD $976 per month). The highest average rack space rates in the region are found in Thailand (at USD $1,510 per month) and Singapore (at USD $1,414 per month) per rack.

 

The largest Data Centre geographical clusters in the region are Tokyo and Seoul, followed by TKO (Tseung Kwan O in Hong Kong), East & West Singapore and Cyberjaya (Malaysia).

DCP has identified 17 third party Data Centre facilities under construction across the region with Singapore in particular continuing to add new facilities, with new build outs by Global Switch, Equinix, ST Telemedia and Colt Telecom. Singapore has become established as an Asia Pacific hub for international companies expanding into Asia including cloud, content and hosting companies.
