Cloud business in Asia   The first data centres in the region

Hong Kong looks set to burnish its credentials as a regional data centre hub on plans by NetSuite to step up its infrastructure expansion across the Asia-Pacific.

NetSuite chief executive Zach Nelson said the company plans to establish its first data centres in the region next year, with Hong Kong and Singapore as the likely locations for those facilities.

“When we do data centres, it will have to be in multiple sites,” Nelson said in a media briefing ahead of his visit to Hong Kong this week.

He said having data centres at multiple sites help ensure automated failover for disaster recovery, so there is zero downtime for NetSuite’s users in case of service interruption at one location.

It is a similar strategy NetSuite adopted in Europe last year, when it opened two data centres in Dublin, Ireland, and Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
