Digital Realty announced that it has been recognised as a ‘Leader’ in the inaugural IDC MarketScape: Asia Pacific Datacentre Operations and Management 2023 Vendor Assessment.
The assessment analyses the region’s colocation and interconnection market using the IDC MarketScape model. It presents a comprehensive view of market demand, expected buyer needs and the competitive strengths of digital infrastructure providers to help businesses manage data exchange securely and efficiently.
“Digital Realty has emerged as a Leader in the Asia/Pacific market by adapting to trends like high-density colocation and being the first to introduce NVIDIA DGX H100-ready datacentres to enable advanced AI workloads. Through PlatformDIGITAL™, they offer scalable and future-proof infrastructure for data-driven businesses in the region and across the globe,” said William Lee, Research Director and Mikhail Jaura, Research Analyst, Asia/Pacific Datacentre Research, IDC.
Digital Realty’s newest data centre in Osaka KIX13 and two facilities in Tokyo NRT10 and NRT12 are AI-ready, having been certified by NVIDIA as “DGX SuperPOD™-Ready” datacentres that can accommodate NVIDIA DGX-A100 and DGX-H100. These certifications are testament to Digital Realty’s dedication to provide dedicated, robust, and resilient environments optimised for intensive AI computing systems deployments at scale. Digital Realty has one of the widest digital infrastructure footprints in the world with robust coverage across the Asia Pacific. This includes growing core markets such Osaka and Tokyo, where it is set to launch a new facility next year. The company is also increasing its footprint in India, where it has acquired land in Mumbai and will be launching its first India data centre in Chennai in early 2024. The coming expansion of Digital Realty’s India joint venture will also strategically increase its global platform’s connectivity to data centres and other establishments in the country to meet the digital infrastructure needs of the fast-growing India market.
The IDC MarketScape noted, “Digital Realty’s PlatformDIGITAL™ is a compelling solution for data-driven businesses in search of a scalable and future-proof platform to meet their global hybrid and multi-cloud infrastructure requirements. PlatformDIGITAL™ offers secure and compliant solutions that are specifically designed for various industries, ensuring the highest level of data protection.” This recognition from the IDC MarketScape follows another recent recognition – Digital Realty was recently named as a Leader in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Datacentre Services 2023 Vendor Assessment for the third time.
“We are very honoured to be named a Leader in the IDC MarketScape for Asia Pacific. Digital Realty offers the world’s largest carrier-neutral digital infrastructure platform and as a hybrid datacentre operator, we give customers the flexibility to easily deploy and connect critical infrastructure, at any capacity, for any scale. We are committed to building a safe and open global meeting place that will enable the next wave of transformation in Asia Pacific and the world,” said Serene Nah, Managing Director and Head of Asia Pacific, Digital Realty.
