This IDC Market Note provides an Asia/Pacific-focused overview of ST Telemedia Global Data Centres' (STT GDC) physical footprint, types of customers, key accounts, strategic direction, product portfolio, recent merger and acquisition activities, and country-level analysis. It identifies both the strengths and challenges associated with STT GDC's rapid joint venture (JV) business expansion model.
"In five short years, STT GDC has emerged to become a significant regional player in the Asia/Pacific datacenter (DC) provider market. Despite its forays into the European market, the company is very much Asia/Pacific-focused seeing it as the key region of the future. STT GDC's acquisition road map, should it see through to fruition, will result in one of the most comprehensive DC footprints across the Asia/Pacific region," said Glen Duncan, associate research director, Datacenter and Enterprise Infrastructure, IDC Asia/Pacific.
