Where Are The Biggest Asian Data Centre Locations?

With Facebook announcing the opening of its first data center in Asia, an 11 story building in the heart of Singapore, Asia’s role as a home for large data centers has been once again brought to the fore.

Introducing the widespread use of video to an organisation causes a paradigm shift that can be daunting for both employees and executive leadership to accept.
