2 August 2021, PETALING JAYA – Malaysia’s cloud and storage sector is set to be a major economic contributor with an indicative total addressable market valued at USD1.4 Billion. This comes off the back of rapid digitalisation, spurred on by the pandemic combined with the emergence of more online and digital-based services. The total addressable market value is split across four main sub-segments namely; cloud service, storage, server and hyperconverged infrastructure.
Looking to unlock this massive economic potential, Zadara – an international enterprise cloud service provider has now ventured into the Malaysian market as part of their overall Southeast Asia expansion plans. The foray into the Malaysian market comes hand-in-hand with the announcement of a new strategic partnership with KH Datagate – a leading infrastructure service provider.
Commenting on the announcement, LindSay Lim, Regional Sales Manager for Zadara said, “We view Malaysia as a high potential market for the industry. With strong government support and increasing appetite amongst corporate entities, we believe that the market opportunity will only continue to grow. This is why we have now entered the market space – to work collaboratively and synergistically with other industry players to fully realise this potential.”
Malaysia continues to grow in the ranks of Asia Pacific’s cloud readiness index (CRI) with the nation currently ranked eighth within the region – ahead of China, India and Indonesia. The country’s highest potential sectors in terms of cloud adoption include cybersecurity, government regulatory, privacy and business sophistication.
