Amazon to open New Zealand's first data center with global market set to reach $948bn by 2030 as pandemic proves defining moment for cloud, says GlobalData
Posted in Technology
  • Data centers predicted to become a $948bn global industry by 2030 according to GlobalData
  • Cloud data centres could become increasingly essential for Amazon to support the size and scale of the company's day-to-day operations.
  • Boosted by the pandemic, the global share of total data center traffic taken by the cloud is predicted to increase from 88% in 2016 to 95% in 2021

Amazon is set to open New Zealand's first cloud data center in 2024, providing jobs and support for local business and start-ups. This is likely in response to the growing reliance on cloud computing during the COVID-19 pandemic, with forecasts from leading data and analytics company GlobalData predicting that cloud data traffic will increase from 88% of all data traffic in 2016 to over 95% by the end of 2021.

GlobalData's latest report, 'Thematic Research: Technology - Data Centers Report 2020', reveals that the global data centers market is set to double in the next 10 years from $466bn in 2020 to reach $948bn by 2030, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.7%. Much of this market expansion will come from building more hyperscale data centers to support the high levels of throughput and performance efficiency required by Big Tech companies like Amazon.

Rachel Jones, Thematic Analyst at GlobalData, commented: "The company's move to construct a new cloud unit in New Zealand is unlikely to be an isolated project, as this type of data center could well become increasingly essential for Amazon to support the size and scale of its day-to-day operations."

As a result of the pandemic, the internet has become a lifeline for many businesses, facilitating the use of collaboration software and enabling remote work. This has boosted demand for cloud-based services, with businesses becoming increasingly reliant on data centers.

Jones continues: "The pandemic has demonstrated the vital importance of cloud data centers for business activity to the point where they could now be regarded as an essential utility, alongside water, electricity and gas. Data centers are vital in supporting and sustaining people's everyday life and Amazon's project has the capacity to help to improve network availability for the local population."

Amazon's New Zealand cloud data centre will create 1000 jobs by 2034, both in the construction and operation of the center once it opens in 2024.

Jones adds: "The construction of hyper-scale data centers globally will continue at a steady pace as demand for data capacity grows. GlobalData predicts that hyper-scale data centers will represent 53% of all data center servers by the end of 2021, with their construction continuing to support local economic growth through job creation and enhancing network availability in rural areas."
