Malaysia’s Data Centers - A Local Industry ready to take on the world?

Malaysia’s national vision for data centers highlights the industry’s potential to become a regional ICT hub by 2020.

Malaysia offers strategic advantages and prime locations in the South East Asia region for data centers due to:

  • Relatively lower costs of power and real estate
  • The reliability of the power grid and of connectivity
  • Secure locations, such as Iskandar and Cyberjaya, away from seismic active zones
  • A national government and local authorities who are supportive of  the data center industry

These strategic and geographic advantages are in themselves not enough to deliver such an ambitious vision.   It will require an active collaboration between the stakeholders within the local data center industry to transform Malaysia into a world-class ICT hub, founded on a strong and supportive data center backbone.

This transformation has already begun! In October 2013, the Malaysian Data Centre Alliance (MDCA), a professional alliance for the data centre industry, was launched to oversee the collective and beneficial development of data centers. As the industry refreshes its IT capacity and deploys new higher density technologies Malaysia saw higher rate of increase in power consumption (16.9%) than any other market in the Asia Pacific between 2012 and 2013.  (DCD Global Census 2013).

Viewing presentations after a DatacenterDynamics conference

Registered attendees of an event are able to access the majority of the material presented after an event. We are introducing a new system - PresentationPLAYBACK - which enables you to listen to a full sound recording of the session along with the PowerPoint and any associated movies in a single file.

You will therefore need to have a recent version of Adobe Flash Player installed on your computer in order to view them (Google Chrome Users need not worry about this, as it's pre-built-in). Although we now endeavour to record all presentations in this format, occasionally - for technical reasons beyond our control - it is not possible to fully capture all sessions; in such cases you will only be able to view a PDF.

To access PresentationPLAYBACK you must be signed into your account. Click on the MyDCD button on the top navigation panel which will take you to your personal homepage - on the right hand column you will find an area headed 'My Presentations'. Here are listed the conferences you have access to (see access and restrictions below). The links will take you to the programme page of that conference, and by clicking on a session you will be taken to the individual conference asset where you will find the feature. Alternatively you can navigate to the conference site you wish and acess the file directly from there - remember you must be signed in.

DatacenterDynamics Conference sessions with this feature available will display the PresentationPLAYBACK icon:

The player is simple to use. Click on the play button for automatic playback, or advance through the slides.

Access and restrictions

The conference presentations you can view depend on your membership level. Silver members only have access to those from the events they have actually attended, whilst Gold members have access to presentation materials from all our events around the world.
