According to GlobalData, Amazon is going to open New Zealand’s first cloud data center in 2024 thus increasing cloud data traffic from 88% of all data traffic in 2016 to over 95% by the end of this year.

The report has found that the global data centers market is set to double over the next 10 years from $466 billion in 2020 to reach $948 billion by 2030. That’s a 6.7% growth at a compound annual growth.

Much of this market growth will come from building more hyper-scale data centers to support the high levels of throughput and performance efficiency required by Big Tech players.

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
