South Korea is becoming a resilient data center market, propelled by a strategy prioritizing cloud service, a conducive business climate, and a well-established regulatory framework. Moreover, South Korea is a prominent Southeast Asian market, with investment opportunities driven by Artificial Intelligence and Renewable Energy initiatives. Major investments from local and international data center providers position the country as a pivotal player in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) digital infrastructure landscape.

Recently, South Korea has seen the development of smart cities such as Seoul, Incheon, Busan, and Daejeon. These cities implemented various smart solutions, including the Integrated Public Transportation Fare System, Demand-Responsive Transportation (DRT), Smart Grid, Smart Waste Management System, and numerous others.

Significant Growth in Cloud, Mission Critical, and High-Performance Infrastructure to Increase OCP and Arm-based Server Adoption Booming the Market Growth

The expansion of hyperscale data centers will likely increase the demand for arm-based servers and promote the procurement of high-performance infrastructure solutions and OCP infrastructure solutions. South Korea-based cloud service provider Douzone Bizon adopted Intel Xeon Scalable Processor solutions to decrease the total cost of ownership for managing blade servers.
