ゴールデン・ウィーク明けに、Asia のデータセンター情報をまとめてみましたが、その後も続々と、インフラに関連する興味深いトピックが登場しています。そこで、今週は、5月と6月のクラウド/データセンター/サーバー動向についてトレースしていきたいと思います。その中には、対訳として Agile_Cat に掲載したトピックもありますので、まずは、それらを振り返ってみます。

Cloud Asia News を立ち上げてから、すでに一年以上が過ぎていますが、中国人アナリストが分析するクラウド動向レポートを、初めて見つけたので訳してみました。 それは、Alibaba の勢いを説明するものであり、すでに同社は、世界の Top-3 を構成すると論じています。「5/19: 中国の主張:Amazon と Microsoft に Alibaba が加わり、クラウドの Top-3 が構成される」 いまでは、一般の中国人と疎遠になってしまった Google が、Alibaba にはじき出されたという感じですね。また、Allibaba は、グローバルでの展開を視野に入れた、Equinix との提携も進めています。「6/5: Alibaba クラウドも Equinix プライベート・リンクに接続:香港 DC を介して中国と世界はつながるのか?
 
ecomm-marketplace-active-buyersそして、どうしても気になるのが、同じコマース・サイトとしての規模の比較ですが、この 4月に Business Insiderが、両サイトにおけるアクティブ・サブスクライバーの数を、このようなチャートを用いて比較しています。その他にも、2014年8月の TechInAsia が「Alibaba と Amazon:両社のスケールとビジネス・モデルを比較する!」というインフォグラフィクスを提供しています。
 
話は、鳴り物入りで始まった VCE の崩壊劇に飛びます。 つまり、VMware/Coiso/EMC 連合軍から Cisco が実質的に離脱したというトピックなのですが、そこに Quanta が一枚噛んでいるという、Taiwan からの興味深い情報です。「5/22: Quanta の VCE サーバーが、VxRack に独占的に搭載される?」こうした、グローバルでの勢力分布図を書き換えるような出来事の影に、ちゃんと台湾の大手が食い込んでいるのが印象的です。 そして Quanta の展開ですが、以下のトピックスを見る限り、より上位のレイヤまでを取り込んだ、ソリューション・ベンダーへの道を歩み始めたように感じますね。
 
5/04: Quanta pushing into private cloud solutions for revenue growth
6/17: Quanta to strengthen software R&D for enterprise server business
 
その他のデータセンター関連情報ですが、以下に示すとおり、Digital Reality の 進出が本格化し、Google が更なる投資を表明するなど、依然として Singapore ラッシュが続いています。しかし、その一方では、Apple が Foxconn と提携して、China 本土にデータセンターを構築すると発表しています。また、Open Data Center Alliance のボードに China Unicom と Infosys が参加するようですが、こうしたアジアの活気を見ると、当然のことなのでしょう。
 
5/25: Digital Realty Opening $150m Singapore Data Center
6/03: Google が、シンガポール 第2DC の計画を発表した

MalaysiaIt is almost lunchtime when I step into Suntech Tower, an unspectacular office building which is home to several high-flying Penang startups. As is typical here, the afternoon sun is scorching, so the cold air-conditioning that greets me as I enter is a welcome reprieve. Today, I am here to visit Piktochart, whose infographic design app is arguably one of the Malaysian state’s most accomplished startups to date.

cna_6この Top-10 にも入っていますが、インドネシアにおけるテレコムの動きが活発になってきているようです。 インフラに関しては、つまり、データセンターに関しては、シンガポールのファシリティを利用するケースが多いようです。 このインドネシアも、たいへんな数のモバイル・サブスクライバーを抱えていますので、それに対応すべく、データセンターへの投資が盛んになってきています。_AC Stamp
