Alibaba is reconsidering the setting up of a second data center in Middle East
Posted On July 2, 2019
Alibaba announced its plan last year to open another data hub following the success of the one currently operating in the UAE, but now it is re-evaluating this decision because of changes in its business and facility requirements in the region. The middle east is seeing a rising demand for cloud services as more companies migrate their data, applications, and servers to web-based cloud providers. Alibaba cloud is currently in third place with regards to the cloud database market share globally following Amazon and Microsoft.
