According to foreign media reports, Amazon recently announced that it will invest approximately US$7.5 billion in Auckland to build its first data center in New Zealand, and it is expected to start production in 2024. The data center is Amazon’s 25th AWS data center worldwide. The relevant person in charge pointed out that the data center will be a “world-class computing infrastructure.” At the same time, AWS promised to “use 100% renewable energy by 2025.”
The new data center is likely to be built in the newly developed northwest of Auckland, which is close to international fiber optic cables. At the same time, New Zealand’s largest Internet center and the data centers of Microsoft and Infratil are also located here.
The relevant person in charge of Amazon said that the $7.5 billion includes the cost of building at least three data centers and storage hardware, as well as operating costs including water, electricity and wages.
Amazon’s deployment of the data center industry in New Zealand will create at least 1,000 jobs in New Zealand and will greatly drive New Zealand’s GDP growth.
It is worth mentioning that in recent years, on the one hand, the impact of the epidemic has brought more online office and remote collaboration; on the other hand, with the development of the global digital economy, various factors have promoted New Zealand is no exception to the development of the data center industry supported by the underlying technology.
Since last year alone, many technology giants such as Microsoft, DCI (Australian Service Provider), Datagrid, and CDC owned by Infratil have deployed data centers in New Zealand. You know, New Zealand’s main data center services had to rely on Australia across the sea.
However, in recent years, with the increase in demand, New Zealand, which is closer to the Antarctic than Australia, has become a favorite place for many technology giants. It is believed that this trend will inject more economic growth momentum into this Oceanian island country, which is dominated by agriculture and animal husbandry.
