In the Caribbean region, Panama, Jamaica, Cayman Islands, Bermuda, and Aruba are some of the countries working towards generating electricity from renewable energy sources. For instance, Bermuda’s Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) will lead to 85% of electricity from renewable energy sources by 2035.
Cloud service providers partner with local companies to provide cloud services in the region. For instance, in April 2021, Millicom (Tigo) partnered with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to provide AWS cloud-based services through its multi-Cloud managed services in Panama.
KEY HIGHLIGHTS OF THE CARIBBEAN DATA CENTER MARKET
Bahamas, Panama, Jamaica, and Cayman Island are some major countries witnessing investments from various data center operators due to different national development schemes. For instance, the Bahamas government announced National Development Plan Vision 2040 to improve investments and guide government decisions to attract investments in the country in the coming 25 years.
The Caribbean Free Trade Association (CARIFTA) aims to strengthen the region’s economy. Also, the governments of various countries are establishing special economic zones to attract investments in the region. Panama’s government also has established free economic zones such as the Colon free trade zone and Pacifico special economic zone that will offer space for industrial development with benefits such as tax exemptions. Also, it will attract investment from the US.
Government steps such as personal data protection law established in the Bahamas, Panama, and the Cayman Islands have strengthened the Caribbean data center market. For instance, in May 2021, the Panama Personal Data Protection Rule was enacted, which will regulate data protection and privacy in the country.
Factors such as the adoption of cloud computing and advanced technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), big data, artificial intelligence, and government support for data centers are driving the data center market in the Caribbean region.
