Hosting in China: how does it work?
It is really attractive to do business in China for European companies. The country has a rapid economic and social development. It’s a fact that GDP growth has averaged nearly 10 percent a year.
Where cloud hosting is already the standard in Europe and the United States, it’s not yet the case in China. Of course, China is known as the world largest e-commerce market and mobile payment landscape, but China has a huge delay in moving enterprises to the cloud.
More than 14 percent of corporates IT budget went to cloud in 2017, which is more than double the amount of that in 2013. The United States spends around 29 percent of the total IT budget in 2017, from 14 percent back in 2013.
But what if you want to start with hosting in the Chinese market? What does that take? Can one simply start to re-route the company's traffic? What about licenses?
