Abu Dhabi’s Khazna Data Centres, one of the largest data center operators in the Middle East, expects the UAE to become a top destination globally for the industry.

Khazna's CEO Hassan Alnaqbi believes data centres have become one of the world’s most valuable resources as they enable e-commerce, cloud computing and remote work, and also drive the global economy. The data centre industry in the UAE has already become one of the biggest in the world and is being driven by government support and investment.

Due to the staggering amounts of data generated around the clock, the UAE will see more investments in data centre infrastructure as businesses are increasingly aware of the need to manage data and information efficiently and cost-effectively,

Hassan Alnaqbi told The National.

Currently, Khazna operates 12 data centres across the UAE, with a total planned capacity of 300 megawatts by the end of 2023. As data centres help businesses meet growing consumer demand, they turn into one of the largest per capita consumers of electric power. This is why sustainability should be the next focus area for the industry, Alnaqbi added.
