RIYADH (Agencies): The digital arm of the Kingdom’s futuristic project NEOM has announced the role of its $500 million data center in offering global tech giants an end-to-end gateway to Saudi Arabia and the wider GCC markets.
‘ZeroPoint DC’, launched in partnership with EzdiTek, will support three data centers, operating a capacity of 36MW that can be further expanded, NEOM Tech & Digital said in a statement.
The giant data center, which seeks to be operational during the first half of this year, comes as part of a $1 billion investment by the city in AI-based products, two of which it introduced on the first day of Saudi flagship tech event LEAP.
Customers across the Middle East, Africa, and Eastern Europe will see the new data center provide facility management, data center operations, and smart fit-out hand services, the company added.
It will allow them to rent and utilize ready-built data centers where they can later set up and operate their own data centers, subject to NEOM’s rules.
