The growing presence of foreign companies in China has increased demand for data centers with operational efficiency matching global standards, according to the study.

But a number of companies, including Intel and Advanced Micro Devices, have established data centers in Malaysia in recent years. Malaysia was viewed favorably in the survey for a balance of low energy costs, low inflation rates and ease of doing business, but poor Internet connectivity and political instability remained concerns.
