- Third location in Southeast Asia after Singapore & Vietnam
Telehouse has announced plans to open Bangkok’s first purpose-built data centre focused on connectivity as it continues to expand its presence in the Southeast Asian market.
In a statement, the colocation provider said together with parent company KDDI, a Global Fortune 300 telecommunications and systems integration provider located in Japan, it expects to open the 9,000 sqm technologically advanced facility with power capacity of 9.5MVA, during the second quarter of 2023.
Known as Telehouse Bangkok, it will be the company’s third location in Southeast Asia, joining Singapore and Vietnam, and will be among more than 45 Telehouse data centres worldwide, the company said.
Its new Bangkok data centre will answer the growing demand in the country for connectivity following the shift towards a digital economy.
Kenichi Miyashita, managing director of Telehouse Thailand said Telehouse Bangkok comes at a time when the data centre market in the country is seeing robust growth owing to the boom in the digital economy and supported by the Thai government’s Industry 4.0 transformation plan.
“Telehouse Bangkok aims to provide an environment for all the Internet-related customers, such as cloud service providers, content providers, telecoms and ISPs, to connect with one another with minimal latency.
“This is our commitment to help drive the digitisation of Thailand and lift the data centre standard in the region,” he said.
The company, which operates highly connected carrier dense data centres in London and Paris, said it will offer a global standard in data centre services in Thailand, allowing customers to connect with carriers and cloud service providers with minimal latency.
The new data centre will be the first in the market to offer four diverse routes for fibre access, it said.
It will also provide redundant power supply, with two substations, which is very rare in the market, providing reliable back-up generators in case of a power outage, cooling and 24/7 security systems, giving customers added peace of mind, it added.
Ideally situated in the Rama 9 business district, close to the Stock Exchange of Thailand, Telehouse Bangkok will be close to local carrier network facility locations, enabling customers to optimise their networks more efficiently and at a premium quality.
