Telehouse has announced plans to open a connectivity-focussed data centre in Bangkok.
The 9,000 sqm facility, called Telehouse Bangkok, will have a power capacity of 9.5MVA and is set to be completed in the second quarter of 2023.
The data centre will provide four routes for fibre access and redundant power supply via two substations. Telehouse Bangkok will be situated in the Rama 9 business district, close to local carrier network facility locations.
The site, a joint venture by Telehouse and its parent company KDDI, the company’s third location in Southeast Asia, joining Singapore and Vietnam.
Kenichi Miyashita, managing director, Telehouse Thailand, commented, “Telehouse Bangkok will be the first data centre of its kind in Bangkok and will come at a time when we expect the data centre market in the country to see robust growth owing to the boom in the digital economy, supported by the Thai government’s exciting Industry 4.0 transformation plan.
“Telehouse Bangkok aims to provide the best 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. Telehouse Bangkok is a sign of our commitment to help drive the digitisation of Thailand and lift the data centre standard in the region.”
