Telehouse set to expand presence in Southeast Asia with opening of the most connected data center in Thailand
Global colocation provider, Telehouse, has announced plans to open Bangkok’s first purpose-built data center focused on connectivity as it continues to expand its presence in the Southeast Asian market.
Telehouse, together with parent company KDDI, a Global Fortune 300 telecommunications and systems integration provider located in Japan, expect to open the 9,000 sqm technologically advanced facility with power capacity of 9.5MVA, known as Telehouse Bangkok, during the second quarter of 2023. Telehouse Bangkok, will be the company’s third location in Southeast Asia, joining Singapore and Vietnam, and will be among more than 45 Telehouse data centers worldwide.
Telehouse has more than 30 years of experience as a truly carrier-neutral data center provider, and its new Bangkok data center will answer the growing demand in the country for connectivity following the shift towards a digital economy. Telehouse, which operates highly connected carrier dense data centers in London and Paris, will offer a global standard in data center services in Thailand, allowing customers to connect with carriers and cloud service providers with minimal latency.
The new data center will be the first in the market to offer four diverse routes for fiber access. 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.
Ideally situated in the Rama 9 business district, close to the Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET), Telehouse Bangkok will be close to local carrier network facility locations, enabling customers to optimize their networks more efficiently and at a premium quality. As a brand-new data center, customers can expect more scalability and flexibility, not only for their immediate planning requirements, but also for future growth.
Kenichi Miyashita, Managing Director, Telehouse Thailand, commented: “Telehouse Bangkok will be the first data center of its kind in Bangkok and will come at a time when we expect the data center 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 digitization of Thailand and lift the data center standard in the region.”
