Global colocation provider, 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.
Telehouse aims to open Telehouse Bangkok, a 9,000 sqm technologically advanced facility with a 9.5MVA power capacity, in the second quarter of 2023, in collaboration with parent firm KDDI, a Global Fortune 300 telecommunications and systems integration provider based in Japan. Telehouse Bangkok will be the company's third Southeast Asian facility, following Singapore and Vietnam, and will be one of more than 45 Telehouse data centres worldwide.
Telehouse has more than 30 years of experience as a truly carrier-neutral data centre provider, and its new Bangkok data centre 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 centres in London and Paris, 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 industry to provide four different fibre access channels. It will also provide redundant power supply, with two substations, which is uncommon in the market, as well as reliable backup generators in the event of a power outage, cooling, and 24-hour security systems, giving clients further peace of mind.
Telehouse Bangkok will be adjacent to local carrier network facility locations, allowing clients to optimise their networks more efficiently and at a premium quality. It will be located in the Rama 9 business district, close to the Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET). Customers may expect more scalability and flexibility from a brand-new data centre, not only for their immediate planning needs, but also for future expansion.
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.”
