Global colocation provider Telehouse is expanding its footprint in the Southeast Asian market, revealing plans to open a new data centre facility in Thailand’s capital, Bangkok.
Telehouse and its Japanese parent company KDDI are working together on the 9,000 square metre facility, which will claim a power capacity of 9.5 megavolt amperes (MVA).
The new site, known as Telehouse Bangkok, is expected to be finished and launched during the second quarter of 2023. Globally it takes the portfolio to more than 45 facilities.
Situated in the Rama 9 business district, close to the Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET), the new data center will offer four diverse routes for fiber access and provide a redundant power supply via two substations.
"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," said a company release.
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 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 helping drive the digitisation of Thailand and lift the data centre standard in the region."
