Telehouse plans to open a data center in Thailand in 2023

UK-based co-location provider Telehouse on Thursday announced that it plans to open a new data center in Bangkok, Thailand, with its parent company, Japanese telecommunications operator KDDI.  

The new site, known as Telehouse Bangkok, is expected to be launched during the second quarter of 2023.  

The new data center, located in the Rama 9 business district, close to the Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET), will offer four diverse routes for fiber access and provide an unnecessary power supply via two substations.  

“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,” said a company release.  

Kenichi Miyashita, Managing Director, Telehouse Thailand, said that “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.”  

Adding “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 digitization of Thailand and lift the data center standard in the region.”  

It is worth mentioning that Telehouse Bangkok will be the first in the market to offer four routes for fiber access, said the company.  

“It will also be the city’s first purpose-built data center focused on connectivity,” it noted.  

Customers can expect more scalability and flexibility with this new data center Telehouse added.  

The facility’s services include a power supply with two substations, which the company highlighted as a “very rare” trait in the market. Also, backup generators are in place in case of a power outage, on top of cooling and 24/7 security systems.  

Thailand is the third location in Southeast Asia to hold a Telehouse data center after Singapore and Vietnam, joining more than 45 of the company’s other data centers worldwide.
