Telehouse plans to open data centre in Bangkok

Data company Telehouse announced plans to open Bangkok's first purpose-built data centre that focuses on connectivity in response to Thailand's shift towards a digital economy in the Rama IX business district.

The 9,000-square-metre technologically advanced facility under the name "Telehouse Bangkok" has a power capacity of 9.5 Mega Volt Amps and is set to welcome clients in the second quarter of 2023.

Kenichi Miyashita, Telehouse Thailand managing director, said the new facility will be the company's third location in Southeast Asia, joining Singapore and Vietnam, and will be among more than 45 Telehouse data centres worldwide.

The expansion is also in line with Telehouse's commitment to help drive the digitisation of Thailand and raise data centre standards in the region.

"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," Mr Miyashita said.

"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."

The new data centre will also be the first in the market to offer four diverse routes for fibre access and power supply with two substations. This means reliable backup generators in case of a power outage and 24/7 security systems.

According to Telehouse, its first data centre in Bangkok will be located in the Rama IX business district and close to the Stock Exchange of Thailand.
