Get to know True IDC Experience Center
True IDC Experience Center is part of an ecosystem for startups and technology entrepreneurs under the True Digital Park. This centre was created with the concept of "Infinite Reflection to Your Digital Journey," which refers to the endless reflection between the current need for digital transformation and digital infrastructure support. There are two zones within this learning centre: the data centre zone and the cloud zone, which are the two main businesses that True IDC provides to corporate clients. Each zone provides new knowledge to visitors by presenting information in an easy-to-understand way, adding to the visitors' technological know-how and experiences, as well as providing consultation and guidance to build understanding based on correct principles and lead to the use of good technology infrastructure.
The Data Center Zone allows visitors to experience the data centre facilities, mocked up within the True Digital Park building. It starts with the Data Hall, a small server room that provides an opportunity to learn about the various infrastructure and accommodating systems. Here the visitors will feel like they are in a real data centre. To learn more, visitors can explore the data centre virtually and learn about its operations through a 360-degree tour, which offers an immersive experience of the actual data centre that is not normally accessible to the public. Additionally, visitors can observe the work of the experts in the Command Center, who closely monitor the various systems to ensure they run smoothly around the clock and prevent issues that could potentially impact the digital systems within the data centre.
At the Cloud Zone, through a variety of exhibits, visitors can delve into the workings of cloud systems that underlie various online platforms in everyday life. They can also learn about cloud solutions from world-class service providers, observe the work of Thai cloud service developers, such as True IDC Cloud, and meet and chat with Cloud Heroes or teams of cloud service experts who are available for consultation throughout the day. The visit concludes with entertaining games and activities from the Cloudtalk Community, a well-known community in the IT industry.
Throughout its 20 years of business operation, True IDC has remained committed to developing services to meet the needs of customers of all sizes and industries, while also continuously innovating to disseminate knowledge and understanding of technology to Thai society, making it more accessible to the general public. We intend to be a leading force in propelling Thailand towards becoming a digital centre of ASEAN and on par with other countries on the global stage.
Those interested can visit the True IDC Experience Center every Monday to Friday from 10:00 to 18:00. Visitors are also invited to join a free digital experience tour every Tuesday and Thursday from 14:00 to 14:30. The centre is located on the 2nd floor of True Digital Park West building (BTS Punnawithi station, exit 6).
