ST Telemedia Global Data Centres (STT GDC) has announced the official opening of its first data centre in Bangkok. Located in Thailand, the STT Bangkok 1 is the first of two buildings in the STT Bangkok Data Centre Campus, situated in Hua Mak. The building offers a gross floor area of 30,000 square metres and delivers up to 20MW of total IT power. The company says this can be scaled up to 40MW.
STT Bangkok 1 is the largest data centre in the city and is also understood to be the first data centre in Thailand to have been awarded both the TIA-942 Certification Rated-3 and Uptime Institute Tier III Constructed Facility.
“The launch of the STT Bangkok Data Centre Campus marks the first milestone for our company and a new era of digital infrastructure in Thailand,” Supparat Singhara Na Ayutthaya, CEO of STT GDC Thailand, said. “We are seeing a fast-growing demand for colocation services in Thailand from enterprises and cloud service providers that are continually expanding their business platforms to meet customers’ evolving demand for digital services, particularly during this prolonged Covid-19 situation.”
“ST Telemedia Global Data Centres has a proven ability to replicate and scale in the markets that we have built a presence in, helping customers navigate and expand into Asia’s fastest-growing yet most complex environments,” Clement Goh, CEO of Southeast Asia at STT GDC, said. “By delivering to their expectations, we have stayed adaptable and accommodating of differing customer needs yet ensuring a consistent experience in every market that we serve our customers.”
