Construction has begun on the new US$300 million (Bt11 billion) Supernap Thailand, the first Uptime Institute-rated Tier IV Gold data centre in Asia and the largest data centre in the Kingdom.

Located in Hemmaraj Industrial Estate, Chon Buri, the facility is expected to open in the first quarter of 2017 with capacity of more than 6,000 data server racks.

It is developed by Supernap Thailand, a joint venture of Supernap International, CPB Equity, Kasikornbank, Siam Commercial Bank, and True IDC.

“Not only will Supernap Thailand help grow Thailand’s digital economy, but it will also support Thai companies that seek to expand their offerings to the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) sector,” said Somkid Jiranuntarat, vice chairman of Kasikorn Business-Technology Group. “We know that ultimately this will support our customers and enable us to do more for the Thai business community and public. Having a world-class data centre is truly a competitive advantage for Thailand.”
