CtrlS Datacenters Ltd, Asia’s largest Rated-4 Datacenter (DC) operator, has signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) with EECO (Eastern Economic Corridor Office) to lease a 10-acre (25-rai) land parcel for 50 years located at Chonburi Province.
The land will be used to build a 150 MW datacenter greenfield datacenter campus and marks CtrlS’ first international market expansion as well as its first hyperscale datacenter in Thailand.
At a time when the digitalization across Thailand, deployment of 5G, and improved connectivity with highly efficient submarine cables with countries such as USA, China, Japan, Singapore and Taiwan is making the country an attractive hub for digital infrastructure, the datacenter development in the Eastern Economic Corridor will attract both internatonal and domestic hyperscale and enterprise customers.
Speaking on the MoA, Sridhar Pinnapureddy, Chairman, CtrlS Datacenters Ltd, said, “Through this collaboration, we aim to serve customers’ needs for digital services, both domestic and international. The datacenter is designed to meet hyperscalers’ needs in addition to serving high-end IT/compute needs of domestic enterprises.”
He added, “We see this datacenter as a unique opportunity to contribute towards development of Thailand’s eastern region and offer a robust diverse option for international customers and partners for establishing their footprint in the country and region. Thailand is strategically well positioned at the centre of Southeast Asia and we strive to bring investments and international customers to the country through our datacenter.”
