Hyderabad CtrlS Datacenters Ltd, Asia’s largest Rated-4 Datacenter (DC) operator, is collaborating with National Telecom Public Company (NT), a telecom provider who has the most extensive international communication networks and the most submarine cables landing in Thailand, for its upcoming 150-MW datacenter campus at the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) in Chonburi, Thailand.

The greenfield datacenter campus in Thailand marks CtrlS’ first international market expansion as well as its first hyperscale datacenter campus in Thailand. The digitalisation across Thailand, deployment of 5G, and improved connectivity with highly efficient submarine cables with countries such as US, China, Japan, Singapore and Taiwan makes the country an attractive hub for digital infrastructure.

Sridhar Pinnapureddy, Chairman, CtrlS Datacenters, said: “Through this collaboration, we aim to serve customers’ needs for digital services, both domestic and international. The datacenter is designed to serve hyperscaler needs in addition to serving high-end IT/compute needs of domestic enterprises. We see this as a unique opportunity to contribute towards development of Thailand’s eastern region.”

NT is a provider of data communication networks both domestically and internationally. It has developed telecommunication infrastructure services in the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC). In collaboration with domestic and international telecom operators, it is committed to building digital capabilities as well as investing and expanding Thailand’s communications to the world. Colonel Sanpachai Huvanandana, President and CEO of NT, said: “This MoU marks the commitment to upgrade the telecommunications network and support the use of digital technology for the industrial sector in the Eastern Economic Corridor (ECC) through both parties’ strengths in resource, expertise, and infrastructure.”

“This will in turn push Thailand to become an attractive economic center for investors in various industrial sectors and support digital investors in Thailand and from abroad to invest in businesses related to various technologies such as 5G, AI, Cloud, IoTs, Smart City and Big Data, as well as being a business destination for global content operators,” he added.
