ETIX Everywhere expands to Asia launching new data centre campus in Bangkok with local partner Interlink Telecom.
ETIX Everywhere announced the acquisition of 67% interest in Genesis data centre in Bang Chalong, Bangkok on Monday, January 24th. Renamed ETIX Bangkok #1, this data centre will be the foundation of a new campus which will be developed in partnership with Thai telecommunications provider, Interlink Telecom. The new data centre campus marks ETIX Everywhere’s Asia expansion.
“We are very excited to announce our expansion into Asia starting with this acquisition in Bangkok, one of the most dynamic market in the zone. This first step in Asia is a major milestone in ETIX’s strategy to support our global customers providing them our best-in-class colocation services wherever they need,” said Louis Blanchot, Group CEO of ETIX Everywhere.
The data centre is already running its first phase of 2.4 MW of IT power, which will be significantly increased after the development of the campus. ETIX Everywhere’s new data centre will be the first in the market providing high level redundancy with 4 diverse routes for fibre access and power supply coming from 2 distinct substations.
Nuttanai Anuntarumporn, CEO of Interlink Telecom PLC added: “We are very pleased to have a strong partner like ETIX Everywhere with experience in this industry. We believe that our partnership will support the booming Southeast Asia data centre and cloud industry and lead us to a common success.”
Thailand hosts an important growth market for cloud and Over the Top (OTT) service providers with its large population and a strong internet presence. In order to meet the needs of this rapidly growing market, data centres should be brought to the source in order to provide faster and optimised services.
As one of Thailand’s largest telecom providers and data centre operators, Interlink Telecom is uniquely positioned to facilitate the country’s digital transformation alongside ETIX Everywhere.
“Our customers are world leading cloud and content service providers; they have very strict colocation requirement, and it has been difficult for them to find a data centre that can match with their standards in Thailand with enough capacity for expansion. We are very proud to finally offer them an answer to their needs. ETIX Everywhere has a big ambitions in Southeast Asia, first with this campus in Bangkok, and we are also very active in data centre opportunities in Vietnam and the Philippines,” commented Pierre Patris, CEO Asia of ETIX Everywhere.
