UNLIMITED POWER FOR INFINITE GROWTH AT THE PRIME LOCATION
Thailand is on the move to become ASEAN’s digital infrastructure hub by 2020. According to a Frost & Sullivan report, Thailand’s Internet of Things (IoT) spending in 2014 amounted to US$ 57.7 million, and it is forecasted to increase by 1600% by 2020.

Together with the commitment from Thai government on 20 Year Digital Plan to transform economy towards service and digitalization, it will drive demand for data center facilities and services outstrip supply.
With high growth for social media and OTT application along with the growing of cloud services where such sector accounts for a considerable proportion of colocation space, it means that the need for customer experience with the improve latency is needed. The SUPERNAP Thailand, a new multi-tenant carrier-neutral data center facility located in the eastern province of Chonburi under EEC (Eastern Economic Corridor) zone, surely plays an important role in the region as the critical infrastructure that powers the ability of businesses to succeed on the growing Internet of Things, Cloud Computing and Artificial Intelligence markets. Purposely built as a mirror of Switch’s SUPERNAP U.S. facilities, the first Tier IV Gold carrier-neutral colocation data centers on the planet, it means colocation at SUPERNAP Thailand allows clients the confidence to rest assure that business critical applications are running at full 100% efficiencies for both Primary and DR sites.
