HYDERABAD: CtrlS Datacenters, a city firm, has signed a memorandum of agreement with Eastern Economic Corridor Office (EECO) of Thailand to lease a 10-acre (25-rai) land parcel for 50 years in Chonburi province.
The land will be used to build a 150 MW greenfield data centre campus and marks CtrlS’ first international market expansion as well as its first hyper-scale data centre in Thailand.
"Through this collaboration, we aim to serve customers’ needs for digital services, both domestic and international. The data centre is designed to meet high-end IT/computer needs of domestic enterprises," said Sridhar Pinnapureddy, chairman, CtrlS Datacenters.
"We see this data centre as a unique opportunity to contribute towards the 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," he added.
"The investment of CtrlS Datacenters in EECd by leasing about 25 rais (10 acres) for over 50 years will facilitate global trade and demand. This significant investment of CtrlS in EECd could lead to several valued collaborations in the future to come, to the organization, communities, Thailand and the world," said Chula Sukmanop, secretary-general of EECO.
CtrlS’ datacenter site offers proximity to submarine cable landing stations for Asia-America Gateway and Asia Direct Cable systems. It is also close to the EEC startup incubator and is elevated relative to flood-prone areas, a release said.
