Supersnap International Opens the Most Advanced Data Center in Asia

SUPERNAP International today announced the opening of one of the largest, most advanced data centers in the ASEAN region, SUPERNAP Thailand, The Bangkok Campus.

The opening of the campus is a major catalyst for propelling the success of “Thailand 4.0” – the Thai government’s plan to transform the country into a high-value based economy through innovation and technology.

This new multi-tenant carrier-neutral data center facility, located in the eastern province of Chonburi, 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 and Artificial Intelligence markets. SUPERNAP Thailand is expected to be a catalyst for attracting more investment to the region and is poised to become the data center hub for Asia Pacific.

SUPERNAP Thailand’s BANGKOK 1 data center is designed and built to the specifications of the industry-renowned, Tier IV Gold-rated Switch LAS VEGAS multi-tenant/colocation data centers in the United States. Its advanced design and diverse connectivity options are expected to enable clients to respond to rapid market growth and connect to global economies.

“We welcome clients throughout ASEAN, APAC and the rest of the world to run their mission-critical IT infrastructure in what we expect will be one of the most secure, reliable and connected data centers in the world,” said Sunita Bottse, Managing Director of SUPERNAP Thailand. “Our high standards in uptime, security, efficiency and resiliency can be critical for corporations who operate 24 hours a day in every business line – including finance, e-commerce, oil and gas, transportation and health care.”

The world-class SUPERNAP Thailand data center is one of the safest places to operate mission-critical IT infrastructure in the region. Its location 110 meters above sea level is outside of the flood zone and links to national and international telecommunications carriers enabling businesses to connect to key markets in Asia and around the world.

SUPERNAP Thailand incorporates Switch’s patented designs that deliver highly efficient HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) technology enabling the facility to host high-density IT workloads. It is designed to achieve a target PUE range of 1.35-1.45 – a level more efficient than other data centers in ASEAN, which typically have PUE levels above 2. Its efficient design and plans for sourcing renewable energy helps SUPERNAP Thailand promote economic growth and technology development in a sustainable manner, directly in alignment with the sustainability goal of Thailand 4.0.

The SUPERNAP Thailand data center in Chonburi is expected to include: 

  • 21,000 square meters of data center space with two data halls
  • 20 megawatts of power distributed through diverse 115 kilovolt transmission paths
  • Proprietary tri-redundant UPS power system
  • Up to 40 kilowatts of power per cabinet
  • Multi-carrier fiber couples with separate paths
  • Patented Switch SHIELD: dual independent roof decks rated to withstand 322 kph winds
  • 24/7 on-site network operations center (NOC), fire, safety and security
  • On-site, on-net member resources including conference spaces

“Companies that have built their own data centers in the past are now realizing that they can mitigate risks and achieve better service level agreements (SLAs) by operating in SUPERNAP Thailand’s mission-critical colocation data center,” Sunita Bottse said. “Clients who tour the SUPERNAP Thailand data center experience first-hand the power and scale of the campus and what that means to their business growth.”
