India-based operator CtrlS Datacenters has partnered with Thailand's state-owned telecommunications company, National Telecom Public (NT), to build a 150 MW data center campus in the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) in Chonburi, Thailand.

CtrlS previously announced its project plan in Thailand, signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Eastern Economic Corridor Office (EECO) to lease a total of a 10-acre land parcel for 50 years for a site located in Chonburi Province.

“CtrlS Datacenters Ltd., Asia's largest Rated-4 data center operator, is collaborating with National Telecom Public Company (NT), a telecom provider that has the most extensive international communication networks and the most submarine cables landing in Thailand, for its upcoming 150 MW data center campus at the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) in Chonburi, Thailand,” CtrlS recently announced.

“The greenfield data center campus in Thailand marks CtrlS’ first international market expansion as well as its first hyperscale data center campus in Thailand,” the company added.

The new data center site is close to submarine cable landing stations of the existing AAG (Asia-America Gateway) cable system as well as the upcoming ADC (Asia Direct Cable) cable system, which is scheduled to launch next year.

The two companies are entering into a collaboration for the convergence of data center colocation services, a cable landing station, a network connectivity hub and several cloud-based services that are put together and known as Convergence of Data Center, CLS & Terrestrial.

For this specific project, CtrlS is building the campus itself, while NT will serve as one of its partners for network and connectivity.

Furthermore, the development of a data center in the EEC is believed to attract both foreign and local hyperscale and enterprise customers from different sectors and industries.

CtrlS Datacenters' CTO, Ashish Ahuja, said, “We are delighted to have this strategic collaboration with NT, extending their AAG, ADC and future submarine cable landing stations into this data center, and [to] jointly develop a new teleport and Point of Interconnection in the facility, enabling our data center customers to have seamless connectivity within the country and to other markets in the region.”
