Apr 26, 2018 – SUPERNAP Thailand, the recognized leader in colocation services, won “Excellence in Data Centre Service Award Southeast Asia” and the best “Data Centre Location Award” at Datacloud Asia 2018 held at the Capella Hotel in Singapore recently. It is the first time that a data center in Thailand won an award from the international premier conference for data centres and cloud technology in the region.
The awards recognize SUPERNAP Thailand as the leading Southeast Asia data center provider for its most efficient, high density and ultrascale capacity. Chonburi Province, where SUPERNAP Thailand is located, is recognized as the most attractive location for attracting operators and cloud services providers. Chonburi province is part of the EEC (Eastern Economic Corridor) zone and is strategically positioned for the submarine cables and “one belt one road” project. It is Thailand’s new flagship investment zone designed to accommodate next-generation industries and meet the Thailand 4.0 policy.
The Datacloud Asia award recognizes genuine innovation and the continuing evolution in the flourishing Asia digital infrastructure market.
“Datacloud Asia goes from strength to strength and the award winners mirror the optimism, dynamism and entrepreneurism that is permeating throughout the region,” said Mr. Philip Low, Host of Datacloud Asia and President of BroadGroup. “The rapid development of the Asian data economy can lead global innovation and break down old mindsets from many aspects.”
“We are extremely honored to accept the awards, that are a testimonial to our efforts in providing the excellent and the most trusted data center service to our customers in Thailand and across the region, said Mrs. Sunita Bottse, Managing Director of SUPERNAP Thailand. “Moving towards the transformation of the economy, we foresee that the demand for innovative, scalability, security, redundancy, and availability will tremendously increase.
We will remain steadfast in our commitment to continue to deliver excellent customer service, thus powering their ability to the greater success.”
SUPERNAP Thailand was one of five nominees for the Excellence in Data Center Service Award. The company won over its counterparts from South Korea, Hong Kong, Indonesia, and Singapore. Revolutionary innovations such as tri-redundant power systems, modular building design and 100% heat containment technologies allow SUPERNAP Thailand to efficiently facilitate client growth without current or future concerns over reliability of power supply, cooling, connectivity or space. The award reiterates SUPERNAP Thailand’s positioning as the most trusted world-class purpose-built data center for customers with a long-term vision to develop Thailand’s presence as a serious data center hub for Asia Pacific.
While the award for best “Data Center Location” recognizes Chonburi Province as a prime location for data centers in Asia, it succeeded over three other locations nominated from China, India, and Malaysia. This strongly confirms that SUPERNAP Thailand has been cited as the best strategic location to provide support for growth for all investors in Asia. In addition, SUPERNAP Thailand is located outside Bangkok’s flood zone and 110 metres above sea level and able to access numerous national and international telecommunications carriers with proximity 27km to the international cable landing station.
Established in 2017, SUPERNAP Thailand targets customers from government bodies, the banking and finance sectors, insurance and healthcare providers, cloud solution providers, and e-commerce companies both in-country and across ASEAN countries.
