NTT Communications has acquired a 74% share of Digital Port Asia, a provider of data center services in Thailand.
Digital Port will next year open a large data center in Amata Industrial Park in a suburb of Bangkok, where many multinational companies are based.

The planned 9,600 square-meter facility, said to be in a flood-free location, will accommodate about 1,400 racks, making it one of the largest data centers in Thailand.

Many Japanese and other multinational companies are expanding their operations in Thailand against the backdrop of robust economic growth in this country and the surrounding Greater Mekong Subregion, NTT said.

Data center services are in high demand among companies looking to optimize their ICT environments and strengthen business continuity planning (BCP) following the destructive floods of 2011.
"BCP (business continuity planning) strengthening is a key focus of our cloud-service expansion plan in Thailand,” said Motoo Tanaka, SVP of Cloud Services at NTT Com.
“Digital Port's new data center will be a highly reliable facility on its own, and by combining it with existing data centers in the country, we expect to achieve even greater reliability for enhanced BCP solutions.”
