Microsoft to Open First Regional Data Centre in Thailand

Microsoft has announced plans to open its first regional data centre in Thailand, aiming to enhance the availability of its cloud services.

The establishment of the data centre will expand the accessibility of Microsoft’s hyperscale cloud services, according to the company’s statement. During an event in Bangkok, Nadella highlighted that the move would provide Thailand with not only full capabilities of Azure, Microsoft’s cloud computing platform, but also world-class AI infrastructure.

In addition to boosting availability, the Thailand data centre will contribute to enterprise-grade reliability, performance, and compliance with data residency and privacy standards, as stated by Microsoft. Prime Minister Srettha Thaivisin also expressed his support, noting that the data centre aligns with Thailand’s goal of becoming a digital economy hub and will drive competitiveness and economic growth.

As part of its commitment to the region, Microsoft has pledged to train 2.5 million people in Southeast Asia in the use of AI by 2025.
