Thailand’s WHA Infonite and MFEC ink data center deal

Thailand-based logistics, industrial estates, and utilities company WHA Infonite and IT services company MFEC Public Company Limited (MFEC) have signed a data center agreement, in a move that would benefit the data center ecosystem in the country.

As part of the deal, MFEC will be renting rack spaces in WHA’s Premium Data Center’s Security Operating Center (SOC). WHA, in turn, will be providing data center solutions to MFEC.

MFEC is specialising in network computing and e-business, serving mainly large enterprise customers and industry leaders.

This agreement will allow MFEC to expand its business further and offer maximum security to its customers.

“We are very pleased to start this partnership with MFEC,” said Mr. Kraitos Ongchaisak, Chief Executive Officer of WHA Infonite.

Ongchaisak pointed out that the company’s Tier III premium data center is the perfect match for MFEC’s specific requirements. The data centers are equipped with their own generators, UPS, cooling and fire suppression systems, and renewable energy sources.

“In today’s digital era, data is one of the most valuable resources for any business. Continuous and safe access to digital infrastructure is almost as important as access to electricity and other utilities,” said Ms. Jareeporn Jarukornsakul, WHA Group Chairman and Group Chief Executive Officer.

“With this agreement, we are glad to contribute to MFEC’s business expansion through the use of WHA’s world-class data centers,” she added.

The data center ecosystem is seeing a surge post the COVID-19 pandemic as businesses around the world are accelerating their digitalisation efforts. This can be attributed to social distancing norms and restrictions on travel.
