Thailand’s cloud and data center market could be on the verge of greatness. As the second-largest economy in ASEAN continues to improve its international connectivity, multinational companies are eyeing it for investment. But as these improvements are made and more of the population goes online, broadband quality and energy sustainability become increasingly pressing challenges for the market to overcome. 

Moves are being made by ST Telemedia Global Data Centres, Amazon Web Services, Halliburton, and Orient Link/NEC Corporation to strengthen connectivity and enable digital transformation in the country. 

Support for a digital future is also coming from the Thai Government with a $146.6 million Government Data Center & Cloud (GDCC), owned and operated by the state. However, creating a flexible regulatory landscape and prioritising the market dominance of tech giants over smaller, local startups might slow down the country’s digital economy. 

With 61% of Thailand’s gross domestic product expected to be digitalised by 2022, and 95% of the population with broadband access by 2023, this market is quickly becoming one of the most interesting case studies in the region. 

Join the W.Media team at our Thailand Cloud and Datacenter Digital Summit to find out how you can be a part of the country’s digital future.. 

ตลาดดาต้าเซ็นเตอร์ และ คลาวด์ในประเทศไทยได้มีการเติบโตขึ้นเรื่อยๆ ณ ปัจจุบันนี้ประเทศไทยถือว่าเป็นเขตเศรษฐขนาดใหญ่อันดับ 2 ของภูมิภาค ASEAN จึงทำให้บริษัทจากทั่วโลกอยากเข้ามาลงทุนในประเทศ เมื่อการร่วมงานกับบริษัทข้ามประเทศเพิ่มขึ้นอย่างสูง

การใช้งานฯบนอินเตอร์เน็ตก็เพิ่มสูงขึ้นอย่างก้าวกระโดด คุณภาพการบริการอินเตอร์เน็ตความเร็วสูง (broadband quality) และ การใช้พลังงานที่ยั่งยืนโดยไม่ทำลายสิ่งแวดล้อม(energy sustainability) ก็กลายเป็นสิ่งผู้คนในตลาดนี้ต้องตั้งรับและปรับตัวตลอดเวลา

โดยจากการประชุมคณะรัฐมนตรีเมื่อวันที่ 5 พฤษภาคม 2563 ครมได้มีมติเห็นชอบ โครงการพัฒนาระบบคลาวด์กลางภาครัฐ (Government Data Center and Cloud Services : GDCC) ตามที่กระทรวงดิจิทัลเพื่อเศรษฐกิจและสังคม (ดศ.) เสนอ โดยมีกรอบวงเงินในการดำเนินการรวมทั้งสิ้น 4,073.069 ล้านบาท แต่อย่างไรก็ตามการเปลี่ยนแปลงครั้งนี้ทำให้เกิดการผูกขาดทางการค้ากับบริษัทยักษ์ใหญ่ ทำให้บริษัทเล็กๆหรือ บริษัท stratups ทั้งหลายอาจจะทำให้การเติบโตของ เศรษฐกิจดิจิทัล (Digital Economy) ชะลอลงได้

บริษัทยักษ์ใหญ่ที่เป็นส่วนในการขับเคลื่อนและพัฒนาให้ประเทศไทยเดินเข้าสู่สังคมดิจิตอล ได้แก่ ST Telemedia Global Data CentresAmazon Web ServicesHalliburton, and Orient Link/NEC Corporation
