Tencent Cloud opens internet data centers in Frankfurt, Bangkok, Hong Kong, Tokyo

Tencent Cloud has launched four new internet data centers (IDC) in Bangkok, Frankfurt, Hong Kong and Tokyo to expand their operations that now covers 27 regions and 66 availability zones worldwide.

The new additions include the second availability zones (AZ2) in Bangkok, Frankfurt and Tokyo and the third (AZ3) in Hong Kong.

Poshu Yeung, SVP of Tencent Cloud International, said the launch of the four new IDCs at the same time is a significant development in their strategy to rapidly and efficiently expand their international portfolio.

“We are also planning to have over 30% growth in terms of our IDCs all over the world by end of this year,” said Yeung.

The new IDCs are all tier-3 design facilities and are located in prime network hub locations, providing highly-reliable BGP integrated with major local and international network operators.

In late 2020, Tencent Cloud has opened its second availability zone in Korea, followed by the first IDC in Indonesia as well as the third availability zone in Singapore in April 2021. The company is set to launch its second Indonesian IDC and its first in Bahrain by the end of this year.
