Chiang Mai , Thailand (TH01)
Chiang Mai, a thriving hub for game developers, special effects artists, and digital content creators, has the potential to become the epicenter of digital creativity in Southeast Asia.
However, the computationally intensive tasks of video rendering and effects design pose challenges due to the lack of data centers and digital infrastructure outside of Bangkok. As a result, developers in Chiang Mai often face the burden of maintaining a presence in Bangkok, hindering the growth of the local ecosystem and incurring inefficiencies and high costs.
To address this issue, Edgeworks is revolutionizing the digital landscape in Chiang Mai by deploying an Edgeworks Pod site equipped with direct fiber connections to cloud onramps in Bangkok. This strategic move brings the power of edge computing to the underserved northern region of Thailand. Now, visual effects creators, game developers, and digital artists in Chiang Mai can access ultra-low latency and high-capacity compute power precisely where they need it, unlocking new possibilities for the local game development and visual effects industries.
