Vietnam has five data center systems meeting Uptime Tier 3 standards, but this is the first time a data center in Vietnam has met Uptime Tier 3 standards in both design and construction.
The data center uses an in-row cooling system. This is the first unit in Vietnam using this energy saving technology, which can control the cooling temperature of each server.
This data center costs about VND100 billion (nearly $5 million). The system has been completed with 6 box-type data centers, with a total of 150 racks. The EcoDC will officially start operating in April.
Speaking at this event, Deputy Minister of Information and Communications Nguyen Huy Dung said that the launch of the EcoDC data center is a steady step in the process of digital transformation in Vietnam.
In the National Digital Transformation program, the Ministry of Information and Communications determined that Vietnam must develop digital infrastructure, including broadband telecommunications infrastructure, cloud computing, and electronic identification and authentication. Vietnam is also realizing the goal that each citizen must have a smartphone, and each household an Internet fiber optic cable connection.
The most fundamental differences between telecom and digital infrastructure are data centers and cloud computing platforms that make IT a service accessible to everyone.
