HTC International Telecommunication Joint Stock Company (HTC-ITC) has officially put into operation its Eco Data Center in Hanoi-based Lang - Hoa Lac high-tech Park. This is the first data center in Vietnam that meets Uptime Tier 3 standards in both design and construction-operation.

Uptime Tier 3 is the 3rd level on the Uptime Institute's four-level scale for rating data centers.

To achieve this standard, a data center system must ensure uptime of 99.982% or more and downtime of not more than 1.6 hours per year.

In addition, this system must be capable of operating for up to 72 consecutive hours in case of a blackout.

To meet the strict standards of Uptime Institute, the Eco Data Center has all infrastructure equipment provided by two strategic partners, Delta and Arista.

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.
