Vietnamese telco CMC Telecom is to launch a new data center in Ho Chi Minh City later this month.

Located in the CMC Creative Space complex of CMC Technology Group in the Tan Thuan manufacturing area, the new TÂN THUẬN data center will offer 10,000 sqm (107,600 sq ft) of data center space and capacity for 1,200 racks. The new facility has been Design certified Tier III by Uptime.

The complex, which has a total area of 13,133 sqm, began construction in December 2019 and was designed by B Barcelona Singapore. It is due to open in April 2022, having been pushed back slightly from March.

“Deploying DC Tan Thuan according to Uptime Tier III standards from the design stage is CMC Telecom’s commitment to perfecting the infrastructure according to international standards. From there, we bring you services with 5-star quality, security, and optimization in response to customers’ increasingly 'fastidious' demands in the digital age. Businesses have ordered more than 30 percent of the racks at Tan Thuan Data Center so far, despite the fact that the DC has not yet been officially launched,” said Dang Tung Son, DCEO/CMO of CMC Telecom.

Founded in 2008, the Hanoi-based company is jointly owned by Vietnamese ICT firm CMC Group and Malaysian telco Time dotcom. CMC Telecom now owns three data centers: Data Center CMC Tower (Hanoi, opened December 2017), Data Center SHTP (HCMC, opened 2012), and the new Data Center Tan Thuan.
