Vietnam’s Largest Data Centre in Hanoi High-Tech Park

The centre spans 23,000 square metres and is designed to house 2,000 racks. Using state-of-the-art equipment from renowned G7 manufacturers, it can provide impressive speeds, offering 2Gbps per rack for domestic connections and 0.5Gbps per rack for international connections.

VNPT IDC Hoa Lac is equipped with an N+1 backup system, guaranteeing stable operation, even during maintenance events. Additionally, its Data Hall features a 6-layer security monitoring system, adhering to international standards and ensuring the highest level of data safety for clients.

The centre has achieved Uptime Tier III Certification for Design Documents (TCDD) and the Constructed Facility (TCCF) and is also on track to obtaining the Certification of Operational Sustainability (TCOS) in the future.

VNPT currently runs eight data centres across the country, including in Hanoi, Da Nang, and Ho Chi Minh City. Each of these centres complies with rigorous domestic and international standards. “Our data centre in Hoa Lac is the largest and most advanced in the country and is poised to offer the nation’s premier data services, tailor-made to meet the diverse requirements of both domestic and international clients,” said Huynh Quang Liem, CEO of VNPT.

The human resources employed at this facility are highly trained professionals with extensive experience in the field. They offer round-the-clock customer support and stand ready to assist clients with package upgrades whenever necessary.

During the inauguration ceremony, the Minister of Information and Communications (MIC), Nguyen Manh Hung, emphasised the ministry’s focus on advancing Vietnam’s digital infrastructure. He underscored the importance of data infrastructure and urged telecom carriers to invest in this domain to create further opportunities for development.

Vietnam is experiencing a data growth rate that surpasses the global average. Presently, the country hosts 39 data centres, and to meet the increasing demands of the community, it needs to establish approximately 5 new centres annually, akin to VNPT IDC Hoa Lac.

Hung noted, “Digital infrastructure must be super-capacious, ultra-wideband, universally accessible, sustainable, smart, open, and secure. It’s essential to prioritise investment in modernisation to stay ahead in the digital transformation race. Data infrastructure is the cornerstone of digital infrastructure.”

Telecommunications companies that were formerly at the forefront of telecommunications infrastructure must now take the lead in data infrastructure. Investing in data centres presents a fresh growth opportunity for these operators. Without such investments, they face the risk of being replaced by others in the evolving digital landscape, he said.

Hung encouraged local businesses to prioritise Vietnamese cloud computing and data services, particularly given that domestic providers have met the most stringent global standards and are able to offer competitive pricing. For more cost-efficient and secure services, ministries, state agencies, and local authorities should choose professional data service units over trying to run their own ineffective data centres or IT systems. He also highlighted that this presents an opportunity for domestic data service providers to further their growth and professional development.

According to MIC, VNPT’s strategic move indicates a well-defined vision for bolstering the country’s telecommunications capabilities and marks a transition from conventional telecom services to more advanced data and digital services.
