Vietnam is now a hotspot for the thriving industry, and all eyes are on how data centers meet official sustainability targets.

One of the top 10 emerging markets for global data center deployment is Vietnam, whose industry is forecast to grow at a compound annual growth rate of over 14.64% until 2026.

To keep up with the ever-increasing demand for applications and data services in Vietnam, CMC Technology Group’s Creative Space is planning to deploy new technology applications and provide large-scale ITC services in late 2021 to bring added value to customers and support Industry 4.0.

However, the real story behind data centers nowadays is the sustainability element. To that end, the data center has deployed advanced technology to maximize power efficiency and reliability for eco benefits.

According to Nguyen Thanh Luu, Head of Marketing and Communications, CMC Corporation, the growing data and digital needs to power Vietnam’s economic growth require ‘smart’ technology solutions to ensure the highest power quality needed for sophisticated data center needs: “The project will be completed ahead of schedule, bringing our ecosystem as well as added values to customers and partners.”

The Tier 3 international standard data center spreads over two office towers located in Ho Chi Minh City, the financial center of Vietnam. The supplier of the smart power systems is ABB, which are touted to maximize uptime while maintaining energy efficiency and power reliability.

Comprising advanced switchboard systems, low voltage switchgears, high-end circuit breakers and trip units, the power management installations allow the building operator to manage and monitor the status of devices remotely from anywhere, anytime, to ensure continuity of power, while reducing operation and maintenance cost, as a result of avoiding unexpected device failure.

ABB’s Regional Head of Data Center Solutions, Asia Pacific, said safeguarding power in one of the largest data centers in Vietnam requires “smart and sustainable power solutions” for handling bigger workloads faster, better and more efficiently while meeting global standards in electrification and sustainability.”
