HTC-ITC, a subsidiary of Hanoi Telecom, is benefiting from Vietnam’s first Uptime TCCF TIER III-certified data center delivered by Delta.
Delta, a global leader in power and thermal management solutions, has announced the successful implementation of its energy-saving POD (Point of Delivery) data center solution to enable Vietnam’s first Uptime TCCF (Tier Certification of Constructed Facility) TIER III-certified data center for HTC-ITC, a subsidiary of Hanoi Telecom.
The TIER III certification by the US-based Uptime Institute entails an annual uptime of 99.982% for this newly-implemented data center.
This IT facility is also expected to achieve an eco-friendly high-efficiency-grade (1) annual power use effectiveness (PUE) value as low as 1.4 through the support of Delta’s uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems, in-row precision cooling, environmental monitoring platform, racks, accessories and the Data Center Infrastructure Monitoring (DCIM) system for comprehensive and remote control.
Madam Trinh Minh Chau, Chairwoman of HTC-ITC, expressed her delight in co-operating with Delta Electronics. Through its collaboration with Delta, HTC-ITC intended to build the best quality data center and provide world-class service to customers in Vietnam and around the world.
Victor Cheng, Delta’s Senior Vice President and General Manager of its Information Communication Technology Infrastructure Business Group, said: “We applaud the continuous efforts of HTC-ITC and its parent company Hanoi Telecom to facilitate next-generation ICT infrastructure for their customers in Vietnam.
“Being able to construct the country’s first Uptime TIER III-certified data center for HTC-ITC is truly an honor for Delta. Together with our partners and customers in the region, we are building the foundations of the 5G networks that will support substantial economic growth for years to come.”
HTC-ITC’s new data center, located in the Hoa Lac High-Tech Zone occupies 750 square meters and has a total power capacity of 750kW original requirement plus 750kW for redundant power protection, in line with Uptime’s TIER III 2N architecture specifications.
This data center is expandable to 900 racks in total. Delta’s highly modular and scalable POD data center solution provides the flexibility and reliability to achieve this rigorous qualification.
Unlike TIER I and TIER II, the Uptime TIER III Constructed Facility Certification (TCCF)-certified data centers do not allow shutdowns during maintenance or replacement. For example, in addition to the 99.982% annual uptime requirement, float voltage on the isolated equipment must be close to 0 while no hotspots with a temperature over 25°C are allowed.
The HTC-ITC’s data center has reached 52 tests to pass the TCCF certification, the first time ever for a data center built in Vietnam.
