Taiwan-based power management solutions company Delta Electronics has completed the first Uptime certified green data center in Vietnam.
The data center took eight months to complete and is certified under the Uptime Institute’s Tier Certification of Constructed Facility (TCCF).
“The Delta team is honored to be the first solutions provider in Vietnam to build an Uptime 2N Tier III TCCF certified turnkey data center,” said Tony Meng, Country Manager for Delta Electronics in Vietnam.
The data center comprises 300 square meters of white space and 150 racks. In total, the facility will have a power capacity of 760kW, including a data hall of 750kW and 5kW in two POI rooms, plus 750kW for redundant protection.
To achieve its green certification, the data center leveraged its in-row cooling solution to pass the rigorous cooling isolation test as well as Delta’s modular data center design to enable efficient installation.
The green data center by Delta has a Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) value of 1.4, lower than other data centers in Vietnam and closer to the ideal 1.0 PUE.
Located in Hanoi’s Hoa Lac High Tech Park, the new Tier III green data center will serve organisations and businesses operating in Vietnam, both local and from overseas, and satisfy their need for a high level of service in terms of features, stability and information security.
“Vietnam is an important market in the Southeast Asian region and we will continue to strive to exceed customer expectations every time.” added Mr. Meng.
It’s first customer will be HTC-ITC, a subsidiary of Hanoi Telecom.
HTC-ITC is a telecommunications company specialising in infrastructure and transmission services with a nationwide fiber-optic network of almost 10,000 km in Vietnam and international connections.
“We are also glad to have the chance to work seamlessly with HTC-ITC for the honor of establishing Vietnam’s first TCCF certified data center,” said Mr. Meng.
The Uptime Institute’s Tier Certification System underlines industry standards that have to be met by businesses before constructing data centers. TCCF is the final stage of the certification process, and it involves on-site visits by Uptime Institute consultants and live system demonstrations.
Delta passed 52 test items to obtain the TCCF Certification. Each test item isolated equipment to prove zero impact to the normal data center operations.
Float voltage on the isolated equipment must be close to 0, which requires excellent power cable management, with properly balanced load and grounding.
For cooling, there must be no hotspots with temperature exceeding 25 degrees Celsius, which requires a detailed simulation of the cooling unit arrangement.
Despite potential power problems in Vietnam, Tier III data centers must have a 99.982% uptime per year. Unlike Tier I and Tier II, these facilities require no shutdowns when equipment needs maintenance or replacement.
