ST Telemedia Global partners with VNG to boost Vietnam's data centres

ST Telemedia Global Data Centres (STT GDC) has announced a joint venture with VNG Corporation to develop, construct, and operate data centre projects in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. This strategic partnership aims to bolster Vietnam's digital infrastructure and support its burgeoning digital economy

The collaboration will see the continuation of operations at STT VNG Ho Chi Minh City 1, previously known as VNG Data Center, located in the Tan Thuan area. Additionally, the venture plans to establish a new facility, STT VNG Ho Chi Minh City 2, situated 1.5 km away within the same Tan Thuan cluster, which is expected to be operational by the first half of 2016.

Headquartered in Singapore, STT GDC is among the world's fastest-growing data

centre providers, offering colocation services through more than 95 data centres

across 20+ business markets. The partnership with VNG, a leading technology

company in Vietnam, aims to set new international data centre standards by

leveraging VNG's local expertise and engineering capabilities. 

STT VNG Ho Chi Minh City 1 is an Uptime Tier-3 rated facility with ISO 27001, ISO

27017, ISO 27018, and PCI-DSS certifications. It offers a total IT load capacity of 9.6

megawatts and is designed to meet global standards for various enterprise segments,

including local and international banks, financial institutions, and network service

providers. This facility also serves as Ho Chi Minh City's first carrier-neutral

connectivity hub, providing network coverage from major local telecommunication

operators and various services, including cloud access and disaster recovery.

The upcoming STT VNG Ho Chi Minh City 2 data centre will offer a development

potential of up to 60 megawatts of IT load capacity once fully constructed. It will be

interconnected with the first data centre via ample network infrastructure, enabling

smooth connectivity and expansion. The facility will be strategically positioned near

substations, critical telecommunications networks, and key logistical and business

hubs, providing seamless access to transportation links. 

Commenting on the partnership, Lionel Yeo, Chief Executive Officer, Southeast Asia, STT GDC, said, “We are thrilled to partner with VNG in our venture to build and

operate data centres in Vietnam. VNG's deep local knowledge, carrier neutrality, extensive customer and partner network, and commitment to technological

innovation align perfectly with STT GDC's vision. Together, we bring a unique blend of

global and local expertise to deliver a new international standard of data centre

solutions, supporting Vietnam's digital transformation journey.”

 Le Hong Minh, Founder and CEO of VNG Corporation, also expressed enthusiasm for

the venture, stating, “We believe our partnership with STT GDC, a globally recognised

leader in data centre operations, will set new service standards worldwide for

Vietnam's data centre industry and introduce our products and services to

international markets. Together, we are advancing the AI Cloud movement to support

both regional and local businesses, aligned with key trends in the digital economy.” 

Vietnam's digital economic growth is forecasted to grow 20% by 2025, nearly double

the projected GDP growth. This expansion is underpinned by a thriving digital

ecosystem, progressive government policies, increasing data consumption, enhanced

connectivity, and a commitment to modernising the nation's infrastructure. The

partnership between STT GDC and VNG is poised to play a crucial role in solidifying

Vietnam's position as an emerging digital powerhouse in Southeast A
