Vietnam plugging $55M USD for domestic data center rollouts

Data Center Knowledge links to a story on data center rollouts in Vietnam:

Vietnamese technology company Quang Trung Software City (QTSC) and a U.S. company called DOT Vietnam have announced plans to build a $10 million data center in Ho Chi Minh City.

Some things that I’ve been wondering about with this data center are.

  • Cooling and humidity (Vietnam is a tropical country after all)
  • What companies will be using that data center once it is built.
  • What will the network capacity outbound & inbound from this data center will be
  • Price ranges for renting out a rack

I guess I’ll never know since this type of news will probably never get a follow-up article. Perhaps this is a good impetus to have a visit and see for myself what it will be like.

Just for contrast on budgets, M$ is plugging $500M USD to build a data center in Iowa.
