Dot VN Selects Danang City to Build Third Internet Data Center

Dot VN, a US-based internet and telecommunications company, has chosen Danang City, Vietnam, as the third site for developing its network of internet data centers.

The company plans to construct a purpose built data center building which will provide an estimated 2,000 square meters of data center space. According to the company, the Danang internet data centers (IDC) will not only serve the local businesses in Danang City and the surrounding provinces but will also serve as a disaster recovery site for its data centers in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.

The company also intends to open an office in Danang City outside of the Danang Industrial Zone that will manage the construction of the Danang City IDC; and capitalize on Danang City's market of internet users and businesses that will need to register domain names and utilize its related service offerings. The company expects the Danang City office to be fully staffed and operational by the end of 2008.

Thomas Johnson, chairman and CEO at Dot VN, said: "We are very pleased to have acquired this strategic property to expand our IDC network. With the three IDCs in development, Dot VN will ultimately establish a reliable and robust data network to effectively serve both individuals and businesses throughout Vietnam."
