A groundbreaking ceremony was held in Hatxaykhao village yesterday as construction began for the LaoDC data center, the first licensed, privately owned data center in Laos.
The LaoDC data center will be one of the largest data centers in Laos, and will be able to host hardware as well as offering dedicated and virtual services.
“The aim of the data center is to offer international standards at a reasonable price that will be affordable for small to medium-sized and larger enterprises in Laos,” said LaoDC Director, Mr Derek Spranger.
“We will offer a range of IT services, including web and email hosting, as well as off-site data backup solutions, integrated business IT hosting, and on-site setups. Training and consulting will also be available,” he said.
The LaoDC data center will offer safe and secure hosting services that allow users in Laos to view websites much faster than those hosted overseas, with full local technical support.
The data center, built to international standards by local construction teams, will be ISO certified, and is to be backed up by emergency diesel generators. It will feature a solar plant to reduce environmental impact.
The LaoDC data center will use industry standard technology suppliers like APC, Cisco, DELL, Super Micro and Synology.
With over 30 years of combined industry experience in Sweden, Australia, and Thailand, LaoDC can provide customers with the most expert advice and solutions.
The data center is expected to be complete by February next year.
