Alibaba to Build Data Center in Vietnam, Enhances Local Services

Alibaba plans a new data center in Vietnam, enhancing local data compliance and service capabilities, with an estimated cost over $1 billion.

Alibaba plans to establish its own data center in Vietnam to meet the increasing local market demands, as reported by Nikkei Asia this month.

Citing Dang Minh Tam, a chief solutions architect at Alibaba Cloud, the move is aimed at complying with Vietnam’s 2022 data management laws that require local data to be stored domestically.

Currently, Alibaba hosts Vietnam’s user data in facilities operated by local firms and backs up some of that data in other Southeast Asian servers, responding to specific customer needs.

Alibaba already operates five cloud regions outside China in the Asia-Pacific, including early setups in Jakarta, Tokyo, and Singapore, and more recently in Seoul and Bangkok.

Dang Minh Tam highlighted Vietnam as a high-potential market with significant growth opportunities, motivating Alibaba to invest in a local data center. However, the executive declined to provide specific details on the project’s cost and timeline.

Japanese media estimates that the construction cost of Alibaba’s data center in Vietnam could exceed 1 billion USD.
