VANTAGE TOWER, a property being developed by Myint & Associates Construction Company Ltd., will be completed in Q4 2015 and is set to be Myanmar’s most technologically advanced building. The building boasts the highest levels of security, safety, fire prevention and evacuation systems available in the market as well as the country’s first United States based Uptime Institute Tier III Certified Data Centre (M&A Data Centre), offering 90 racks of server co-location storage space and world-class support services. M&A Data Centre is located on the 6th floor of Tower B of the property.
“M&A Data Centre intends to host external clients as well as Vantage Tower tenants and is attracting a significant number of inquiries from telecommunication companies, financial institutions, government and co-location tenants,” says Hugo Slade, Managing Director of Slade Property Services, official property agent of Vantage Tower.
M&A Data Centre has been designed to ensure 99.98% operational time on an annual basis with maximum downtime of no more than 1.6 hours per year. “In a market such as Myanmar, it is very challenging to develop and execute a data centre design which ensures constant reliable power and facilities which include multi-homing internet connectivity,” said U Thein Soe Htaik, who is the Infra Team Leader and Head of the Data Centre team. “At Vantage Tower, we have installed 3 gen-sets, each of which is capable of providing 100% redundant back-up power. Three sources of UPS units utilizing Distributed Parallel Architecture, or DPA, eliminate downtime associated with the 30 second gen-set initialization period whereby back-up gen-sets also exist to ensure that M&A Data Centre and base building systems are continuously running,”he added.
M&A Data Centre is carrier neutral and also offers 3 back-bone fibre optic lines within the building and guarantees download speed capabilities depending on the subscribed package.
Vantage Tower, a 236,144 sq ft (21,938 sqm) GFA mixed-use building, is located on the intersection of Inya Road and Pyay Road over-looking the western edge of Inya Lake, Yangon’s most scenic area. The building will consist of two joined components; Tower A, an 18 storey mixed-use tower with two basement levels that will provide approximately 100,000 sq ft (9,290 sqm) of prime office accommodation, ground floor and 1st floor café and high-end restaurant facilities, and a spectacular penthouse on the 16th floor, and; Tower B, offering 90 racks of server co-location storage space and world-class support services, and a 6 level multi-storey car park that (along with 52 visitor car parking spaces in the 1st Basement Level) will hold 144 vehicles.
