Viettel IDC agreed to terms with Fujitsu on July 19 in Ho Chi Minh City to introduce private cloud products that are created in Fujitsu’s server infrastructure.

Private cloud helps enterprises have independent sources and safe databases, while providing cost savings and optimizing system administration. Viettel IDC said that when leasing private cloud, enterprises can save at least 30 per cent of initial expenditures and from four to six weeks of time compared to investing in traditional models such as building hardware. Leasing private cloud also helps enterprises be more active in using and managing their IT systems.

“Fujitsu is one of the largest hosting providers in the world, so Viettel IDC believes that private cloud on Fujitsu’s infrastructure will be a good choice for enterprises,” said Mr. Nguyen Tien Dung, Director of Viettel IDC.

When leasing private cloud on Fujitsu’s infrastructure in the basic package, customers will also be provided with free public cloud or a Samsung Galaxy S8.

At the “Fourth Industrial Revolution: Fostering Digital Transformation with Could Computing” conference held on June 22 in Hanoi, Mr. Dung said that cloud computing is no longer just a trend, it is an obvious necessity. There are primarily two types of cloud computing customers: small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and State agencies.

The greatest concern among SMEs is cost, while for State agencies the greatest concern is security and privacy, but if SMEs want cloud computing that is cheap but efficient and with fast transmission they should use public cloud services, while private cloud services are more suitable for State agencies, he said.

Mr. Nguyen Dinh Thang, Vice President of the Vietnam Software and IT Services Association (Vinasa) said that cloud computing brings many benefits, such as standardizing products and services, reducing investment costs, saving time on developing products, improving services, and having a flexible business model.

He urged the government to adopt suitable policies to direct enterprises and organizations to have strategies in researching and investing in cloud computing to improve efficiency in business and manufacturing, which would help Vietnam stay abreast of the fourth industrial revolution.
