Digital transformation on a Cloud platform that meets security regulations

According to the Vietnam Cybersecurity Law, both domestic and foreign enterprises operating in Vietnam that engage in activities related to collecting, storing, and processing user data in Vietnam are required to store this data in Vietnam.

VNG Cloud has two data centers located in Vietnam with over 10,000 servers nationwide. These data centers comply with stringent security and safety regulations, holding international certifications like ISO 27001, ISO 27017, ISO 27018, PCI DSS, as well as complying with the Vietnam Cybersecurity Law.

Using cloud services with data centers located in Vietnam offers several advantages for businesses. "Local providers have data centers and infrastructure located domestically. Therefore, the network connections will be more stable and cost-optimized compared to global providers. Global cloud providers that are offering services in Vietnam do not have data centers locally, so data processing or storage in the cloud has to go through international connections, resulting in higher costs and limited network quality," said Mr. Vu Minh Tri, CEO of VNG Cloud.

In addition, VNG Cloud has an advanced security system that protects the network layer with virtualized firewall (Security Group) for the cloud environment and safeguards the application layer with WAF (Web Application Firewall), preventing data breaches and malicious software activities.

The infrastructure of VNG Cloud also provides smart storage solution that automatically move data to different storage repositories based on access frequency, such as frequent access, infrequent access, and no access. When deployed on the cloud infrastructure, businesses can save up to 50% on operational and management costs compared to self-investment and on-premise infrastructure deployment.

True Cloud Technology

True Cloud technology allows businesses to automate their infrastructure with optimal costs. The expert team at VNG Cloud has developed and introduced new technologies that fully meet the needs of businesses, such as Auto Scaling and Load Balancing, providing flexible scalability when the system is overloaded, promptly meeting the businesses demands.

Furthermore, VNG Cloud provides the Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) solution, a comprehensive solution that allows the establishment of a virtual private cloud, enabling businesses to manage their system and network securely. For businesses with multiple branches or subsidiaries that need to utilize resources while guaranteeing performance and security, this cloud service supports VPC Peering, allowing the connection between 2 or more VPCs. In this case, the connected VPCs can communicate and exchange data through the internal network of VNG Cloud, minimizing latency and achieving higher performance compared to data transmission through the public network.

According to Mr. Vu Minh Tri, when Vietnamese businesses begin their digital transformation journey, most of them will face challenges in choosing the cloud provider that fully meet their requirements for modern technology and comply with network security and the Cybersecurity Law of Vietnam.

"The certification of 'Vietnam Secure Cloud Platform' awarded to VNG Cloud and other providers helps businesses address their essential needs and demonstrates the capabilities of local cloud providers, ready to serve businesses and accompany them in the national digital transformation process," Mr. Vu Minh Tri further shared.
