Myanmar-based broadband provider Burst Networks has ordered a multi-million dollar data centre from Flexenclosure.

The Danish infrastructure specialist is delivering its eCentre solution, a customised prefabricated modular data centre. The centre will be constructed in the Thilawa Special Economic Zone (SEZ) on the outskirts of Yangon and will be the first ever Tier 4 data centre in Myanmar.

The Uptime Institute’s Tier 4 classification is the data centre industry’s most stringent in terms of redundancy, fault tolerance and availability.  Tier 4 facilities are typically used to host mission critical systems.  All heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems are independently dual-powered for redundancy and their fully fault-tolerant site infrastructure gives an availability of 99.995%.

The full turnkey project includes civil works and installation of the eCentre, which will be deployed in Myanmar in early 2016. Burst Networks’ teleport will include the Tier IV data centre as well as a state of the art network operations centre connecting a hybrid network of local fibre and satellite infrastructure (supporting C-Band, Ku-Band and Ka-Band frequencies).

When commissioned and licensed to operate, the teleport will provide a robust, scalable, state-of-the-art nationwide network offering broadband services to enterprise, SME and third-party provider clients such as data connectivity, VPN, VoIP, video conferencing, network redundancy, data storage & recovery, co-location and hosting services.

“The Burst teleport will make infrastructure available to customers in key growth sectors – such as financial services, and mobile communications – that are critical to support their modernisation and expansion plans,” said Daniel Michener, CEO of Burst Networks.

Shalini Lagrutta, Regional Director, Asia, Flexenclosure, said: “Modular data centres are ideal for emerging markets like Myanmar, thanks to their speed of deployment, inherent flexibility and future agility.”
