NTT Communications is preparing to launch its state-of-the-art Osaka 7 Data Center (Osaka 7) on December 1.
NTT Communications will launch the Osaka 7 Data Center. With its 3,800m2 of server space capacity, Osaka 7 will be the largest in Japan’s Kansai region. The facility will eventually offer 9,500m2 and 4,200 racks. To minimize the impact of a powerful massive earthquake on buildings and customer equipment, Osaka 7 has a design with seismic-isolation.
Minimize the effect of seismic activities
The location of the data center was chosen from an area where flooding is uncommon and electric power during disasters will be assured thanks to direct connection to an adjacent substation. Osaka 7 in Ibaraki City will be just 30 minutes by public transportation from downtown Osaka and about one hour from Kyoto or Kobe. This easy access advantage is reducing the risk of disruption due to disasters such as floods or earthquakes. It will have a connection to NTT Com’s other data centers in the region by a high-capacity fiber ring.
From February 2020, with the start of Flexible InterConnect service, Osaka 7 customers can securely interconnect data centers and cloud services for unified management of access points, bandwidth, and security settings. According to NTT Communications, Japan’s data center business is growing steadily at around 7% per annum and the domestic colocation market was valued at around 540 billion JPY in 2018.
