Fujitsu Opens New Facility at Its Tatebayashi Data Center

Annex C begins operations as a linchpin of support for the digital business of customers

TOKYO, Apr 5, 2016 - (ACN Newswire) - Fujitsu today announced that it has opened Annex C, a new facility at its Tatebayashi Data Center, and has today commenced operations there.

The newly opened annex, featuring optimized air conditioning systems and operating environment, meets Japan's highest environmental performance standards. Fujitsu built the facility with a particular focus on support for hybrid clouds, for which needs have increased in recent years, as well as for robust security and resiliency to disasters.

Fujitsu is using the Tatebayashi Data Center as the core facility for its FUJITSU Digital Business Platform MetaArc, which supports the digital business of customers, and is helping to bring greater dynamism to the businesses of its customers.

About the new Annex C facility at Tatebayashi Data Center

1. Improved environmental performance

By optimizing the air conditioning systems, operating environment, and the ICT equipment environment, the new annex increases the use of outside air for cooling to roughly 7,000 hours per year, from roughly 3,250 hours for previous data centers. In addition, Fujitsu developed a new architectural structure and air conditioning method that maximizes the use of natural convection for airflow, thereby reducing the amount of electricity used for air conditioning and other equipment by approximately 60%. It is designed to achieve power usage effectiveness (PUE)(1) of 1.20, the most efficient level in Japan.

2. Standard equipment for closed networks to support hybrid clouds

In addition to connections with other Fujitsu data centers throughout Japan and Fujitsu's cloud services, the new annex uses standard equipment for closed networks to enable connections with third-party clouds, thereby providing fast support for hybrid cloud usage needs.

3. Offers 3 types of server rooms to meet diverse needs

The new annex is equipped with three different types of server rooms to meet diverse customer needs, providing the optimal environment for different industries, businesses, and operational policies:

1. Standard rooms

These are high-quality server rooms equivalent to Tier(2)3.

2. Cloud rooms

For the exclusive use of clouds, these server rooms use new air conditioning methods and support high integration and high power supply capacity.

3. FISC-compliant rooms

For customers in the financial services industry, the new annex complies with the FISC security standards(3), and furthermore uses an electricity distribution system with an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) that is completely redundant with reliability that exceeds Tier 4 standards. (The annex is expected to receive certification that it complies with the FISC security standards from a certification organization.)

(1) Power usage effectiveness (PUE)

A measure of data center power efficiency. It is the ratio of the total amount of energy used by the datacenter to the amount used by its ICT equipment. The closer to 1.0 a data center PUE is, the more efficient it is.

(2) Tier

Data center facility standards set by the Japan Data Center Council (JDCC). When building a data center, these are the defined standards for achieving a certain level of reliability. The higher the tier number, the higher the reliability.

(3) FISC security standards

"Security Guidelines on Computer Systems for Banking and Related Financial Institutions" created by the Center for Financial Industry Information Systems (FISC).

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
