NTT Comm Inaugurates 5th Data Center in Osaka

NTT Communications inaugurated its fifth data center in central Japan's Kansai Region.

The new Osaka 5 Data Center, which has a dedicated building comprising 11 floors, is the newest addition to NTT Com's Nexcenter data center service, which combines extensive disaster countermeasures and ideal network environments to enable NTT Com's customers to accelerate their business development with confidence and efficiency. The facility offers approximately 3,500 m2 of server room, equivalent to 1,600 racks.

NTT Communications said the new data center is designed to minimize the impact of any envisioned disaster in Osaka, including earthquake, tsunami or flood in the event of a major tremor in the Nankai Trough. In the unlikely event that water were to reach the data center, equipment would continue to operate safely because the electric power equipment, communication facilities, server rooms and other important facilities are located on the second floor or above, over seven meters above ground level. The building's seismic-isolation device, which lessens the impact of strong shaking by the earthquake, is installed on the post beneath the second floor to ensure that it would work properly if water were to enter the building's first floor. In addition seismic damper, which suppresses the vertical shaking by the epicentral earthquake, is also installed.
