Fujitsu-a Japan-based ICT company-yesterday (05 April 2016) commenced operations at its new facility, Annex C, at its Tatebayashi Data Centre.
According to the company, the facility will support hybrid clouds and offer robust security and resiliency to disasters.
The Annex C has an improved environmental performance by optimising the air conditioning systems, operating environment and the ICT equipment environment. Its new architectural structure and air conditioning method allow the new facility to maximise the use of natural convection for airflow, thus reducing the amount of electricity used for air conditioning and other equipment by approximately 60 percent.
In addition, the new Annex uses standard equipment for closed networks to enable connections with third-party clouds, thus providing fast support for hybrid cloud usage needs. It also has three types of server rooms:
- Standard rooms, which are high quality server rooms equivalent to Tier 3;
- Cloud rooms, which use new air conditioning methods and support high integration and high power supply capacity; and
- FISC-compliant rooms dedicated to customers in the financial services industry. These rooms use an electricity distribution system with an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) that is completely redundant with reliability that exceeds Tier 4 standards. Fujitsu said that the Annex is expected to receive certification that it complies with the FISC security standards from a certification organisation soon.
Fujitsu's Tatebayashi Data Centre serves as the company's core facility for its FUJITSU Digital Business Platform MetaArc, which supports the digital business of customers and helps to bring dynamism to the businesses of its customers.
