Delta completes Vietnam’s first Uptime certified green data center

Taiwan-based power management solutions company Delta Electronics has completed Vietnam’s first Uptime certified green data center. 

The data center took eight months to complete and is certified under the Uptime Institute’s Tier Certification of Constructed Facility (TCCF).

“The Delta team is honored to be the first solutions provider in Vietnam to build an Uptime 2N Tier III TCCF certified turnkey data center,” said Tony Meng, Country Manager for Delta Electronics in Vietnam.

The data center comprises 300 square meters of white space, 150 racks and a power capacity of 750kW, plus 750kW of redundant protection.

To achieve its green certification, the data center leveraged its in-row cooling solution to pass the rigorous cooling isolation test as well as Delta’s modular data center design to enable efficient installation.

The green data center has a Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) value of 1.4, lower than other data centers in Vietnam and closer to the industry standard of 1.0.

Located in Hanoi’s Hoa Lac High Tech Park, the new Tier III green data center will serve organisations and businesses operating in Vietnam, both local and from overseas, and satisfy their need for a high level of service in terms of features, stability and information security.

“Vietnam is an important market in the Southeast Asian region and we will continue to strive to exceed customer expectations every time.” added Mr. Meng.

It’s first customer will be HTC-ITC, a subsidiary of Hanoi Telecom.

HTC-ITC is a telecommunications company specialising in infrastructure and transmission services with a nationwide fiber-optic network of almost 10,000 km in Vietnam and international connections. 

“We are also glad to have the chance to work seamlessly with HTC-ITC for the honor of establishing Vietnam’s first TCCF certified data center,” said Mr. Meng.

The Uptime Institute’s Tier Certification System underlines industry standards that have to be met by businesses before constructing data centers. TCCF is the final stage of the certification process, and it involves on-site visits by Uptime Institute consultants and live system demonstrations. 

Delta passed 52 test items to obtain the TCCF Certification. Each test item isolated equipment to prove zero impact to the normal data center operations. 

Float voltage on the isolated equipment must be close to 0, which requires excellent power cable management, with properly balanced load and grounding. 

For cooling, there must be no hotspots with temperature exceeding 25 degrees Celsius, which requires a detailed simulation of the cooling unit arrangement.

Despite potential power problems in Vietnam, Tier III data centers must have a 99.982% uptime per year. Unlike Tier I and Tier II, these facilities require no shutdowns when equipment needs maintenance or replacement.

Delta recently also received Uptime Institute’s TIER III-Ready Award for their Point of Delivery data center solution and are striving to bring efficient power solutions to Southeast Asia.

CrowdStrike Survey: Majority of businesses in Thailand see cybersecurity as top priority

US-based cybersecurity company CrowdStrike revealed nearly 80% of business leaders in Thailand view cybersecurity as the top priority in recovering after the COVID-19 pandemic.

Conducted between May and June, the 2020 Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ) State of Security Report surveyed over 2,000 respondents from Japan and Asia Pacfic, aiming to explore how COVID-19 has impacted their cybersecurity measures.

“The pandemic may have had the biggest impact on the way organisations operate since the introduction of office PCs, said Andrew Littleproud, the Vice President for APJ at CrowdStrike.

CrowdStrike uncovered an increase in electronic crime activity, with an increase of more than 330% since the start of 2020, compared with the same period in 2019.

According to the report, 63% of business leaders in Thailand consider cyberattacks to be one of the top threats to their business operations over the next six months. The other two threats are compounding economic conditions (79%) and potential new waves of COVID-19 infections (65%).

However, despite the level of concern, many businesses in Thailand are not equipped for dealing with cyberattacks. The survey found that 30% of businesses have yet to upgrade their IT infrastructure to accommodate remote employees, leaving them exposed to cyberthreats as they work from home.

“The reaction of business leaders has been impressive, but the speed and size of change to a remote workforce has led to some inevitable gaps, particularly in the cybersecurity of organisations,” added Mr. Littleproud.

25% of respondents in Thailand also stated they have yet to be informed of COVID-19 malware-related attacks, and 14% have not received additional cybersecurity training.

The report continued that remote working will present more cybersecurity challenges in the next 18 months, the top challenges being new regulations surrounding remote work (68%), the costs of compliance (62%) legacy infrastructure (58%), managing a remote workforce (57%) and potential limited budget (56%).

“Remote work is expected to continue for some time and we might not even return to the past of having employees in the office for the entire workweek. Organisations must therefore update their cybersecurity policies to factor in remote or hybrid working,” continued Mr. Littleproud.

To mitigate the cybersecurity challenges, 86% of local business leaders said they planned on additional security training in the future.

“In the new business normal, it will be vital to implement solutions that can be quickly deployed at scale to detect new threats, adhere to new regulations, and leverage the cloud so they can be easily managed remotely,” recommended Mr. Littleproud.

Elsewhere in Asia Pacific, CloudStrike also found that almost 9 out of 10 business leaders in the Philippines saw cybersecurity as a priority, with 76% of local business leaders seeing the need to raise cybersecurity software investment over the next six months.

“Keeping employees educated on cyberthreats brought about by remote or hybrid working situations and educating them on cyber hygiene are important for minimising exposure,” said Sherif El Nabawi, CrowdStrike’s Vice President of Engineering for Asia Pacific and Japan.

But, the worrying trend of a lack of preparedness continues, as the report found that 37% have not revamped security programs, 22% of local business leaders do not know what to do in the event of a data breach, and 40% have not received additional security training, making organisations vulnerable to new and more sophisticated cyberattacks.

South Korea’s Penta Security enters Indonesia market, signs deal with top tech distributor

South Korean cybersecurity company Penta Security has entered the Indonesia market by signing a deal with the country’s top tech distributor for IT security products and solution, PT. Prospera Aswindra Teknologi.

The distribution agreement comes at a time when Indonesia is undergoing major digital transformation efforts, which opens up the country to greater cybersecurity challenges.

With the growing challenges, Indonesia is seeing a high demand for cybersecurity solutions, as  governments and businesses face a growing number of cyber threats.

Anyone for WAPPLES?

Founded in 1997, Penta Security offers a wide range of cybersecurity protection solutions to organisations in the Asia Pacific. 

Its flagship product, WAPPLES, is a web application firewall that utilises a logic-based detection engine known as COCEP (Contents Classification and Evaluation Processing), to guard against sensitive data leakage, malicious cyberthreats and website defacement.

PT. Prospera Aswindra Teknologi has chosen WAPPLES to protect its web applications from cyberattacks.

“Our priority is to focus on staying ahead of the attacks whilst letting our users operate their businesses in the safest environment,” said DS Kim, the Chief Strategy Officer of Penta Security.

WAPPLES comes in both hardware and software, optimised for cloud platforms.

“To overcome the increased sophistication of web attacks, WAPPLES’ rule-based COCEP engine operates more logically and efficiently than existing WAFs in the market,” added Mr. Kim.

In July, Indonesia pushed ahead with a data protection law, which will make it illegal to collect consumer data without permission, requiring businesses to alert customers within days of knowing that their names, email and other information had been breached.

FPT Software shines for Vietnam by winning big international awards

FPT Software is shining for Vietnam after winning big at two international digital award ceremonies by OutSystems and the Stevie Awards

Vietnam’s largest IT company was named by OutSystems, a global low-code applications leader, as its 2020 ‘Rising Star’ Partner of the Year in Asia Pacific. And the company’s digital solutions also won top places at the International Business Awards.

OutSystems 2020 Partner of the Year

FPT Software and OutSystems began their partnership in late 2019 to develop low-code platforms. Since then, the company has become OutSystems’ largest partner in the Asia Pacific region. 

In May, FPT Software worked together with OutSystems to provide a range of low-coding services in Japan, strengthening OutSystems’ market presence in the country.

“These results show that an investment in people, digital skills, and technological capabilities is always rewarding. We are committed to leveraging digital technologies to bring more value to our customers and partners”, said Tran Dang Hoa, Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Operation Officer of FPT Software.

Low-coding is a software development approach that utilises graphical interface to create applications. Compared to traditional coding where codes are manually formulated, low-coding saves time and energy.

According to research firm Gartner, low-code application development will be responsible for more than 65% of the world’s app development activity, and Asia Pacific is projected to experience the fastest growth.

“In a world where speed and agility have become increasingly imperative, low-code applications will be the answer. We are proud that our collaboration with OutSystems has made this emerging software development approach more accessible to businesses in the region, thus accelerating their digital transformation journey,” added Mr. Tran.

In total, OutSystems honored more than 20 top-performing partners.

“Our partners are an essential part of the OutSystems team because our customers rely on their expertise for both strategy and execution,” explained Peter Dunlap, the VP Channels and Alliances at OutSystems.

To put FPT Software’s significant success in perspective, the company only partnered with OutSystems in May to develop low-code platforms for Japan.

FPT Software wins big at the International Business Awards

FPT Software also won big at the International Business Awards, taking Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie awards in the Business Technology Solution categories.

The winners were selected from more than 3,800 nominations from organisations in 63 different countries and territories.

“Despite the unprecedented impact the COVID-19 pandemic, the number and quality of nominations we received attests to the continued outstanding performance of many organisations,” said Stevie Awards president Maggie Gallagher.

Launched in 2004, the International Business Awards is among the eight programs of the Stevie Awards, which are considered the ‘Oscars of the business world’.

FPT Software won a Gold Stevie in the Blockchain Solution category for their akaChain platform, a Silver Stevie for its manufacturing platform akaMES, and a Bronze Stevie for their akaBot, a comprehensive Robotic Processing Automation (RPA) solution.

“Whether it is Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence, RPA, we are committed to leveraging the top-notch digital technologies to help our worldwide customers achieve operational excellence and create new business models at speed,” said Mr. Tran Dang Hoa.

With a presence in nearly 20 countries worldwide, FPT Software looks to attribute half of its global revenue to digital transformation services by 2025.

In July, the award-winning trio of solutions by FPT Software also competed against more than 1,000 nominations from 29 countries in the Asia Pacific region, winning two Gold and one Silver awards at the 7th Asia Pacific Stevie Awards.

Singapore’s Figtree makes first data center investment with stake in DC Alliance

Singapore-listed Figtree has made its first strategic investment in the data center market by taking a 27.5% stake in DC Alliance, a data center owner-operator with a facility in Australia.

The provider of commercial and industrial real estate solutions paid US$2.011 million (A$2.75 million) in cash, with the aim of tapping into Australia’s multi-billion dollar data center market.

”We believe this positions Figtree well to ride on the vibrant demand for data centers in Australia, which is on the rise due to growing trends in cloud adoption, demand for smart devices as well as wireless networking technologies,” said Danny Siaw, the Managing Director of Figtree.

As part of this investment, Figtree now owns a stake in DC Alliance’s ready-for-service Tier III colocation data center in Perth’s Canning Vale industrial area.

The four-year-old data center spans 2,200 square meters, with a capacity of 1,000 racks and up to 8 MW of power.

The data center is the only one of its kind south of Perth’s Central Business District.

“Perth [is] a growing regional innovation hub due to its new high speed, high capacity undersea data cables that link it to Asia,” said Mr. Siaw.

Figtree will leverage DC Alliance’s experience in designing and building data centers to step up the value chain and broaden their recurring income base.

This landmark deal is also said to reinforce the vision of DC Alliance, a Singaporean brand with operations mainly located internationally, to be the leader in the Asia Pacific data center landscape.

“With its complementary skills in real estate across Asia Pacific, there is a lot of synergy among the two companies to accelerate our growth,” said Roy Wong, the Executive Chairman of DC Alliance.

Through its wholly-owned subsidiary DCA 1, DC Alliance acquired Pier DC, a Western Australian company that designs, builds, and operates Tier-certified data centers in Australia and the Asia Pacific region In September 2020.

Pier DC owns and operates the previously mentioned Perth-based data center, and is also a GovNext-ICT programme approved member with most of its existing customers mainly from the government segment.

Supported by Figtree, DC Alliance intends to expand the capacity of the data center as well as provide amenities like a Business Continuity space, which is highly relevant in today’s uncertain environment.

As part of the deal, Figtree will also be granted a board seat at DC Alliance, bringing its experience as developer, contractor and provider of design, project and construction management consulting services across Singapore, Malaysia, China and Australia.

Australia’s data center market is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 3.4% to reach US$4.3 million (A$6 billion) between 2020 and 2025, which will likely be driven by the fact that over 90% of SMEs in Australia are expected to operate via the cloud, and over 80% of medium-sized and large data centers will be outsourcing their data center operations by 2023. 

Australia is also among the top five countries in the world to implement government policies and regulations for cloud adoption, which drives data center investments in the country. Perth is ranked third behind Sydney and Melbourne in terms of data center investments.

US Department of Justice press charges against five Chinese, two Malaysians for cybersecurity hacks

US Department of Justice press charges against five Chinese, two Malaysians for cybersecurity hacks

US Department of Justice press charges against five Chinese, two Malaysians for cybersecurity hacks

The United States Department of Justice (DoJ) announced it will press charges against five Chinese nationals and two Malaysian nationals over global hacking operations.

Over the course of six years, the seven threat actors hacked hundreds of organisations around the world to steal confidential information, hijack user identity, install ransomware and “crypto-jack”, which involves using the victim’s computers to mine cryptocurrency.

In August 2019 and August 2020, a federal grand jury in Washington, D.C., returned three separate indictments. All indictments charged Chinese nationals Zhang Haoran, Tan Dailin, Jiang Lizhi, Qian Chuan, and Fu Qiang as well as Malaysian nationals Wong Ong Hua, and Ling Yang Ching with similar counts of  conspiracy, fraud, aggravated identity theft, money laundering, and violations of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act.

According to the DoJ, the five Chinese hackers also collected information on Hong Kong’s pro-democracy movement.

“The scope and sophistication of the crimes in these unsealed indictments is unprecedented. The alleged criminal scheme used actors in China and Malaysia to illegally hack, intrude and steal information from victims worldwide,” said Michael R. Sherwin, the Acting US Attorney for the District of Columbia.

The Malaysian hackers conspired with two of the Chinese hackers to hijack and make profit from the video game industry in countries including Singapore, Japan, South Korea, France and the US. The perpetrators hacked video game companies, stole secrets and generated digital items of value on the video game like rare items found in the game, and then sold the items for profit.

All five of the Chinese nationals are reported to be fugitives in mainland China, but their exact whereabouts are unknown. Both Malaysians were arrested in Sitiawan, a town in Malaysia’s state of Perak.

In addition the the arrest warrants, the US District Court for the District of Columbia issued seizure warrants that resulted in the recent seizure of hundreds of accounts, servers, domain names, and command-and-control (C2”) “dead drop” web pages used by the defendants

“Today’s charges, the related arrests, seizures of malware and other infrastructure used to conduct intrusions, and coordinated private sector protective actions reveal yet again the Department’s determination to use all of the tools at its disposal and to collaborate with the private sector and nations who support the rule of law in cyberspace,” said Assistant Attorney General John C. Demers.

The DoJ is currently working with the Attorney General of Malaysia and the Royal Malaysia Police to seek extradition.

“This is the only way to neutralize malicious nation state cyber activity,” Mr. Demers added.

If indicted on all counts, the hackers could face more than 20 years in prison.

Microsoft, Google, Facebook, and Verizon Media provided assistance in the DoJ’s investigation. The actions by Microsoft were said to be a significant part of the overall effort to deny the defendants continued access to hacking infrastructure, tools, accounts, and command and control domain names.

Opinion: Resilience Through Uncharted Waters in the ‘new normal’

What is the importance of digitally pivoting at a time of crisis? And is the switch to an OPEX model inevitable? Read on for insights from Levent Tavsanci, the Head of Applications at Oracle in Singapore.

The ongoing economic and humanitarian crisis has caught everyone off guard. The global lockdown in some of the largest economies has led to an unforeseen break in economic activity. While governments are taking cautious steps with gradual lifting of lockdowns, we are confronted with a new normal. Over the next few months, we will witness the unveiling of this new normal and its impact on businesses. However, one thing is clear, the new normal is going to be far more digital, it’s going to elevate individuals’ and corporations’ transacting models to higher levels of automation and connectivity.

The territory ahead is uncharted, so it becomes imperative for organisations to understand and develop ways to create value out of every organisational function. Expertise and acquired skills can help alleviate risks and rebuild efforts for businesses and communities alike. At the same time, the situation presents a significant opportunity for companies to: rethink and reconsider; to challenge conventional thinking; to encourage innovation and creativity. All businesses rely on the effectiveness of their Business Continuity Plan (BCP) to maintain essential functions during and after any crisis situation. If an organisation does not have one, it is time to go back to the drawing board.

Rebuilding foundations for the future

I have been talking to many of our customers over the last few months and have observed that now, more than ever, organisations are realising the need for a strong digital foundation. They are reimagining business resiliency and fine-tuning business continuity plans based on strong foundations provided by new-age digital technologies. Businesses are progressively looking to new frontiers such as cloud and artificial intelligence to ensure business continuity. 

Take for instance, Beyonics, a leading global precision manufacturer, found monthly financial consolidations and reporting, manually undertaken, becoming increasingly laborious. The lack of financial and operational analytics was getting in the way of truly effective business decision making; putting the company in the position of reacting to information, rather than proacting to events, trends, and external influences, to drive the business forward continuously. 

To alleviate this, Beyonics embarked on a business transformation program to adopt Oracle Cloud as a core driver in both its digital transformation and its pursuance of an Industry 4.0 operational strategy. Oracle Cloud ERP provides the organisation with real-time knowledge of its financial, operational, and competitive position at any one time, and continuously.

Gearing up for success

The current reality that organisations are facing makes it an opportune time for them to take a pragmatic view of their IT infrastructure and assess whether they have built a resilient business model that can quickly adapt to future disruptions. Switching to an OPEX model is inevitable, leading to increased usage of cloud-based services. Consumer demand for digital solutions has never been greater, however with the overall transaction volume low, the opportunity to build improved digital platforms has never been greater.

Nonetheless, before fast-tracking their digital transformation, business leaders need to take a step back and re-evaluate their roadmaps and beliefs about their underlying value and feasibility. These evaluations need to be based on current and still emerging customer behaviours, supplier dynamics, and industry regulations. According to a recent McKinsey study, digital interaction with B2B customers is now two times more important than traditional channels—more than a 30% jump since before the crisis. 

In conclusion, I’d like to leave this thought – the future is unknown, but not dark. We have seen some remarkable instances of human resilience over the past few months. Amidst us are visionaries who are finding ways through data analytics and automation, to use new types and sources of data to generate value. Recovery may still be out of sight, but it will come and businesses who will be best prepared for this digital future will have the best chance for not just survival, but a brighter future.

Equinix reaches milestone on ransomware attack investigation

Equinix announced they have reached a milestone in their investigations of a ransomware attack that affected their internal systems.

“Our containment and mitigation efforts have progressed well since the detection of the incident,” said Equinix in a statement.

The world’s largest data center and colocation provider believes they have prevented the release of any data associated with the incident.

“Our data centers and services to customers have not been impacted by the incident and our internal systems are rapidly approaching full restoration,” added Equinix.

Equinix suffered the ransomware attack on Wednesday 9 September.

Their teams took immediate action to address the cyberattack by contacting law enforcement.

Since then, the data center provider has made daily investigation updates, which has currently found no customers’ operations or data on their equipment.

As most of their customers operate their own equipment within Equinix data centers, this attack is said to have had no impact on equipment or data.

“The security of the data in our systems is always a top priority and we intend to take all necessary actions, as appropriate, based on the results of our investigation,” the statement reported.

Equinix has promised to provide any more updates as it becomes available.

Earlier this month, cybersecurity specialists Trend Micro revealed your on-premise and cloud servers could be compromised by criminals using cryptocurrency mining software.

And while your servers are sitting idle, criminals may be monetising your assets whilst plotting larger money-making schemes like extracting valuable data, selling server access for further abuse or preparing dangerous ransomware attacks.

Microsoft’s underwater data center: what does it mean for the data center industry?

Microsoft’s underwater data center: what does it mean for the data center industry?

By | News
Malaysia Digital Summit

Microsoft’s underwater data center: what does it mean for the data center industry?

We’ve conquered lands and reached for the skies, so why not an underwater data center?

That was probably what went through Microsoft’s Sean James’ mind when he conceived the idea of underwater data centers in the company’s 2014 ThinkWeek, an event where Microsoft employees gather to share fresh, unconventional ideas. 

Fast forward six years, Microsoft has just fished out 864 servers from its underwater data center, 117 feet under the sea.

As the world becomes more digitally connected than ever before, the search for more space to house data centers seems like an inevitability. The sky is literally the limit if you want to build a data center on land, and land scarcity is already a long-existing problem. 

On the other hand, the Earth is 71% water, which presents a gold mine of opportunities to build data centers off-land. 

Data centers heat up fast, so deep ocean water could function as a free cooling system, allowing them to be more energy-efficient. With that, Microsoft launched Project Natick, which consisted of two phases.

In Phase 1, from August to November 2015, Microsoft sank a data center one kilometre off the coast of California to test the feasibility of this project. Long story short, the plan was feasible.

In Phase 2, May 2018, a vessel sealed with data center servers was dunked deep under the seabed of Scotland’s Orkney Islands. The vessel’s construction, from factory to deployment, took less than 90 days. Two years later, in September 2020, the vessel was hauled onshore and the data center was retrieved.

Encouraging findings

Aside from algae and barnacles, the research team at Microsoft found that only eight of 864 underwater data center servers malfunctioned. This is a failure rate that is one-eighth of that on land.

“We were pretty impressed with how clean it was. It did not have a lot of hardened marine growth on it; it was mostly sea scum,” said Spencer Fowers, a Principal Member of Technical Staff for Microsoft’s Special Projects Research Group.

The vessels were pumped with nitrogen beforehand and because of this, the underwater data center also proved to be more durable than its on-land data centers, as oxygen changes the humidity and fluctuates temperatures on-land, which quickens the debilitation of data centers stored in buildings. The increased durability ultimately means lower maintenance costs for data center operators, and the total cost of ownership for customers by extension.

“We are populating the globe with edge devices, large and small. To learn how to make data centers reliable enough not to need human touch is a dream of ours,” said William Chappell, the Vice President of Mission Systems for Microsoft Azure.

In short, placing data centers underwater is logistically, economically and environmentally practical.

How might an underwater data center impact the environment?

The lessons learnt from Project Natick informed Microsoft’s data center sustainability strategy around energy, waste and water, said Ben Cutler, a project manager in Microsoft’s Special Projects research group who leads Project Natick.

But what was left behind Orkney after retrieving the vessel? Microsoft is proud to report that the sea bed is being restored to the same state it was before deployment. And to remain environmentally friendly, the data center’s components, including its steel vessel and heat exchangers, will also be recycled.

Project Natick is a real-life case of how we are able to use what we have to carve out a more sustainable future. If all data centers eventually go under the deep blue sea, governments may be able to repurpose used land. 

As optimistic as Project Natick may be, a few questions linger. 

The long-term impacts of underwater data centers is not yet known. Microsoft expects its underwater data centers to survive for five years before needing any maintenance or replacement work. While this is a commendable length, the costs involved are not yet known.

And what happens if all data centers on Earth go underwater? Will it affect the temperature of the ocean? That, too, is not yet known.

This does not mean that there is no cause for a mini celebration. 

At this point, you might be wondering what kind of information Natick’s data centers were processing whilst under water. Turns out, they were actually helping to develop a vaccine for COVID-19. 

When the pandemic broke out in Europe, the data centers were re-tasked to provide support for global distributed computing group Folding At Home. The data centers helped the organisations process information that would help in understanding the viral proteins that cause the virus, and design therapeutics to stop them.

Before the pandemic, Natick helped IBM-sponsored World Community Grid in ‘big science problems’ research, including finding ways to detect and treat cancer.

Microsoft’s Project Natick offers us a glimpse into what is possible when we have a vision to do better. Hopefully in the near future, we will be able to accomplish more with less.

“The fact that they were very quickly able to deploy it and it has worked as long as it has and it has the level of encryption on the signals going to it combines to tell a pretty compelling vision of the future,” Mr. Chappell said.

Digital hubs facing land scarcity may benefit: a look at Singapore

This impressive result could be immensely beneficial to land sparse countries such as Singapore.

A country where you could drive from the East to the West in an hour and a population of nearly 6 million, maximising land usage is constantly at the forefront of many of Singapore’s major policy decisions. 

As Zoom, Tencent, and ByteDance expand their operations in Singapore, the country is experiencing unprecedented growth as Southeast Asia’s digital hub, which might require even more data centers.

Major tech players such as Equinix and Google have been building their data centers upwards rather than out, but adding more high-rise buildings to an island that is already packed with skyscrapers would soon prove to be an infeasible effort.

To solve this dilemma, it’s not just Microsoft who has been looking to the sea. Keppel Data Centres recently sealed a deal with Singapore to plan a floating data center park, using the surrounding sea water as a cooling system.

As Singapore is surrounded by the South China Sea, part of this deal bears some similarity with the underwater data center project, so diving underwater might just be the next best step.

NTT Communications launches Tokyo 11th Data Center

NTT Communications Corporation has announced it will launch their Tokyo 11th Data Center on September 18 2020.

Located in Musashino,Tokyo, NTT Com will expand their data center supply with a server room spanning 6,250 square meters, containing 2,600 racks and a power capacity of 21 MW.

Turn it up to eleven

NTT Com decided to expand their data center base to meet further demand after their Tokyo 10th Data Center was well-received by customers when it opened in April 2018.

“Tokyo 11th Data Center was built in an area with excellent access to central Tokyo,” said NTT Com in a statement.

The data center will be serviced by NTT Com’s Nexcenter service, with redundant power, air conditioning, disaster countermeasures and enhanced security.

To enable low latency and secure network connectivity, the facility will have connection points to various cloud providers and the Internet Exchange in Tokyo.

“Tokyo 11th Data Center is located on the strong bedrock of the Musashino Plateau, which is unlikely to be liquefied, away from active faults,” said NTT Com.

NTT Com adopted a seismic isolation structure, which is said to be safe even in the event of a large earthquake like the Nankai Trough earthquake class that is expected in the future.

Following the rising trend of green data centers, NTT Com installed an advanced indirect evaporation cooling system that can switch to the most efficient heat exchange system according to the season. This solution is said to reduce power consumption by 60% compared to traditional air conditioning systems.

“Unlike the conventional method of connecting outdoor equipment and indoor air conditioners with cold water pipes, the indirect evaporative cooling method improves space efficiency by integrating indoor and outdoor equipment,” said NTT Com.

The facility will use a blowout, which will blow air to the server room on the wall surfaces, supporting high-density installation of 8kW racks and achieving a high cooling efficiency.

In response to customer requests, the data center will also be supplied with renewable energy.

The launch of Tokyo 11th Data Center comes at a time when the domestic colocation market is valued at approximately US$5.2 billion (547 billion yen) and is expected to increase due to the demand for hybrid cloud applications that combine collocation and multicloud services.
