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.
