NTT Com to Launch New Data Center in Malaysia

Tokyo, Japan and Cyberjaya, Malaysia - NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com) announced today that it will start construction on the new Cyberjaya 4 Data Center this month, targeting the provision of commercial operations from May 2014. 

Malaysia Cyberjaya 4 Data Center (CBJ4) will be the fourth data center in Malaysia to meet the expanding needs of the Southeast Asian market. Its advanced design will enable NTT Com to provide new business solutions for disaster recovery, managed services and professional training, which will be implemented through platform-as-a- service (PaaS) and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) business models. 

"Malaysia is well positioned to be a world-class preferred hub for data centers," said Fumitoshi Imaizumi, President and CEO of NTT MSC, a wholly owned Malaysian subsidiary of NTT Com. "Liberal investment policies by the government, solid infrastructure and a large supply of people with IT expertise and multilingual talents offer clear advantages for foreign investors, particularly in terms of disaster recovery and offshore relocation. Our new Tier III-ready facility will enable us to deliver outstanding service quality to cater to accelerating local and global demands" 

CBJ4 will offer high-quality, low-cost services in line with leading global standards such as the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA), The Uptime Institute, Inc. (TUI) and the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, Inc. (ASHRAE). It also will be compliant with the international certification, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), and Malaysia's eco rating, Green Building Index (GBI), both indicators of NTT Com's commitment to building an environmentally friendly data center. Extensive use of green technologies and innovative processes will help to mitigate the environmental impact of ICT equipment and facilities.
