Both facilities will offer high-density colocation services enabling the hosting of heavy load IT infrastructure. The data centers will meet the growing demand for housing private enterprise clouds along with public cloud service providers, online and media content companies. The facilities are designed to Tier 3+ data center standards in redundancy and uptime. It will be insusceptible to earthquakes by a long-period absorption structure, reflecting the high quality Global TELEHOUSE specifications. In addition, KDDI can provide a combined solution by providing direct access to the KDDI global network along with the data center.
TELEHOUSE Osaka 2, in the center of Osaka city, will offer 700 racks of tenancy space with up to 30kVA (designed) per rack.
