KDDI (TOKYO:9433), the global telecommunications provider, announced today that it will invest 270 million dollars (28 billion yen) in building two new TELEHOUSE data centers, “TELEHOUSE OSAKA 2” and “TELEHOUSE TOKYO Tama 3”, scheduled to open in August 2015 and February 2016 respectively. These additional facilities will take the total amount of global TELEHOUSE data center space to 371,000 sqm provided by 46 sites across 13 countries/territories and 24 major cities.

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. The technical and operations room will be situated above second floor avoiding the risk of potential flooding. Osaka 2 can be used as a disaster recovery and back-up site for the Tokyo data centers.

TELEHOUSE Tokyo Tama 3 will be located on the existing Tama data center campus, 30km from the Tokyo city center in a highly guarded surrounding. The five storey building will offer 1,300 racks of tenancy space with up to 42kVA (designed) power supply to racks, the highest*1 in Japan and 5 times*2 industry average, with a designed PUE 1.31 making it one of the most energy efficient data centers in Japan.

This expansion reflects the growing demand for data center space in Japan’s metros and the ability of KDDI to accommodate leading multinationals expanding their portfolio in Japan. By securing their domestic market share in Japan, KDDI continues to be the leader in premium data center facilities.

Cloud resources, although available in abundance, are inherently volatile. For transactional computing, like ERP and most enterprise software, this is a challenge as transactional integrity and data fidelity is paramount – making it a challenge to create cloud native applications while relying on RDBMS.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...

Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
Enterprise architects are increasingly adopting multi-cloud strategies as they seek to utilize existing data center assets, leverage the advantages of cloud computing and avoid cloud vendor lock-in. This requires a globally aware traffic management strategy that can monitor infrastructure health across data centers and end-user experience globally, while responding to control changes and system specification at the speed of today’s DevOps teams. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Gray, Chie...
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach.
