KDDI to invest $270 million to set up 2 new Telehouse data centers

KDDI will invest $270 million to set up two new Telehouse data centers.

Telehouse Osaka 2 and Telehouse Tokyo Tama 3 will open in August 2015 and February 2016, respectively.

These new facilities will take the total amount of Telehouse data center space to approximately 4 million square feet, provided by 46 sites across 13 countries / territories and 24 major cities.

Both Osaka and Tokyo facilities will offer 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, and 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, located in the center of Osaka city, will offer 700 racks of tenancy space with up to 30kVA (designed) per rack. 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, approximately 18 miles from the Tokyo city center in a highly guarded surrounding.

The five story building will offer 1,300 racks of tenancy space with up to 42kVA power supply to racks, the highest in Japan and 5 times industry average, with a designed PUE 1.31 making it one of the most energy efficient data centers in Japan.
