Top rated (JDCC:tier 4) support with the data center facility standard
Closer to a global standard data center because of its M&O Stamp of Approval

Nishi-Tokyo Data Center is located on the Musashino plateau, which is less affected by natural disasters. This data center was evaluated for its "Tier 4 highly efficient facility", "Gained the M&O Stamp of Approval to demonstrate its global standard operating quality", and "Extensive SE services". The data center is used by a lot of firms including finance businesses, manufacturers, and cloud service providers.

Nishi-Tokyo Data Center High-performance facility and Global standard operation quality

  • We want to implement high-capacity storage and a highly-consolidated server, so we require a withstanding load of one ton or more
  • We want to run a stable system even during a disaster or emergency
  • We want to outsource the system operation and maintenance to balance the workload
  • Highly efficient facilityWe are prepared for every situation in order to protect the customer's critical information assets
  • Global standard operating qualityWe regularly perform training based on the assumption that a disaster and fault will occur
  • Extensive SE servicesOur specialists in each field are ready to assist the customer's IT department with all their knowledge

Location with excellent usability

  • Located in an environment that has excellent access from Tokyo
    • Suburban data center located at Nishi-Tokyo
    • Within one hour from Tokyo
  • Diverse usability
    • Available as a main site
    • Available as a disaster recovery site/ BCP site
  • It is possible to rush to the site during a disaster
    • Location without the need to go over a large river while going there from Tokyo

Safe and secure subgrade

  • Extremely firm subgrade
    • N value >= 50
    • Positioned almost at the center of the Musashino plateau
  • Low risk of a disaster
    • Lowest degree of risk 1, 1, 1 (degree of risk of building collapse, fire, and evacuation) according to Tokyo's survey results
    • No active fault around the location
  • Low risk of a tidal wave and liquefaction
    • Sufficient distance from the seashore
    • Diluvial formation with old depositional age

Highest-level of earthquake resistance in Japan

  • Base-isolated structure
    • The base-isolated structure enables the floor acceleration to remain at 250 cm/s2 (gal) or less in the CPU room by mitigating the seismic force acting on the building
  • Vertical shake damping structure
    • Vertical shake is mitigated during an earthquake using vertical shake dampers and a frame plan that mitigates vertical shake
  • Basic structure
    • Direct footing is adopted which is supported by a solid conglomerate layer
  • Structure monitoring
    • A seismometer records the behavior of the building during an earthquake and the degree of damage to the building is analyzed after the earthquake

High-end equipment

  • Highly integrated and high density equipment can be mounted (supporting the mounting of heavy equipment such as blade servers and storage)
    • Facility with a 1.5 t/m2 floor load
    • Power is supplied at tier 4 level
  • 1,000 mm underfloor height is supported
    • This exceeds the tier 4 standard of 750 mm for the underfloor height
    • 1,000 mm height improves the efficiency of air-conditioning
  • Support for overheating problems associated with highly integrated and high density equipment
    • Cooling with local air-conditioner (optional)
    • Aisle containment air-conditioning is installed (optional)

Incoming line where the flexibility is taken into account

  • Line redundancy is possible through different stations and routes on different carriers
  • Support for free line carriers
  • Since there are no restrictions on incoming line carriers, flexible WAN design is possible

Data center is environmentally friendly

  • Equipment design PUE = 1.4
    High efficiency air conditioning system
  • What's PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness)?
    Power consumption of the whole data center / Power consumption of IT equipment
    Index indicating the energy efficiency at the data center. The closer to 1.0, the higher the efficiency. Generally this number is 1.5 to 2.0 in Japan.

Full and complete security

Full and complete security

  • Compliant with the guidelines of Financial Information System Center (FISC) in Japan
  • Strict security across a maximum number of 7 stages

External Linkage

Outstanding operating quality

  • Comprehensive interlocking inspection is performed which maintains and inspects each piece of equipment and also verifies the equipment's overall normal and speedy operation. During a comprehensive interlocking inspection, we simulate a blackout by actually suspending the power supply from the power company and instead supply power from an emergency power generator.
  • The equipment is checked 500 times or more a year in order to provide stable operation while training is done every week by selecting from 200 or more scenarios.
  • Our continuous maintenance activities for operating quality have been recognized, and we have acquired multiple third party certifications.

System operations

  • We provide for all of your needs from design to continuous service improvement by combining operation services
  • We monitor the customer’s service to provide a proactive operation service
