NTT Communications said it will start construction on the new Cyberjaya 4 Data Center this month, targeting the provision of commercial operations from May 2014.
It said the advanced design of the Cyberjaya 4 Data Center (CBJ4) enable it 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.
CBJ4 will feature redundant systems for commercial and uninterruptible power supply, cooling, power generator and power distribution, plus robust systems for fire and flood prevention.
NTT said the facility’s 24x7 office environment will enable a wide range of business process outsourcing.
Customers will enjoy high-speed, large-capacity internet access through NTT Com’s global IP backbone and Arcstar Universal One global IP-VPN. The Asia Submarine-cable Express connecting Malaysia, Japan, Philippines, Hong Kong and Singapore will provide CBJ4 customers with extra-low-latency, extra-reliable network, data center and cloud services on an end-to-end, one-stop basis.
“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’s design will be compliant with the international certification such Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), and Malaysia’s eco rating the Green Building Index (GBI).
