The Osaka 6, which will be located in a building that NTT West Corporation is constructing in downtown Osaka, will launch with 460m2 of server space and eventually expand to 1,370m2 and 400 racks. The Osaka 7, which will be situated in a dedicated datacenter building in Ibaraki, Osaka Prefecture, will boast initial server space of 3,800m2 and eventually grow to 9,500m2 and 4,200 racks.

“In response to the strong demand for massive data from cloud-service providers and other hyper-scale customers in the greater Osaka area, despite having launched our Osaka 5 Data Center in 2016 we have decided to build two new datacenters to further satisfy customers’ needs,” said Kenichiro Iida, Senior Vice President, Head of Cloud Services. “Data demands among hyper-scale companies are already robust, but we foresee even more data needs for hybrid cloud services that combine colocation and multi-clouds.”

Features of Osaka 6 and 7

• Convenient locations to serve diverse customers
Osaka 6 in downtown Osaka will be conveniently accessible from multiple stations, with the nearest subway station just a two-minute walk away. Osaka 7 in Ibaraki will be near downtown Osaka but offer reduced risk of disasters such as floods and earthquakes. Both datacenters will connect directly to Osaka’s Dojima area, a major interconnection point for ISPs and datacenter operators. Services will be available to an extensive range of customers, including major cloud service providers and other hyper-scale operators and enterprises.

• Ideal network environment
Both datacenters will fully comply with strict equipment and operation standards that have been globally unified under NTT Com’s Nexcenter™ family of datacenters. In addition to redundant electric power, air-conditioning, connections and security, users will benefit from NTT Com’s high-capacity, high-quality and high-reliability network infrastructure. IX, ISP and multi-cloud connectivity will be enhanced by direct connections to other NTT Com datacenters in Osaka via 10 Gbps Nexcenter Connect™ Metro.

• High disaster tolerance
Both datacenters will be equipped with seismic isolation structure to minimize the impact on buildings and customer equipment if another Nankai megathrust earthquake were to occur. Electric power, network equipment, server rooms and other key facilities will be located on the second floor or higher of Osaka 6. to enable interrupted operation even if the first floor were to be flooded. Reliable electric power supply will be assured through the use of multiple substations and routes. Communication cables will enter the buildings through large earthquake-resistant tunnels to prevent damage from earthquakes or road excavation work. Osaka 7 will be located in an area where flooding is uncommon, and electric power will be secured even in case of disaster by connecting directly to the adjacent substation.

• Flexible equipment compliance
Osaka 7 will be a campus-style datacenter that offers fast, reduced-cost customization to meet specific customer needs. Server rooms will adopt highly efficient cooling wall-type air-conditioning and will be able to accommodate ultra-high-heat servers that consume 20kW or more of power, such as GPU servers. The facility is expected to deploy advanced technologies such as a high-voltage direct current (HVDC) system for improved reliability and some 20% lower power loss through reduced power consumption.

Background

Japan’s colocation market that was worth around 540 billion JPY in 2018 and datacenter business has been growing steadily at around 7% per annum. Cloud-service providers and other hyper-scale companies, as well as enterprise customers, continue to generate massive demand. In addition, the use of datacenters for hybrid clouds that combine colocation and multi-clouds is expected to expand.

Gilead Subsidiary to Launch Authorized Generics of Epclusa® (Sofosbuvir/Velpatasvir) and Harvoni® (Ledipasvir/Sofosbuvir) for the Treatment of Chronic Hepatitis C24.9.2018 15:30Tiedote

Gilead Sciences, Inc. (NASDAQ: GILD) announced today plans to launch authorized generic versions of Epclusa® (sofosbuvir 400mg/velpatasvir 100mg) and Harvoni® (ledipasvir 90mg/sofosbuvir 400mg), Gilead’s leading treatments for chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV), in the United States, through a newly created subsidiary, Asegua Therapeutics LLC. The authorized generics will launch at a list price of $24,000 for the most common course of therapy and will be available in January 2019. Since the launch of Gilead’s first HCV medication in 2013, the average price paid for each bottle of medicine in the United States has decreased by more than 60 percent off of the public list prices, across health insurers and government payers. Due to the complexity and structure of the U.S. healthcare system, however, these discounts provided by Gilead may not always translate into lower costs for patients. Further, existing contracts, together with laws associated with government pricing policies, make it cha
