Features

  • Convenient location accessible to diverse customers

Osaka 7 in Ibaraki City will be just 30 minutes by public transportation from downtown Osaka and about one hour from Kyoto or Kobe. The carefully chosen location combines easy access with reduced risk of disruption due to disasters such as floods or earthquakes. The data center will be connected directly to Osaka's Dojima area, a major interconnection point for ISPs and data center operators. NTT Com’s Arcstar Universal One service for global networks and OCN and Global IP Network services for internet connectivity will be readily available for major cloud service providers, multinational companies and other customers.

  • Ideal network environment

Osaka 7 will be fully compliant with strict equipment and operational standards that NTT Com has globally unified under its Nexcenter™ family of data centers. In addition to redundant electric power, air conditioning, connections and strict security, users will benefit from NTT Com's high-capacity, high-quality and high-reliability network infrastructure. Moreover, from February 2020, the Flexible InterConnect service will enable Osaka 7 customers to securely interconnect data centers and cloud services for unified management of access points, bandwidth, security settings, etc. via Nexcenter Connect™ Metro, a large-capacity, high-speed network ring connecting NTT Com data centers in Osaka region.

  • Highly disaster resistant

Osaka 7’s seismic-isolation design will minimize the impact on buildings and customer equipment if another powerful massive earthquake were to occur. In addition, Osaka 7 will be located in an area where flooding is uncommon and electric power during disasters will be assured thanks to direct connection to an adjacent substation.

  • Flexible accommodation of equipment

Osaka 7 will be a campus-style data center offering fast, reduced-cost customization to meet diverse needs. The building’s modular design will help to minimize construction time, enabling customers to launch operations quickly and cost-efficiently. Server rooms using cooling wall-type air-conditioning will accommodate ultra-high-heat servers that consume 20kW or more of power, including GPU servers. An advanced high-voltage direct current (HVDC) system will assure reliability and will lower power loss by some 20% compared to AC power feeding.

Japan's data center business has been growing steadily at around 7% per annum and the domestic colocation market was valued at around 540 billion JPY in 2018. In addition to massive demand being generated by cloud-service providers and enterprises, continued growth is envisioned in the use of data centers for hybrid clouds combining on-premises and cloud infrastructure. NTT Com has continued to respond to surging demand in the Kansai area, including by launching now Osaka 7, which will fully satisfy customer needs with its winning combination of large capacity, easy access, disaster resistance and customer-friendly adaptivity.

Dole Unveils Integrated Strategy Against Banana Disease31.7.2020 20:32:00 EESTPress release

Dole Food Company today shared the company’s most recent update on its efforts to combat Fusarium Tropical Race 4 (TR4), a plant disease that poses an existential threat to bananas, a major staple crop for much of the world. Since the discovery of TR4 in northern Colombia one year ago, Dole swiftly ramped-up its TR4 response plan, implementing site-specific TR4 prevention activities throughout Latin America in coordination with local authorities and international experts to contain and prevent spread. A three-year containment program was immediately implemented in 2019 to ensure biosecurity protocols in every Dole banana farm, as well as those of Dole’s independent suppliers. Those protocols build upon best practices implemented in the banana producing countries where the disease has been successfully contained and are continually reviewed and strengthened per site—based upon the farm layout and location—to maximize the effectiveness of the risk-based mitigation plan. Dole also continu
