Fujitsu to Construct New Facilities at Its Tatebayashi and Akashi System Centers

Expanding core facilities in eastern and western Japan to accelerate IoT and cloud business

Tokyo, Jan 28, 2015 - (JCN Newswire) - Fujitsu today announced plans to construct new annexes at its Tatebayashi System Center and Akashi System Center, its main data centers in Japan, to serve as the core facilities for accelerating its IoT and cloud businesses. Construction will steadily move forward starting this month, with the Tatebayashi System Center's new annex set to open in April 2016, and the Akashi System Center's new annex to open in July 2016.

To accommodate expanding needs amongst customers, such as for business continuity measures triggered by the Great East Japan Earthquake, and diversified applications accompanying the expansion of cloud use, Fujitsu will construct new annexes for its main data centers located in eastern and western Japan with the aim of further expanding its outsourcing business and cloud services business. The new annexes will meet the highest standards for ICT facilities in Japan and will offer the latest technologies, such as software-defined networking (SDN)(1).

In its global data center business and in other fields, Fujitsu will continue to bring enhanced convenience to increasingly complex ICT usage, and thereby contribute to business innovation on the part of its customers.

In recent years, companies have been facing significant management challenges, such as the need to enhance business continuity measures for disaster mitigation and recovery, rationalizing ever-increasing operational costs, and the ability to respond immediately to changes in the market, all of which have increased the importance of ICT more than ever as essential infrastructure for management.

To accommodate the increasing demand for cloud services and the needs for data center utilization, Fujitsu will construct new annexes on the premises of its Tatebayashi System Center and Akashi System Center, Fujitsu's two main domestic data centers for eastern and western Japan. Both facilities will offer the latest technologies, such as SDN, providing an ICT environment that enables immediate access to the cloud and network services from anywhere and at any time.

Since establishing the Tatebayashi System Center in 1995, Fujitsu has come to provide cloud and outsourcing services from over 100 locations, with 70 locations in Japan and over 40 overseas. Fujitsu will continue to mobilize its operational technology and know-how gained through twenty years in the data center business, and while continuously enhancing the value and quality of ICT, work to achieve business innovation together with its customers.
