NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com), the ICT solutions and international communications business within the NTT Group (TOKYO:9432), announced today it will launch its Osaka 6 Data Center (Osaka 6) and Osaka 7 Data Center (Osaka 7) by the end of 2019 and thereby expand its data-supply capacity 2.2-fold.

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.
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.

175 Million Europeans Have Sleep Apnoea, Highlighting Scale of Global Health Crisis18.9.2018 13:05 | Pressemelding
Roughly 175 million Europeans have obstructive sleep apnoea, according to a late-breaking abstract presented by ResMed today at the European Respiratory Society’s annual ERS Congress in Paris. Leading researchers estimate 90 million Europeans have moderate to severe sleep apnoea, meaning they experience at least 15 breathing events an hour during sleep. These statistics are based on the latest scoring rules for determining one’s apnoea–hypopnoea index (AASM 2012) and are connected with a 16-country study announced in May 2018 that revealed an estimated 936 million people worldwide have sleep apnoea, a chronic sleep-disordered breathing condition associated with increased risk of mortality and reduced quality of life. The new global prevalence is nearly tenfold higher than the previous one – 100 million – estimated by the World Health Organization in 2007. European countries with the highest prevalence are: Russia, 40 million Germany, 26 million France, 24 million Ukraine, 13 million Sp

SIA Has Provided the New Real-Time Gross Settlement System in Denmark18.9.2018 13:00 | Pressemelding
SIA, European hi-tech company, leader in payment infrastructures and services, has further strengthened its positioning in the Nordic countries, by providing Danmarks Nationalbank with the new real-time gross settlement system (RTGS) that connects banks, mortgage banks and settlement systems. This RTGS platform is already in operation by the central banks of Norway and Sweden and it will soon go live in Iceland too. The up-to-date technology infrastructure developed by SIA has replaced the previous in-house system that has been in use by the Central Bank of Denmark since 2001. The new RTGS system, that secures safe and real-time transfer of Danish kroner, ensures continued efficiency, operational reliability, functional sophistication and simpler maintenance of the system. In this initiative, SIA has used its wholly-owned subsidiary Perago, based in Pretoria (South Africa) and specialized in central bank solutions. Later this year, Denmark will be the first non-euro country to particip
