NTT Communications has announced that it will start construction on the new Cyberjaya 4 Data Center this month.

The operator is targeting the provision of commercial operations from May 2014.

Malaysia Cyberjaya 4 Data Center (CBJ4) will be the fourth data center in Malaysia to meet the expanding needs of the Southeast Asian market. Its advanced design will enable NTT Com 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 systems for fire and flood prevention.

Customers will be offered 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 be put to particular use.

“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.”

CBJ4 will offer services that comply with global standards such as those developed by the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA), The Uptime Institute, Inc. (TUI) and the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, Inc. (ASHRAE).

It also will be compliant with the international certification, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), and Malaysia’s eco rating, Green Building Index (GBI).
