NTT Communications Launches New Data Centers in Singapore and Malaysia

SINGAPORE, Apr. 27 /Kyodo JBN-AsiaNet/-

- Feature High-power, Low-latency Networks and IPv6-ready Infrastructure -  

NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com), a global leader in providing ICT
services announced on April 27 the official inauguration of its Singapore
Serangoon Data Center and Malaysia Cyberjaya 3 Data Center, the former of which
will serve financial-services companies and similar enterprises that require
high-power, low-latency networks and stable, secure infrastructure on which to
build private clouds.

The two facilities, NTT Com''s first self-designed-and-built data centers
outside Japan, are the company's fourth such facility in Singapore and the
third in Malaysia. They will provide key support for NTT Com's ongoing
expansion in the fast-growing Asia Pacific region, where the company already
operates data centers in 13 countries.

Singapore Serangoon Data Center is located in northeastern Singapore. The tier
III+ data center offers co-location, cloud services, NTT Com's global network
services and other related services. Key features are specifically designed to
cater to companies in the financial, information technology and manufacturing
sectors. The data center is connected directly to the Asia Submarine-cable
Express (ASE), NTT Com's new undersea cable offering high-speed,
high-reliability network environment between Singapore and other Asian
locations including Japan. The facility hosts 2,500 racks in a total server
room area measuring 5,000 square meters. Investment in the facility is about
12.4 billion JPY (approximately SGD 190 million).

Yoshio Chikayasu, CIO of HOYA, a Japanese multinational med-tech company and
the leading supplier of innovative precision products based on its optics
technologies, said: "HOYA chose the Singapore Serangoon Data Center's highly
reliable and flexible network environment to serve as an Asian hub for the
company's globally shared ICT platform. NTT Com is the ideal partner to help us
expand our global operations because it provides total ICT services, from
networks and data centers to clouds and applications, all on a seamless,
end-to-end, one-stop basis."

"We warmly welcome NTT Communications' decision to construct its first
self-designed and built green data center outside of Japan here in Singapore,"
said Jayson Goh, Executive Director of Infocomms and Media for The Singapore
Economic Development Board (EDB). "NTT Communications' latest data center will
add to the vibrancy of the infocomms ecosystem here and further reinforce
Singapore's position as a global data management hub. We are confident that
NTT Communications will be able to leverage Singapore's IT infrastructure and
market connectivity, as well as our business-friendly environment, to enhance
the delivery of services to its clients both in the region and globally."

"I am pleased that NTT Com has chosen Singapore to anchor this premium,
high-performance data center for the region. This affirms Singapore's position
as a globally trusted hub for business critical IT services and capabilities,"
said Mr Ronnie Tay, Chief Executive Officer of the Infocomm Development
Authority of Singapore (IDA), who is also the Guest of Honour for the Serangoon
Data Center inauguration ceremony. "I look forward to NTT Com leveraging
Singapore's strengths in infocomm infrastructure, data center capacity and
large presence of technology players to expand its operations here, including
through collaborating with our infocomm local enterprises in developing next
generation ICT solutions."

Singapore Serangoon Data Center has been fully operational since the end of
February. For more information, please visit

The second facility, Malaysia Cyberjaya 3 Data Center, started its operation on
April 26. It is an ideal as a remote back-up and offshore site due to
Malaysia's low electricity rates and stable infrastructure. An NTT Com-operated
annex building will offer customers convenient on-site office space. For more
