Internet Initiative Japan(IIJ), a Japanese Internet access and data center services provider, announced it will launch its new Moriyama data center in Nagoya, Aichi Prefecture, on 1 March, 2013. The facility is the company’s second in the Tokai Region (the other one is called “Nagoya”) its 20th in Japan.

Located in Moriyama Ward in northeastern Nagoya, the data center was built to meet the demand for suburban data centers, as a growing number of businesses seek to relocate their corporate information systems away from central urban areas, as part of business-continuity and disaster-preparedness plans drawn up after the catastrophic earthquake Japan’s northeast suffered in March 2011.

The buildings at this campus use seismic technology to make them earthquake-resistant and have extended emergency-power ride-through capacity beyond the usual 24 -72 hours. The site provides up to 120 hours of power generation.

IIJ made it easy to connect physical infrastructure at the new data center to its cloud infrastructure. Clients that lease rack space here can connect to the IIJ GIO cloud service through an on-site gateway.

To be able to work with a variety of hybrid approaches using both on-premises and cloud services, such as housing special devices for connecting the client’s cloud-based equipment with internal corporate systems, IIJ added an option to lease one-eighths of a rack in addition to the traditional quarter-rack and full-rack capacity increments.
