Tokyo Data Center 2 (TDC2)
KVH Tokyo Data Center 2 is one of the most advanced and secure data centers in the world. It has the highest level of seismic isolation of any data center in Japan and is in an ideal geographic location – being within easy access of central Tokyo and close to the major landing stations serving Tokyo but while also being 20km from the coast. In addition, we have expansion capacity for another three data centers on the same site. For these reasons TDC2 is rapidly becoming a major hub for the financial services and the cloud services industries in Japan.
TDC2 is located midway between Tokyo city center and Narita airport in Chiba Prefecture. It is 33 kilometers from central Tokyo and therefore meets FISC requirements as a back up for primary facilities based in central Tokyo. KVH TDC2 also sits on a different tectonic plate to Tokyo and is equipped with the most advanced seismic isolation equipment currently available. As a result, KVH TDC2 has earned a Probable Maximum Loss (PML) rating of 2.6%, making it one of the safest , if not the safest, building in Japan in the event of major seismic activity.
TDC2 is also the only data center in Japan that currently supports high density racks ranging from 6kW as standard up to 20kW if required. TDC2 is designed to operate at an annualized average power usage effectiveness (PUE) of below 1.5, a rating far lower than the average PUE of 2.0 for most Japanese data centers. The site itself will accommodate three more data centers of the same size as TDC2 (a potential net increase of 12,000 m2 in computing space capacity) and it therefore offers future proofing for additional expansion.
TDC2 conforms to ISO27001 and FISC (Center for Financial Industry Information Systems) standards, satisfying most major compliance requirements. A secure, high spec environment offering high performance multi-carrier connectivity and 24x7 multilingual customer support, TDC2 is the ultimate primary or secondary data center of choice for your present and future business needs.
During the Great Tohoku Earthquake that struck northern Japan on March 11, 2011, TDC2 suffered no damage and no outages. The seismic isolation worked perfectly and reduced the impact of the earthquake to 4.2 within the seismically isolated area.
