Colt Data Centre Services’ (DCS) Inzai 1 data centre has been awarded the Stamp of Approval for Management & Operations (M&O) by Uptime Institute Professional Services.
The M&O Stamp of Approval outlines the necessary measures data centre owners and operators must take to achieve the maximum uptime of their existing data centres. To earn the award, companies must conduct a risk analysis of their selected data centre and take the necessary steps to mitigate these risks.
Adherence to the Management and Operations measures has been proven to minimise the chances of human error, which is the number one cause of data centre downtime. It also allows companies to get the most out of their data centres and related assets.
The M&O Stamp of Approval was awarded to Colt DCS’ Inzai 1 data centre following a document assessment in May 2020. This was subsequently followed by a site verification assessment, which was performed from 30th November 2020 to 2nd December 2020. The award is valid until 10th December 2022.
Hiroshige Sugihara, Vice President, Head of Asia-Pacific, Colt DCS, said: “This award demonstrates the high standards we hold ourselves to at Colt DCS. To make sure our customers get the best possible service, we do everything we can to avoid the risk of downtime and, as this award shows, we’re succeeding.
“This award, in addition to the launch of our Inzai 3 hyperscale facility in 2020, also highlights our commitment in helping Japan achieve its digital transformation goals, set out by Yoshihide Suga, the Japanese Prime Minister. Colt DCS’ data centres provide a demonstrably stable and expansive platform to support growth for countries and companies alike.”
Inzai 1 is part of Colt DCS’ three-site campus, which also possesses Inzai 2 and 3, both of which are hyperscale facilities. Inzai 1 remains one of the most secure, high-specification data centres in Japan. The facility is situated in Inzai city, Chiba, which is a low earthquake risk location just 40 minutes from Tokyo.
