Fujitsu announced its plans to build a certified Tier III data center in Regina SK, featuring the firm’s flexible portfolio of co-location, managed services, dedicated and cloud hosting services.
This new facility will be the first Tier III data center built in Canada for Fujitsu and will expand its presence and service offerings in Saskatchewan, a province that continues to experience major economic growth. This data center will be the first of its kind in the province and among only a handful of Tier III data centers in Western Canada.
The Fujitsu Saskatchewan Data Center at full build out will provide up to 35,000 square feet of high-density Tier III data hall space, bringing needed capacity to existing Fujitsu customers in the market. It will also offer the full Fujitsu portfolio of IT Infrastructure services to new customers across Canada and beyond who rely on co-location, hosting, cloud and fast, reliable, low-latency delivery of business-critical applications.
“With the launch of this new facility, we are offering clear opportunities for all organizations, regardless of size or industry, to enhance the use of technology to improve efficiencies and significantly reduce costs,” says André Pouliot, president, Fujitsu Canada.
As a certified Tier III data center, this Western Canadian facility will be concurrently maintainable, allowing for planned maintenance activity of power and cooling systems to take place without disrupting the operation of computer hardware located in the data center. The data center will also not only reduce the pressure on system applications for customers across the globe, it will act as a back-up location for the Canada-based systems, providing emergency back-up and data restoration services.
