NTT’s Cyberjaya 5 (CBJ5) data centre has received three certifications — UPTIME Tier III Certificate of Design Documents and the Tier III Certificate of Constructed Facility, as well as the TIA-942 Rated-3 certification by EPI.
It was awarded the certifications after a rigorous inspection of the facilities and operations by Uptime Institute and EPI.
The UPTIME Tier III certificates show that CBJ5 meets the performance and reliability requirements for around-the-clock operations and efficiently operate without any shutdowns, ensuring maximum level of safety and security for optimum performance.
The TIA-942 Rated-3 certificate confirms that it can undergo any planned maintenance without downtime or disruption to its operations.
“We are very confident that CBJ5 and its new certifications, together with NTT’s enormous investment in a new and high capacity submarine cable project, will attract more international investors and enterprises to the country, strengthening it as a business and economic hub while contributing to the new digital initiative, MyDIGITAL, which aims to transform Malaysia into a regional leader in digital economy,” said Oka Hiroshi, Ambassador of Japan to Malaysia, at the celebration.
According to Zulkarnain Mohd Yasin, Chief Regulatory Officer, Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC), the recognitions and achievement reflect the exceptional standards that NTT has always worked towards.
With these certifications, the data centre’s customers can be better assured of its quality.
“Our Cyberjaya Campus features a high-density fiber network facilitating inter-connection among our clients to create a robust digital supply chain ecosystem. This is especially crucial now as corporations are shifting towards hybrid cloud services to address demands of upgrade and supporting critical infrastructure as well as storage needs, along with using devices to support remote working during the pandemic,” said Henrick Choo, CEO of NTT Malaysia.
