Fujitsu Expands Data Center Footprint in Canada With New High-Performance Facility in Saskatchewan

New Facility Will Offer Enhanced Cloud, Co-Location and Managed Services in the Canadian Market

REGINA, SK -- (Marketwire) -- 11/27/12 -- Fujitsu today announced the building of a certified Tier III data center in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. The new data center will offer the flexible Fujitsu 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 Saskatchewan and among only a handful of Tier III data centers in Western Canada.

Fujitsu is a $54B leader in Global IT Systems and Services, with a track record of more than 70 years, providing mission-critical support for over 100 highly secure and available, fully redundant data centers with more than 1 million square feet. Customers in Canada across both public and private sector industries including manufacturing, agriculture, healthcare, financial services and the resource sectors are demanding more data center options to help tackle big data analysis, Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), deployment of cloud applications as well as secure storage and disaster recovery.

The Fujitsu Saskatchewan Data Center at full build out will feature 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.

"As the world's third largest IT services provider, Fujitsu has a proud history in the design, construction and operation of intelligent data centers," said André Pouliot, president, Fujitsu Canada. "Our new facility in Saskatchewan underscores our commitment to the market and offers our customers flexible and enhanced services to meet the needs of today's global companies while at the same time creating high value jobs for the local economy. 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."

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. The innovative design of the Fujitsu facility will allow organizations to host applications and data in data storage pools for the time required and pay only for the capacity needed.

The Saskatchewan data center will be environmentally friendly, utilizing the natural asset of the Saskatchewan climate to provide an external air temperature cooling system -- often referred to as "Free Cooling" -- along with other unique green design features. With a commitment to efficiency and energy savings, Fujitsu has pioneered implementing green data centers by reducing environmental burden and providing super-green IT equipment products and IT applications, helping customers greatly reduce their costs. With the gradual optimization of IT budgeting, Fujitsu has also reduced the cost of maintenance and IT equipment upgrades.

This announcement comes on the heels of Fujitsu Canada's acquisition of TMC, a Saskatchewan-based business and information technology consulting solution and service provider. The construction of the Saskatchewan data center is aligned to Fujitsu Canada's long-term strategy to strengthen its position as a leader in the Canadian information and communication technology (ICT) market and help infuse the regional market with new jobs for IT professionals.
