Toshiba Corporation in conjunction with KDDI Corporation, one of have won an order from Daiwa Institute of Research Ltd., a major Japanese think tank and consultancy, to supply a modular data centre for a securities exchange system in Myanmar. This deal has opened the door for Toshiba to supply its modular data centre in an overseas market.
According to the release, Toshiba's modular data centre offers the robust structure of heavy gauge steel frame, along with side-air-cooling flow, which is better in a hot and humid climate like Myanmar's than standard vertical flow. This new approach allows centre operators to reduce power consumption by fans to 1/3 that of vertical flows. The data centres also integrate redundant systems, allowing continued operation in the event of a problem with one unit. A voltage stabilizer will also be built into the securities exchange modules, as power supply voltages in Myanmar can be irregular.
