Data Center Construction Engineering Solution(DCCES)

About the Solution Overview

Data Center Construction Engineering Solution (DCCES) is a solution that consistently supports data center construction projects, from concept design to data center operation.

Bringing together the know-how of the Modular Data Centers and Hyperscale Data Centers constructed and operated by the IIJ Group, we can create an optimal data center for your business environment.

Please contact us if you are considering a scenario such as one of the following.

Businesses with transformation plans, such as building and providing data centers in Japan and overseas.

  • To deploy data center specifications suitable for business purposes.
  • To build a data center that can withstand technological innovations such as IoT and AI.
  • To manage schedules and costs, and maximize the value of the data center.

Data Center Construction Process and Service Flow

Solution Features

Utilizing the know-how gained from the construction and operation of our own data centers

Based on our experience in constructing and operating state-of-the-art data centers, we can provide a comprehensive overview of the entire facility from the initial stage of planning, and support the construction of a higher-level data center that integrates IT and facilities.

Energy-saving and environmentally friendly grand design

In a data center that consumes a large amount of electricity, energy saving and consideration for the environment are indispensable.

IIJ's data center has achieved high energy-saving performance, and supports planning that takes into consideration the achievement of SDGs such as response to climate change.

Advanced construction management that makes full use of CM method

We provide advanced construction project management and support by making full use of the CM (Construction Management) method, which is common in Europe and the United States and has been adopted in Japan in recent years.

Post-construction operations supported

The burdens placed on operators of data centers are much greater than those for a normal building. For example, the need for non-stop maintenance and management of facilities, controlling user access to maintain high security, management of colocation services, acquisition of certification, and public relations with local governments, electric power, and telecommunications companies.

IIJ Engineering, which is responsible for the operation of the IIJ Group's domestic and overseas data centers, supports post-construction operational design and commercial operations, reducing the burden on customers.

In addition, by designing operations in parallel from the design phase of the data center facility, a facility that can be operated without stress can be implemented.

Solution provisioning system

In cooperation with design office / construction company and based on IIJ's basic design, CM Plus Co., Ltd. will carry out construction management, and IIJ Engineering Co., Ltd. will take over data center operation design and operation work.

The Matsue Data Center Park and Shiroi Data Center Campus were implemented through the close cooperation of these three companies.

Project operation management that fully utilizes the CM method

We provide advanced construction management using the CM (Construction Management) method.

CM Plus Co., Ltd. has a track record of supporting more than 300 construction projects that make full use of CM methods in Japan, Southeast Asia, India, and the United States.

CM (Construction Management) method:

A method of transparently operating and managing projects in collaboration with the stakeholder and designer from the perspectives of QCD (quality, cost, process) + EHS (environment, health, safety).

In this solution, the following tasks will be implemented:

  • Schedule, Cost, Quality will be managed by CM method
  • Compliance with building standards and local ordinances, which can present risks for the project
  • Support for negotiations with infrastructure supply companies such as electric power
  • Ensuring transparency of project costs using the open book method
  • Accurate CAPEX and OPEX optimization from the business planning stage with BIM (Building Information Modeling) tools specialized for data centers
  • Reduction of total construction cost through optimized separate orders for construction

The open book method:

A method in which a construction company discloses cost information to the stakeholder to ensure the transparency of construction costs, in order to clarify the fairness of the payment amount and its consideration. The features of this are that the management cost (indirect cost) of the contractor and the direct construction cost are clearly separated in the construction contract.

Separate construction orders:

The construction tasks are divided into the categories of building, equipment, electricity, telecommunications, and security. Then, for each category a contractor is selected, and orders are placed. This allows costs to be better grasped and optimized compared to the conventional batch ordering method.

Toward a Data Center That Is Both Advanced and Stable -- IIJ's efforts

The IIJ Group is continuing various efforts to realize an environment-friendly data center capable of responding to changes in business, while of course providing high stability and reliability.

In-house development of Japan's first outside air cooling container type data center

The "Matsue Data Center Park," opened in 2011, is Japan's first commercial data center with an outside air cooling container unit.

It is also used as IIJ's cloud service platform, demonstrating high accommodation efficiency and energy-saving performance.

System modular data center anticipates an era of data explosion

The Shiroi Data Center Campus, which opened in May 2019, uses the system modular construction method.

In addition to significant reductions in construction time and costs, it can be expanded in stages as data center demand increases.

Pursuing energy-saving performance with the aim of RE100 and SDGs

At the Shiroi Data Center Campus, we are making various efforts, such as introducing large-capacity lithium-ion storage batteries and optimizing electric power through charge / discharge control, with a view to actively using renewable energy.

Operation automation by robot

Soft robots (RBA / RPA automation platform) automate IT operations such as admission application work and recovery response in the event of a failure. And automate regular patrol work with physical robots.

We aim to save labor and improve the working environment for Data Center operations, which go on continuously 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Supports small scale data centers for edge computing

The "co-IZmo / I" developed by IIJ is a modular data center equipped with IT equipment and air conditioning equipment.

Since it can be easily moved anywhere, it is also ideal for edge computing applications. By connecting modules, it is possible to deploy from several racks to hundreds of racks.

Building the first state-owned data center in Laos

Utilizing modular data center technology, we supported the construction of an environment-friendly state-owned data center in Laos.

We participated in the "Laos Energy Conservation Data Center Project" * and provided evidence of effectiveness in reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

* Business utilizing the bilateral credit system of the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO)
