Japanese Telco Leader KDDI Invents Immersion Cooling Small Data Centre With GIGABYTE

KDDI Corporation, which ranks alongside SoftBank Group Corp. and NTT Docomo Inc. as one of Japan’s top three telecommunications companies, started work in July of 2020 on a new, experimental design for data centres that may set the trend for edge computing and “net zero” green computing. To deliver these new designs, the company needed a strong partner. This case study discusses the partnership between Japanese telco leader KDDI and GIGABYTE and looks at the benefits KDDI has realised from modernising its data centres.
