Mitsubishi Research Institute DCS (MRI DCS) is using Colt Technology Services’ Dedicated Cloud Access (DCA) and Ethernet solutions for their new service - Dibertas.

“One of the most important advantages of using Dibertas is that our customers can access their data at various locations securely and quickly. We use our own data centre based on the concept of keeping our customers' data safe and secure at the specified location,” said Takashi Gouda, managing executive officer digital transformation unit head at Mitsubishi Research Institute DCS.

“Typically, the server and the storage are in the same place and connected by a cable, but this time, they are in different places and connected by a network. Therefore, we needed best-in-class connectivity. We are satisfied with Colt’s extremely secure and low-latency network.”

Dibertas is a multi-cloud storage service which aggregates data from various environments enabling its customers to access and use data across multiple cloud services and on-premises environments.

“The consultancy service at Colt helped us a lot in the process of connecting to the public cloud, so that we were able to design and develop the network environment in the public cloud that matches the customer whether there is IP duplication,“ added Minoru Ando, ICT business & systems group data technology division general manager at Mitsubishi Research Institute DCS.

Colt's DCA and Ethernet solutions support Dibertas' features by delivering higher reliability, data security and lower latency when compared to public internet connections

“We are delighted to be working with MRI for their Dibertas service. Together, we are focused on improving the solutions that businesses need when moving to the cloud,” added Masato Hoshino (pictured), president and head of Asia at Colt Technology Services.  

“As a connectivity provider, we are working hard to proactively understand the latest market needs to ensure our products and sales offerings are aligned to the future of industry. We remain focused on ensuring our customers remain at the heart of everything we do.”

At present, Dibertas can be used for Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure, with other cloud services to be added subject to customer needs.

In the future, MRI DCS is planning to expand to the western part of Japan, adding facilities to be used as a mutual backup, as well as developing new services.
