Fujitsu said the new data centre will help it deliver applications for customers world-wide as well be used as a back-up for its other data systems in the country.
As a prairie province, Saskatchewan is known for its chilly winters, which Fujitsu says will be taken advantage of. The news release says the data centre will utilize “the natural asset of the Saskatchewan climate to provide an external air temperature cooling system.”
Part of the Japan-based Fujitsu Ltd. information and communications conglomerate, Fujitsu Canada sells a wide range of products and services including industrial connectors and relays, semiconductors, RFID tags, sales terminals, network equipment for carriers and IT services.
It has about 2,400 employees in 10 offices across the country.
