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

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. 

Colt DCA is powered by the Colt IQ Network connects over 29,000 on net buildings and more than 900 data centres globally, including over 90 data centres and 2,500 on net buildings in Asia.

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

Minoru Ando, general manager of ICT business and systems group data technology division at MRI DCS, said the consultancy service at Colt enabled them to design and develop the network environment in the public cloud that matches the customer whether there is IP duplication.

Currently, Dibertas can be used for Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure, with other cloud services to be added depending on 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 that can be used effectively when combining with Dibertas.
