TSE sets up committee on Japan stock market outage as Fujitsu continues investigation – Japan Today

The exchange, owned by Japan Exchange Group, said the system crash happened after a memory in one of its discs was physically broken and an automatic switch to a back-up system failed due to a fault in the settings.
