Hyperscale data center solutions provider, Colt Data Centre Services (Colt DCS), has just announced the opening of a new data center facility in Osaka Keihanna, Japan.
The new Osaka Keihanna data center features the delivery of 42,000-meter square of IT space with a designed capacity of 45.9MW, of which the company claims that 75% has already been committed.
“In 2021, we were appointed by the joint venture between Fidelity and Mitsui as the exclusive service provider for the design, development, distribution, operations and customer service management for the venture,” said Niclas Sanfridsson, CEO of Colt DCS.
“The launch of Osaka Keihanna represents a major advancement in our journey to addressing the needs of customers for a robust and scalable solution rooted in operational excellence, sustainability, and exceptional customer service.”
Bringing Colt DCS’ IT capacity to 100MW in Japan, the new Osaka Keihanna data center is to further accelerate the company’s hyperscale strategy in Japan with a planned growth in excess of 150MW, while expecting to provide carrier neutral connectivity services to their customers.
“Following the announcement of our joint venture with Fidelity we have been working closely with Colt DCS in every aspect of the delivery of this new facility in Osaka Keihanna. The demand for sustainable hyperscale data center services and solutions across Japan is unprecedented Enabling businesses to undertake their digital transformation journey is critical in order for businesses to enter new markets faster than the competition. With the launch of the new Osaka Keihanna facility we are confident the capacity we are delivering with this data center will satisfy both the immediate and future capacity requirements of our customers,” said Takashi Nakai, General Manager of the Financial Business Division of Mitsui & Co.
