Data center, colocation and interconnection solutions provider Digital Realty has announced a multi-megawatt, multi-year agreement with a leading global cloud service provider for capacity at its new Digital Osaka 2 Data Centre.
The new facility is currently under construction and is scheduled to open in mid-2019, further expanding the Digital Osaka connected campus.
The four-story facility will be reinforced with seismic isolation systems, will span over 23,000 square meters, and is expected to deliver up to 28 megawatts of total IT capacity. The new data center will be connected via dark fiber to the previous and subsequent phases of the Digital Osaka connected campus.
The development of the Digital Osaka 2 facility will enhance Digital Realty’s ability to meet the growing customer demand for comprehensive data center and colocation solutions in Japan.
The next-generation facility demonstrates Digital Realty’s long-term commitment to the Japanese market and builds upon the success of Digital Osaka 1, which was fully leased prior to its grand opening in May 2017.
“Our new Osaka facility represents another milestone in our expansion across the Asia Pacific region and provides us with flexibility to meet the growing business demands of our global customers in Japan,” Digital Realty CFO Krupal Raval said.
“The significant pre-leasing momentum we have enjoyed on both phases in Osaka is a strong testament to the power of our global platform.”
