Colt Data Centre Services has opened a 45MW data center in Osaka Keihanna, Japan.
The design of the Osaka Keihanna data centre further builds on Colt DCS’ key learnings from their Inzai campus consisting of three data centres with a combined capacity of 50MW which is 97% occupied. The latest opening in Osaka Keihanna represents one of the largest data centres in Japan, with 42,000m2 of space and a designed capacity of 45.9MW, of which 75% has already been committed.
Ellen Hall, Fidelity’s Head of Direct Real Estate commented, “We are excited for the official launch of Osaka Keihanna. This is the first development under Fidelity’s joint venture with Mitsui and validates our belief that having local partners in Mitsui and Colt DCS, with long track records in the region, is key to success. We look forward to replicating that success with the additional sites currently under development.”
Takashi Nakai, General Manager of the Financial Business Division of Mitsui & Co said, “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 centre 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 centre will satisfy both the immediate and future capacity requirements of our customers.”
