MC Digital Realty, a 50/50 joint venture between Mitsubishi Corporation and Digital Realty providing a full suite of data centre solutions in Japan, has announced the official opening of KIX13, the fourth building on the 23,000 square-metres Osaka data centre campus.
A three-story facility reinforced with seismic isolation systems for resilience against earthquakes, KIX13 offers customers institutional quality digital infrastructure solutions of up to 21MW of IT capacity in one of the most highly sought-after markets for cloud data centres in the world.
The addition of KIX13 brings total IT capacity at the MC Digital Realty Osaka campus to over 70MW, to meet surging demand for digital infrastructure in Japan.
As enterprises in Japan transition to the cloud, cloud service providers are increasing their footprint in Tokyo and Osaka to serve accelerating consumer and enterprise demand for cloud services, driving growth of Japan’s data centre market. As well, Japan’s national Digital Transformation initiative, Internet usage and the advent of 5G have seen demand for online gaming, streaming and FinTech services soar, adding to the need for institutional quality infrastructure solutions.
