AirTrunk is set to build a new 110 megawatt (MW) data centre in West Tokyo, its second hyperscale facility in the Japanese capital and eighth facility in the region.
When it comes online, the new centre - called TOK2 - will bring AirTrunk’s total capacity in Japan to over 410 MW.
The location was selected to be ready to service “a major cloud availability zone” and to complement the existing TOK1 centre, which opened less than six months ago.
TOK1 is located in the city of Inzai in the prefecture of Chiba, which is adjacent to Tokyo.
AirTrunk founder and CEO Robin Khuda said that TOK2 “will be delivered with AirTrunk’s trademark speed, scale, reliability, and efficiency,” though no specific timeline was announced.
“AirTrunk’s multi-billion-dollar investment into the economy will support the Japan Digital Agency’s path toward digitalisation, contributing to the country’s post-Covid recovery,” head of Japan Nori Matsushita said.
“It’s an exciting time to be a part of AirTrunk in Japan as we expand our team to support the growth of our data centre platform.”
