Telehouse, the colocation data centre operator, has announced further expansion into the Asian market with the opening of another large data centre in the region.
Telehouse, together with parent
company KDDI, have opened a new data centre facility on
Telehouse’s existing Tama campus in Tokyo, Japan,
a short distance from the centre of the city.
The site comprises of 1300 tenant racks providing up to 42
KVAs per rack. Telehouse claims that this is the highest in the
region. The Tama campus now has a total capacity of 4,300 racks
This new expansion continues the increase in the popularity
of enterprise colocation. Sandra de Novellis, head of marketing
at Telehouse, said: "The continuous demand for data centre
space in APAC, combined with a strong investment partnership
with KDDI, allows Telehouse to expand quickly in key hubs."
High density colocation services such as
Telehouse’s enable the hosting of heavy load IT
infrastructure, private cloud and densely-integrated content
A hybrid quake-proof structure has been employed in the
building of all the Tama campus facilities which makes them
resistant to long-period ground motion. The data centre is
located 30 kilometres away from the metropolitan area, which
has a lower risk of earthquakes and is less prone to other
disasters, including floods and tsunami.
