Colt DCS unveils its largest data centre in Japan


Colt Data Centre Services (DCS) has announced the launch of its Inzai 3 hyperscale data centre, which is its largest facility in Japan.

The company said the 27MW facility has achieved over 90% pre-letting and the launch of Inzai 3 represents an expansion of Colt DCS’ Inzai campus, which already houses two other hyperscale facilities.

Between the three data centres, there is a total of 50MW of IT power available on the campus.

Inzai 3’s data halls are 1,000-sqm each, enabling higher density compute at an average of 3.375kW per sqm.

“The demand we are seeing within the Japanese market is unlike ever before,” said Hiroshige Sugihara, Head of APAC, Colt DCS.

“Hyperscale, and the scalability and agility it provides, will be essential to foster such widescale growth and we are thrilled to be supporting businesses and Cloud Service Providers in the region with the services they require.”

The hyperscale superstructure sits on a system of seismic isolation mechanisms that is set to isolate the whole building from any seismic shifts and allow it to move as one.

The company said that the reason behind the build of the new facility is to satisfy the growing demand for cloud-based solutions in the Japanese market.

Quy Nguyen, VP Global Accounts & Solutions at Colt DCS  said, “While we are quite proud of our latest hyperscale facility, we are even more proud that we were able to deliver it in a responsible manner by ensuring the health and safety of our staff and contractors involved in the construction.

“By completing the site in a safe and timely manner, despite the pandemic disruptions of the last nine months, we are delighted to not only have delivered on our promise to clients but to our employees and partners as well.

“We fully expect that demand for our high-quality hyperscale facilities will continue to grow in the Japanese market on the strength of our best-in-class operations and design and delivery expertise.”
