Hyperscale data center specialist, AirTrunk announced its plan for APAC’s largest data center in Inzai, Tokyo. The first phase that supports nearly 60 MW is targeted to open in late 2021 to support anchor customer demand. AirTrunk TOK1 will be scalable to over 300 MW, allowing public cloud customers the ability to scale rapidly to support their growing capacity requirements in Japan.
300+ megawatt hyper-scale data center
AirTrunk TOK1 is the company’s sixth in the APAC region, bringing its platform to a total capacity of more than 750 MW across five markets. TOK1 will include seven buildings across more than 13 hectares. Located in Inzai’s data center hub, the carrier-neutral data center will provide strong international and domestic connectivity. AirTrunk’s efficient design will result in an ultra-low power usage effectiveness of 1.15. Robin Khuda, Founder and CEO of AirTrunk said,
“Japan is a highly developed market with strong international connectivity, underpinning its position as a technology and data center hub in Asia. The rapid increase of cloud adoption in Japan will be enabled by critical infrastructure, including hyper-scale data centers like TOK1.
