Colt, an international carrier-neutral data centre provider, has announced that it has commenced construction of its second data centre in Inzai, on the grounds of Tokyo Data Centre 2 (TDC2). The new data centre is scheduled to open in the fourth quarter of 2017.
TDC2 began operations in 2011 to cater to demand from service providers driving the cloud market, and in response to the increasingly diverse applications associated with expanding cloud usage. Its facilities offer the highest levels of security and technical advancement in the industry, with 15MW of critical IT load across 5,000 square meters of server room space using state-of-the-art technologies to cater to increasing high-density customer requirements.

The Asian colocation market is particularly strong with analysts predicting growth in excess of 15%
Quy Nguyen, Vice President and Head of Data Centre Services Asia, commented: “The Asian colocation market is particularly strong with analysts predicting growth in excess of 15%, and as such, our new data centre in Japan is already fielding high demand in advance of its opening in 2017. Colt Data Centre Services is actively investing to meet the growing demand from various service providers. The TDC2 site is geared for future expansion as a multi-data centre complex and we will continue adding facilities in phases as we incorporate the latest technologies and equipment.”
This development follows the recently announced additions to Colt’s data centres in London, Berlin and Hamburg. These expansions are a result of unprecedented demand from both the cloud market and the enterprise colocation market.
Colt has been providing data centre services for over 15 years at 29 locations in fifteen countries around the world, recently making the headlines after becoming a market data provider for the Tokyo Commodity Exchange (TOCOM).
