KDDI will invest US$270 million (28 billion yen) in building two new TELEHOUSE data centers in Tokyo and Osaka. The company cites a growing demand for data center space in Japan.
TELEHOUSE OSAKA 2 and TELEHOUSE TOKYO Tama 3 are scheduled to open in August 2015 and February 2016 respectively. TELEHOUSE Osaka 2, in the center of Osaka city, will offer 700 racks of tenancy space with up to 30kVA (designed) per rack. Both facilities will offer high-density colocation services enabling the hosting of heavy load IT infrastructure.

The five storey building will offer 1,300 racks of tenancy space with up to 42kVA (designed) power supply to racks, the highest in Japan and 5 times industry average, with a designed PUE 1.31 making it one of the most energy efficient data centers in Japan.
