Equinix Announces Another $43M Data Center in Tokyo

Equinix announced its newest data center expansion in Japan.  TY5, which is located near Tokyo’s financial district and in close proximity to the Japan Exchange and Tokyo Commodity Exchange, will provide a total capacity of 725 cabinets with 350 available in the first phase and 375 in the second. With 54,663 square foot of space, TY5 is located in a single tenant facility for improved design and physical security, with 24x7x365 security officers and CCTV. Scheduled to open in Q1 2016, it is being built in close proximity to TY3 to streamline operations.

“TY5 will be built in response to the various demands being driven by the digital economy across the cloud, mobile and financial services industries. As Tokyo is a major international finance center that houses some of the world’s largest investment banks, trading platforms and insurance companies, it is important that we provide the necessary interconnection services to meet these increasing demands. The new TY5 data center will do just that, as customers will have direct access to Equinix’s established financial ecosystem in TY3," stated Kei Furuta, managing director, Equinix Japan.
