NEWS : Airtrunk’s New 300 MW Tokyo Data Centre Set To Be The Largest In APAC (Excluding China)

28 January 2021

AirTrunk, a hyperscale data center specialist, today announced it would be entering into the biggest data center market in Asia (excluding China) with a plan to construct a new 300+ megawatt (MW) hyperscale data center campus in Inzai, Tokyo. The initial ~60 MW phase of the campus is targeted to open in late 2021 to support anchor customer demand.

Set to be one of the largest independent data centers in Asia, 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. The data center is the company’s sixth in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region, bringing its platform to a total capacity of more than 750 MW across five tier one markets.

Founder and CEO of AirTrunk, Robin Khuda, said Japan is poised for a huge acceleration to the cloud.

“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 hyperscale data centers like TOK1.”
