The $43 million facility is tailor-made to provide financial services firms, cloud and content providers with data center and interconnection services
Equinox the data center company, today announced the opening of its latest International Business Exchange™ (IBX®) data center in the Japanese capital, Tokyo, known as TY5. The new $43 million facility will support strong demand from local and global enterprises including financial services firms, as well as cloud and content providers who are increasingly relying on data center colocation and interconnection services in Tokyo.
Earlier this month Equinox announced that it will open four new IBX data centers in Dallas, São Paulo, Sydney and Tokyo, to create more capacity for global companies to connect to their partners, customers and employees. These additions with the recent acquisition of Bit-isle in Japan and Telecopy in EMEA will expand Equinox’s global interconnection platform to nearly 150 data centers by the end of the year.
The company claims that these recent developments have doubled Equinox’s footprint in the country. These developments also boost the Equinox presence in Asia-Pacific, which is the company’s fastest growing region.
According to research by Forrester, the data center market in Japan is forecasted to reach $14.2 billion in 2016. The new TY5 datacenter will help Equinox to meet these demands.
