TY15 will act as a magnet to continually draw new partners into Equinix’s ecosystem, allowing service providers to accelerate their expansion journey.
Equinix, a leading digital infrastructure company, has announced its fifteenth International Business Exchange data center in Tokyo, Japan named TY15. In addition to strengthening connections for international cloud and network service providers, the new data center will incorporate sustainability into its design to satisfy growing interconnection demand and advance enterprises’ digital objectives.
TY15 is located adjacent to the existing network and cloud dense IBX campus in Tokyo. TY15 is anticipated to improve connection for businesses as well as cloud and network service providers globally, helping them to expand and enhance Japan’s Digital Economy.
The first phase of TY15, which is slated to open in H2 2024, will offer a starting capacity of roughly 1,200 cabinets and a total of 3,700 cabinets when entirely built out. TY15 will become the top location in Tokyo for connectivity because of its closeness and direct fiber connectivity to TY2.
The Equinix ecosystem includes support for major cloud service providers like Amazon Web Services, Alibaba Cloud, Oracle Cloud, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, and IBM Cloud; and the new TY15 will offer more room for growth and draw new cloud service providers to the Japanese market.
Additionally, the recently launched multipoint-to-multipoint data center connectivity using Equinix Fabric’s Ethernet-switched LAN (E-LAN) technology will make it simple and affordable for organizations to combine their IT infrastructure. Instead of establishing point-to-point connections, service providers can connect their whole global footprint via a shared network.
Most importantly, sustainability will be incorporated into the TY15 IBX’s design, and will be achieved through the use of cutting-edge technology including free cooling and magnetic bearing chillers. To cut overall energy consumption, Equinix data centers implement green auxiliary features as cold/hot aisle containment, high-temperature chilled water set points, DCIM, and motion-activated LED lighting.
These actions support the Japanese government’s environmental, and sustainability aim of achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
Japan is stepping up its efforts to maintain its digital competitiveness. There seem to be sufficient chances for cloud and network service providers as the digital appetite of Japanese businesses continues to surge.
