In early March, Equinix opened its latest data center in Tokyo (TY5). Here’s a sneak peek at both the inside and outside of this state-of-the-art data center.
Situated near the existing TY3 IBX data center as well as Tokyo’s financial district, Equinix TY5 is a four-story purpose built facility, built to withstand earthquakes.
TY5 and the other nine existing data centers owned by Equinix and Bit-isle in Tokyo offer colocation and interconnection, providing customers access to 70+ NSPs, CSPs and leading regional internet exchanges like JPIX and JPNAP.
TY5 is designed to meet the growing demands from financial services firms, cloud and content providers, and provides a full range of premium colocation, interconnection and support services to the greater Tokyo area.
