The $70 million first phase of TY11 provides a capacity of 950 cabinets and colocation space of approximately 39,800 square feet. Upon completion of the planned future phases, the facility is expected to provide a total capacity of more than 3,500 cabinets and colocation space of more than 153,800 square feet (approximately 14,300 square meters), becoming the largest IBX data center to date in Japan.

Equinix now operates a total of 11 data centers in Tokyo and two in Osaka. In close proximity to the Tokyo central business district, the TY11 IBX data center will enable CSPs to move their services closer to their customers at the digital edge via Platform Equinix and provide the highest quality of interconnection and data center services to ensure seamless, consistent and secure data transfer.

TY11 is situated in Ariake, a district in Koto ward, which is close to key venues for the upcoming Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. Further, TY11 customers will realize significant energy savings and reductions of their CO2 footprint through the use of energy-efficient lighting systems, adaptive control systems that reduces power consumption and increases cooling capacity through active airflow management, as well as cold aisle containment that reduces energy consumption and enhances cooling.

TY11 offers a wide range of connectivity options, including Equinix Cloud Exchange Fabric (ECX Fabric), which allows businesses to set up on-demand and secure connections to more than 1,500 participants across all regions around the world.
