High-performance computing on-demand and tailored colocation services are markets that the company says it is now addressing through its Osaka facility.
Realty (NYSE: DLR) has launched its global data centre offering
PlatformDIGITAL at its new Osaka, Japan data centre, with tailored colocation
solutions also offered there.
Also at the Digital Osaka 2 (KIX11) data centre, the company has announced its first Japanese retail colocation customer, XTREME-D, which offers high-performance computing (HPC) services on-demand.
Integrating Digital Osaka 2 with the global PlatformDIGITAL
offering provides customers with access to the full Digital Realty partner
community in a carrier-neutral facility. The Osaka facility has also adopted
Secured by Design principles, offering customers a location that is able to
meet the growing demand for highly secure and reliable infrastructure.
And Digital Osaka 2 is the first location in Asia Pacific where Digital Realty will provide customers both PlatformDIGITAL enterprise solutions and productised colocation offerings, including precision air-cooling to support high-density deployments, diverse and redundant 77kV 50MVA utility power supplies, cabinet sizes from 42U to 52U/cages starting at 100 sq ft and private suites that are fully customisable.
On the new customer side, XTREME-D will be leasing strategic
colocation space through MC Digital Realty, a 50/50 joint venture between
Mitsubishi Corporation and Digital Realty.
XTREME-D will launch its new on-demand services using
Digital Realty’s physical infrastructure to extend its own supercomputing
infrastructure as-a-service (IaaS), starting in April 2020.

MC Digital Realty operates two data centres in Osaka in a
connected campus that brings together critical data centre, network, cloud and
connectivity providers under a single, secure environment.
By utilising Digital Realty infrastructure to provide access
to its supercomputing capability, XTREME-D can now easily expand its resources
as needed via the flexible and stable provisioning of services, said Digital
Mark Smith, managing director for Asia Pacific at Digital
Realty, said: “Japan is a thriving commercial and colocation hub and will
be a great gateway for us to bring our productised colocation services to the
rest of Japan and the wider region.”
Last year, MC Digital Realty announced its Tokyo Connected
Campus @ Inzai development roadmap, which includes a new 36MW data centre
expected to be operational by late 2021.
The proposed development will be followed by another 36MW
data centre, a 30MW facility and an 18MW data centre – delivering more than
120MW of total IT capacity.
Digital Realty just reached agreement with Clise Properties to acquire a 49% ownership interest in the Westin Building Exchange in Seattle, Washington, US for an undisclosed sum. It is said to be the sixth most densely interconnected facility in North America.
