Leading data centre firm Colt Data Centre Services has announced the acquisition of a site in Osaka, Japan that will host its first hyperscale data centre in the region.

Colt said in its press release that it plans to begin construction of the new facility later this year to cater to Osaka’s growing position as deputy to Tokyo’s data centre hub.

"The acquisition of the site and our continued focus and investment in Japan is being driven by our hyperscale customers who are in need of large capacity requirements and require reliable and scalable solutions,” said Richard Wellbrock, Vice President of Real Estate at Colt, in the firm’s press release.

“We are confident that our track record of building and delivering hyperscale facilities will be able to support the influx of cloud service providers in the country as they continue to expand their operations. The Osaka site acquisition is yet another step forward for us in significantly strengthening our foothold in APAC as well as being testament that our land banking strategy remains solid."

The Osaka facility will be Colt’s third hyperscale data centre in Japan, joining the two situated near Tokyo, and is set to offer customers bilingual in-house teams for the provision of management services and support.
