New Data Center in Inzai City, Japan

MC Digital Realty said it has built the campus to meet the growing demand for scalable, flexible, and AI-ready data centers in the Tokyo metropolitan area. Reportedly, NRT12 features the same infrastructure as other data centers recently developed by MCDR in Japan – such as the nearby NRT10 in Inzai and KIX13 in Osaka.

NRT12 is designed to offer high-density power of up to 70 kilowatts (kW) per rack, the company said. It features Air-Assisted Liquid Cooling (AALC) technologies, low-latency networks, and high-speed connectivity that enable it to meet the demands of high-performance computing (HPC), machine learning, virtual reality, and augmented reality as well as AI/Generative AI workloads.

Additionally, the NRT campus offers Campus Connect, an interconnection service that allows customers to utilize infrastructure across multiple data centers on the campus as a single unit, facilitating efficient data exchange for AI and digital transformation initiatives.

"The launch of NRT12 marks a significant milestone for Digital Realty in Japan. This new data center, designed to world-class specifications, expands our capacity and strengthens our commitment to supporting the growing demand for AI-powered and scalable digital infrastructure in the Tokyo metropolitan area," according to Digital Realty.
