STACK Expands APAC Footprint with 36MW Data Center Campus in Inzai, Japan

After the company’s entrance to the APAC market with the opening of its Singapore regional headquarters, STACK Infrastructure has planned to develop a 36MW data center campus in Inzai, Japan. The project will begin construction in the second quarter of 2022, with capacity projected to be delivered in the fourth quarter of 2023.

STACK’s new Inzai data center campus in Japan will consist of two buildings with a combined critical capacity of 36MW. It will be strategically positioned in a Tokyo neighborhood that has witnessed considerable hyperscale data center expansion. Each building will have 18MW of power and different access points to support many users, as well as security and service separation.

By linking to regional substations powered by Tokyo Electric Power Company, the new data center facility will provide scalability and redundancy. The campus will provide hyperscale and enterprise clients a facility that is intended to accommodate increasing rack density and floor loading specs. It would reflect the changing requirements in Inzai and the APAC region more broadly, with opportunities for prospective campus growth beyond the initial 36MW.

“STACK’s expansion into Japan exemplifies our focus on establishing a scalable presence in markets that are strategically important to our clients,” said Pithambar (Preet) Gona, STACK’s Chief Executive Officer – APAC. “The decision to enter Japan, a critical location for hyperscale customers, demonstrates STACK’s ability to leverage our partnership model, capital, expertise and ability to attract leading talent in the industry to the STACK platform.”
