The new campus will have close to100MW of critical IT capacity across two phases of 48.5MW each. The 33,000 sq m campus is located in Saitama City, a commercial centre 30km north of central Tokyo. PDG has already secured the land and power with construction set to begin in Q4 2021.
Established in 2017, PDG has data centres in China, Singapore, Indonesia and India with an existing portfolio of 18 facilities based across 12 cities. Japan is the fifth market that the company has entered and suggests it is well on its way to creating “an unrivalled footprint in Asia” with a 600MW portfolio.
Tokyo is the largest data centre market in Asia outside of China yet according to PDG, it is still in the early phases of growth particularly in terms of global hyperscalers. According to Structure Research, Greater Tokyo’s hyperscale colocation market is expected to reach $1.6 billion by 2025.
