The first data center will provide 28MW of IT capacity and is scheduled to be operational by early 2026. Other details have not been shared.

“This groundbreaking marks our first campus in Osaka and entrance into the robust data center market in Japan. Vantage is pleased to provide critical IT infrastructure to support Japan’s digitalization powered by cloud and AI innovations,” said Raymond Tong, president of Vantage APAC.

He added: “We look forward to serving hyperscale and enterprise customers in the Greater Osaka area and being part of the local community.”
