OPTAGE, Inc., digital infrastructure and telecommunication company in Japan, today announced to build its Fifth Data Center ‘OPTAGE Sonezaki Data Center’ in Osaka, Japan. In recent years, many companies and municipalities in Japan have been using cloud services, and there is a growing demand for data centers that can communicate with cloud services with low latency. As a result, many of Japan's data centers are concentrated in Osaka and Tokyo due to low latency and easy access. In addition, disaster preparedness is important in Japan because of the high number of earthquakes that occur there, and more companies are using data centers in both Osaka and Tokyo. Until now, OPTAGE has operated multiple data centers in Osaka. This new data center location is close to access points of popular public cloud and Internet exchange and can communicate with low latency. Because the data center is carrier-neutral, services such as cloud, IX (Internet Exchange), and carriers are widely available.

  1. Connectivity Data centers with popular cloud and IX access points are within two miles. OPTAGE's highly reliable fiber optic links directly to these data centers, enabling clients to communicate with stability and low latency.
  2. Carrier Neutral Clients are not tied to a specific service provider (Telecommunications, ISPs, etc.), allowing for diversity and flexibility. In addition, data center providers can take advantage of OPTAGE's rich fiber optics to provide a variety of network services.
  3. Green Energy The non-fossil certificate with tracking will ensure that all electricity used by the data center is generated by natural resources such as solar, wind and water. We will actively work to reduce CO2 emissions and aim to become a carbon-neutral green data center that is environmentally friendly.
  4. High-Density The latest high-efficiency air conditioning system and optimal air flow design make it possible to handle high-density, high-load equipment. It is possible to flexibly change the system configuration as we anticipate that server performance and heat generation will continue to increase due to advances in IoT and AI.
  5. Safety and Security Seismic isolation design, redundant power supply systems, emergency generators that can operate continuously for more than 72 hours, and resident management 24 hours a day, 365 days a year provide stable services even in the unlikely event of a disaster.
