Equinix opened its latest International Business Exchange data center in Tokyo, known as TY5.
The new $43 million facility will support strong demand from local and global enterprises including financial services firms, as well as cloud and content provider.
Earlier this month, Equinix announced that it will open four new IBX data centers in Dallas, São Paulo, Sydney and Tokyo.
The company expects its new move and recent acquisition of Bit-isle in Japan and Telecity in EMEA will expand its global interconnection platform to nearly 150 data centers by the end of the year.
According to research by Forrester, the data center market in Japan is forecasted to reach $14.2 billion in 2016.
