Monday, May 3, 2021 - 7:52am

It is also interesting to ntoe that Osaka has a long history, as the capital in olden times, and also as a gateway for international exchange.

Key Points: 
  • It is also interesting to ntoe that Osaka has a long history, as the capital in olden times, and also as a gateway for international exchange.
  • In October 2020, AirTrunk announced a new 300 MW hyperscale data centre in Tokyo.\nEven as the demand is increasing in the interiors of Japan, companies are a bit hesitant when it comes to setting up data centres.
  • What is the marketshare of hyperscale versus colocation providers versus local organisations?\nSeifi is of the view that the Japan data centre market is dominated by international cloud providers such as Amazon.
  • "Japan is strong in wind power and is also the second largest PV market after China," said Tay.\nJapan has substantial coastline and has enormous potential in offshore wind.
