Recently, you may have noticed Digital Realty increasing its penetration into APAC. While the region boasts some of the most connected places in the world and is leading the way on innovative technologies like 5G, it is also home to many of the billion “unconnected” people in the world today. Adding more facilities in the region is an opportunity to better serve our increasingly global customer base.
Now, with the launch of MC Digital Realty, a joint venture with Mitsubishi Corporation, we are pleased that our footprint in APAC has grown again, and our ability to serve our customers has taken another leap forward. Combining the two companies' portfolios in Tokyo and Osaka, the two most important data centre markets in Japan, MC Digital Realty will aim to serve the increasing number of Japanese companies that are migrating their digital assets from on-premises data centres to third party cloud providers.
This 50/50 partnership will leverage Digital Realty's expertise in data centre design, construction, and operation, and Mitsubishi's expertise in the Japanese real estate and IT industries. MC Digital Realty's facilities will provide data centre space, power, and interconnection services to a wide range of Japan's well-established, thriving companies.
