Yahoo Japan announced the site in April 2018.
This will be Yahoo Japan’s second infrastructure project on foreign soil, following a 200-rack facility in Washington state in 2014.
The upcoming data center is considerably larger: expected to come online in spring next year, it will span 9,300 square meters, contain 1,600 racks, and will offer power capacity of up to 16MW.
Yahoo Japan, which was set up as a joint venture between Yahoo and SoftBank in 1996 and built Japan’s first web portal, is the only surviving Yahoo brand, after most of the company was sold to Verizon and renamed Oath last year.
For its latest facility, Yahoo Japan chose a site approximately 30 miles from Quincy, a location formerly favored by Yahoo for its American data centers, known for their distinctive Compute Coop shape. Read More at Datacenter Dynamics.
