With a site area of 8,747 sqm and a capacity of 20MW, the facility's capacity, when combined with the extended Inzai campus reaches nearly 70MW. The company shared that the new facility has already been 100%  pre-let.

Niclas Sanfridsson, CEO Colt DCS said that the expansion within Inzai City is part of the company's long-term strategy to provide "scalable growth" for its customers. "We are trusted by our customers to effectively build their digital infrastructure, as well as manage and operate their data centre with their scalability needs in mind," Sanfridsson said. 

Sanfridsson went on to explain that they see the expansion as an "exciting opportunity" to deepen Colt's digital footprint and increase its IT capacity within the region. "Colt DCS' customer-centricity has always been at the heart of our operations and growth strategy, and we look forward to continuing our ethos with Inzai 4 –the fifth hyperscale data centre Colt DCS has built in Japan," he added. 

Takashi Nakai, General Manager of the Financial Business Division of Mitsui & Co. said: "The launch of Inzai 4 is testament to the service and operation that Colt DCS offer, and highlights them as a trusted data centre operator. We're delighted that our partnership with Fidelity Investments encompasses the launch of Inzai 4, and we're excited to see how this new hyperscale data centre can help to further serve the data centre needs of businesses worldwide."

Meanwhile, Ellen Hall, Fidelity's Head of Direct Real Estate, said: "The announcement of Inzai 4 is a prime example of our strong partnership with Mitsui and Colt DCS. The new data centre is a great opportunity for Colt DCS to extend their reach within Japan as well as the wider APAC region. We are proud to be working on such an exciting and expansive project within the market."
