Digital Realty has broken ground on a new data center outside Tokyo, Japan, marking its third data center at the NRT campus in Inzai, Chiba prefecture. This new 31MW facility, known as NRT14, will be configurable to support private AI deployments at densities up to 70kW per rack via air-assisted liquid cooling.

"The addition of NRT14 to our NRT campus will further our ability to deliver robust and flexible AI-ready data center environments to support customers' digital transformation and innovation goals,” said Kosei Hatakeyama, representative director and CEO of MC Digital Realty. “The construction demonstrates our commitment to the continued development of our NRT campus to ensure we are meeting the ever-evolving needs of our customers and the broader industry in Japan."

Serene Nah, managing director and head of Asia Pacific for Digital Realty, added: "Japan's rapidly increasing demand for AI deployments creates the need for scalable, flexible, and highly connected AI-ready data centers in the Tokyo metropolitan area. We believe NRT14's next-generation data center infrastructure and Digital Realty's connected global open data center platform provide the foundational pillars our customers need to drive innovation in the coming years."
