Stack Infrastructure and ESR have expanded their APAC data centre partnership into Japan.

The two firms have agreed to develop 72MW data centre campus of three buildings in Osaka’s eastern suburb of Keihanna. The first building is expected to begin in the fourth quarter of next year and will be ready for service in the second quarter of 2025.

The Stack and ESR’s APAC partnership currently includes a 48MW data centre development in Incheon, Korea.

Pithambar Gona, CEO of Stack APAC, said: “Osaka is Stack’s sixth APAC market in 12 months since our entrance into the region, including the expansion of our footprint in both Japan and Australia to over 100MW each.

“This campus further deepens our partnership with ESR, allowing us to combine our capabilities to meet our clients’ strategic requirements in existing and emerging Tier 1 data centre markets.”

“ESR’s strong regional development capability in Tier 1 data centre markets ensures we are well-positioned to continue to aggressively develop data centre facilities across Asia Pacific,”

“Our partnership with STACK enables us to leverage our respective strengths to target hyperscale customer growth in key markets.”
