Sean Lawrence, chief executive officer, ABN AMRO Clearing, Tokyo: “Equinix has been the perfect choice for us with its extensive reach in Asia-Pacific, and its track record of providing the highest quality services consistently through its global platform. We are excited to see Equinix expand its capabilities at their Ōtemachi site to meet the growing requirements for ourselves and our clients. Japan is the natural connection point between Asia and North America with multiple cable systems connecting the regions. The unique Equinix model with access to more than 70 carriers and network providers locally, and direct access to cable systems is unparalleled in Japan, which makes it the natural choice for multi-venue trading strategies, not only within Japan but between North America, Asia and Australia.”
Kei Furuta, managing director, Equinix Japan K.K.: “The opening of our fourth data center in Tokyo is in response to the ongoing high demand for interconnectivity, efficient space and power capacity we are experiencing from customers in the region. We already have some of the world’s leading financial services firms, network providers, and cloud companies located in our existing facilities in Japan who are benefitting greatly from access to our established ecosystems within Platform Equinix. Our expanded presence in the market with TY4 further strengthens our twin-metro strategy, following our announcement last month to open our first data center in Osaka in the fourth quarter of this year. Customers in Tokyo will be able to benefit from access to sites in the two locations and take advantage of what the market has to offer.”
