Vantage Data Centers has broken ground on its first data center campus in Japan (KIX1). Located in Ibaraki, Osaka, the greenfield campus will include up to 68 MW of capacity to support cloud and high-density deployments, offering hyperscalers and cloud providers flexibility and scalability to meet evolving market needs. Strategically located in the north of Osaka, the 45,000 square meter campus will comprise two data centers with seismic base-isolation structures, Vantage announced this week.

Sustainable Design and Scalable Capacity

The first facility will include 28 MW of IT load and is scheduled to be operational in early 2026. Vantage said the Osaka Data Center campus will be constructed in accordance with its “sustainable by design” blueprint for industry-leading energy efficiency.

The ceremony, known as Jichinsai, was conducted with traditional Shinto rituals aimed at sanctifying the land and invoking safety throughout construction.
