Following the recent acquisition by Equinix Japan K.K, the Japanese subsidiary of Equinix, Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX), the global interconnection and data center company, Bit-isle Inc. continues to operate and expand its business under the new entity of Bit-isle Equinix Inc. starting this year.
As a result, we have become one of the largest interconnection and data center providers in the country, maintaining nine locations (10 locations from February) in Tokyo, and two locations in Osaka.
The 21st century is characterized by a high-tech, globally interconnected society. Technology has evolved drastically from the computers of the 1960s, the introduction of the personal computer in the '80s, and the global spread of the Internet from the '90s. Today, the wave of digitization has spread to every corner of our lives with the acceleration of mobile device usage, the rise of the Internet of Things, a shift to the cloud from traditional premise-based IT systems and ultra-high-speed financial transactions. It’s fair to say, that connectivity is, today, as important as utilities such as water and electricity -without it businesses will be left behind.
Data centers are playing a critical role because they are bringing the IT infrastructures of many different companies together. When companies are in the same facility, they can share data ultra-reliably within milliseconds, because it’s traveling across meters, not miles. The data center also provides a neutral convergence point for disparate types of network services and improves user experiences by bringing systems, applications and content closer to customers.
Bit-isle Equinix Inc. continues to grow as your partner to provide the most valuable infrastructure and services by offering advanced professional services and access to secure, scalable and highly interconnected data centers.
