Sakura Internet Inc.

The Ishikari Bay New Port area is an optimal location for suburban data centers.

Since 1996, we have been providing cloud and other Internet infrastructure services based on our own data center, which is currently used by over 430,000 customers. In November 2011, the largest data center in Japan was opened in the Ishikari Bay New Port area. By utilizing Hokkaido’s cool outside air for server cooling, we have reduced power consumption by about 40% compared to data centers in central Tokyo, achieving the world’s highest level of energy efficiency. The Ishikari Bay Shinko area is just a 30-minute drive from downtown Sapporo and a 50-minute drive from New Chitose Airport making it easily accessible despite Hokkaido’s massive area. It is also a safe location with low risk of disasters such as earthquakes and tsunamis. A large amount of power can be yielded from nearby transformer substations and power circuits that are connected by two dedicated lines on the Japan Sea side and the Pacific side providing a stable power and communication environment.
