Salesforce-SF30598LOGO-300x282Salesforce is establishing a second data center in Japan after signing an agreement with NEC to establish the new facility in the Kansai Region. NEC will be the service provider for the data center, which will support Salesforce’s growing customer base in Asia Pacific.

NEC says the facility will leverage leading design elements including on-site solar, free air cooling and NEC’s proprietary Phase Change Cooling Unit, a cooling method using principle absorbing heat when liquid evaporates.

Shinichi Koide, Salesforce Japan chief executive and chairman, says the second data center reflects the company’s commitment to Japan and Asia Pacific.
