The Inzai area is a diluvial plateau consisting of a strong foundation, with no major active faults nearby, a distance of approximately 20 km from Tokyo Bay, and an extremely low risk of natural disasters such as earthquakes and flooding. In recent years, the importance of interconnections among Internet service providers has been increasing due to the spread of cloud services, faster access lines, and the expansion of network operations by service providers. By using multifeed IX connection services, SCSK enables efficient connection for customers, and contributes to improving connection quality and reducing costs. In addition, as a system integrator with extensive experience not only in data center services but also in system development, infrastructure construction, and operation for enterprises, SCSK will contribute to the sustainable enhancement of corporate value for service users.
