Data Center located in the center of Japan

Japanese users do not exist only in Tokyo. About 90 percent of the population lives outside of Tokyo. There are many users in west Japan such as Osaka and Aichi. Gifu Prefecture, where MiraiNet Datacenter is located, is in the center of Japan and is optimum for covering users nationwide. Famous sites of Japan are nearby. For example, it takes 40 minutes to Kyoto by train and 100 minutes to Mt. Fuji.

Service for Japanese users should be in Japan

Japanese users strongly desire the accessed server be located in Japan. This is due to the delay caused by using submarine cable and with a vague anxiety about country risk in foreign nations. Especially, the gaming industry in which delay is a critical issue, and in business fields handling confidential information places importance of locating a server inside Japan.

The world's first* footbath in a DC

*Sufficient research has not been conducted but probably it is the world's first.

"KURAUDO NO YU" heals the engineers who fight at the forefront of cloud computing


Ogaki city of Gifu is known as the "City of Water" since ancient times with an abundance of underground water at a stable temperature throughout the year. This cold groundwater is utilized for air conditioning in the server room at MiraiNet Datacenter Park, introducing a system for reducing electric power consumption. Warmed groundwater is then utilized for the footbath, "KURAUDO NO YU", in the refreshing room for engineers' refreshment.

To do business in japan

The best choice when an office is needed in Japan

Located next to Softopia Japan, the IT hub in Gifu Easy to install office functions


Office function is an important factor for companies when selecting a data center in Japan for placing engineers. Data centers in a suburban area have no offices in the neighborhood, and office rent is expensive near data centers in a large city. Our data center is adjacent to "Softpia Japan", the IT hub and direct fiber-optic connection to each room is possible. It is an ideal location for establishing an office using a Japanese data center at a reasonable rent compared to large cities. Furthermore, human resources and companies for operation and maintenance are concentrated in the IT hub, and the communication infrastructure is established as a hub for connecting large cities in the east and west.
