NTT’s Global Data Centers division is expanding its worldwide co-location data centre platform with new facilities across key markets such as India, the United Kingdom, Japan, the United States, Germany, Malaysia and Indonesia.

This will add to NTT’s platform of over 500,000 sqm of colocation space across 160 data centres located in more than 20 countries and regions. 

“All our new data centres will be set up for clients to use renewable energy if they choose, as NTT invests in a sustainable future for our planet,” said Masaaki Moribayashi, NTT SEVP for services

When fully complete, the new data centres will provide over 400 megawatts (MW) of IT load across these markets.

NTT will go live with its new Mumbai 7 Data Center by the third quarter 2020 in its Chandivali campus. It will offer 25 MW of IT load, bringing the total at the Chandivali campus to three data centres at 61 MW.

In the  UK, the London 1 Data Center is scheduled to open also in the third quarter. It is capable of 64 MW at full buildout, with 8 MW available at the facility’s opening, and will interconnect with five existing data centres around London to deliver over 100 MW of IT load when fully completed.

In Japan, NTT Communications will complete a new data centre that will be operational in the third quarter as well.

In the US, NTT is pre-leasing space now at its first data centre campus in Hillsboro, Oregon, that will open also in the third quarter with the first 6 MW. It will eventually hold five data centres totaling 144 MW.

Additionally, in Ashburn, Virginia, NTT is building its fifth data centre — the two-story Ashburn 5 Data Center that will offer 32 MW, with 8 MW ready in the third quarter. This will bring Ashburn’s footprint to 108 MW.

In Germany, NTT has completed the shell of its second building within the Munich 2 Data Center campus, scheduled to go online in the fourth quarter this year with 14 MW.

NTT is building its fifth data centre in Malaysia at its Cyberjaya campus, with 5.6 MW coming online also in the fourth quarter.

In the first quarter of 2021, NTT expects to bring online in Chicago the first 6 MW from a pair of two-story 36 MW buildings will total 72 MW of scalable critical IT load at full buildout.

Within the first semester of 2021, NTT new campus in Bekasi, Indonesia, will open what is expected to be the largest data centre in the country, with 45 MW.

NTT also has plans in place for next year to develop new data centres in Johannesburg, Silicon Valley, Madrid, and Phoenix, as well as building additional capacity in Mumbai, London, Vienna, Zurich, Berlin and Frankfurt.
