After consolidating its various brands last year under the NTT brand name, the technology services conglomerate NTT Ltd. has now officially launched its NTT Global Data Centers division, which incorporates e-shelter, Gyron, Netmagic, NTT Indonesia Nexcenter, RagingWire and other data center companies that formerly sat under the NTT Communications brand.

This new NTT division operates one of the largest data center platforms in the world, now with over 160 data centers spanning more than 20 countries and regions. It provides NTT Group clients and partners with access to a digital ecosystem with global reach and local expertise.

In the U.S., the global data centers platform has operations in key markets such as Ashburn (VA), Sacramento (CA) and Dallas (TX), with expansion plans already in place for Silicon Valley (CA), Chicago (IL) and Hillsboro (OR).

In APAC, the platform locations include Tokyo, Osaka, Hong Kong, Singapore, Cyberjaya, Bangkok and Jakarta.

In EMEA, locations include London, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Berlin, Munich, Vienna, Zurich, Madrid, and Johannesburg.

In India, NTT Ltd. has significant data center operations in Mumbai, Bangalore, Noida, and Chennai. The Japanese tech giant has announced plans this week to invest more than $1.5 billion in its India-based data center presence over the next four years. This significant investment is part of NTT’s $7 billion global commitment to further expand its data center business.

“We understand the core challenges our clients grapple with today as they move along the road of digital transformation,” said Ryuichi Matsuo, Executive Vice President for NTT Ltd.’s Global Data Centers division. “Having one data center partner covering their global requirements makes it easier for clients to reach their business objectives, in a time where huge growth in cloud and data usage is creating a growing demand for data center capacity. So, we are bringing together our global data center businesses into one entity, offering a comprehensive end-to-end stack of data center solutions and services to support our clients’ demands.”

NTT Ltd. also has class-leading expertise in cutting edge cooling and customizable data center technologies. Most importantly, NTT Ltd. brings a unique blend of end-to-end full stack capabilities, including networking and carrier network interconnection, hybrid cloud capabilities and lifecycle management services.
