NTT Ltd. consolidates data centre firms into global unit

Written by Tue 21 Jan 2020

Over 160 data centres across more than 20 countries and regions under the unit’s remit

London-based NTT Ltd. has formed a new division incorporating the data centre companies that previously sat under NTT Communications.

NTT Ltd. was formed after Japanese telecommunications giant NTT Corp. consolidated NTT Communications and two other of its key IT businesses into a single $11bn (£8.7bn) entity, making it Japan’s largest IT company.

The IT provider’s newly-formed Global Data Centers division incorporates e-shelter, Gyron, Netmagic, NTT Indonesia Nexcenter, RagingWire and others.

Over 160 data centres across more than 20 countries and regions are under the unit’s remit, making the division one of the largest data centre platforms in the world.

NTT Ltd. said the platform will help NTT Group clients and partners access a “powerful digital ecosystem with global reach and local expertise.”

“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,” said Ryuichi Matsuo, executive VP for NTT Ltd.’s Global Data Centers division.

“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,” he said.

Clients will have access to full-stack technology solutions (from data centre and network infrastructure to applications) and full-lifecycle services (from consultancy to fit-out services to ongoing management) with end-to-end managed services.

The new division consists of four regions covering the Americas, APAC, EMEA and India. In EMEA, locations include London, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Berlin, Munich, Vienna, Zurich, Madrid, and Johannesburg.

NTT Ltd. was formed in July 2019 after NTT Corp. combined NTT Communications, Dimension Data and NTT Security into one US $11 billion (£8.7bn) business.
