NTT Ltd, a leading global technology services provider, has announced the launch of its new Global Data Centers division, which incorporates e-shelter, Gyron, Netmagic, NTT Indonesia Nexcenter, RagingWire and other data centre companies that formerly sat under the NTT Communications brand.
The division operates one of the largest data centre platforms in the world with over 160 data centres spanning more than 20 countries and regions and providing NTT Group clients and partners with access to a powerful digital ecosystem with global reach and local expertise.
“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 centre 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 centre capacity. So, we are bringing together our global data centre businesses into one entity, offering a comprehensive end-to-end stack of data centre solutions and services to support our clients’ demands.”
Courtney Munroe, Group Vice President of Global Telecommunications Research at IDC, added: “NTT Ltd’s launch of its newly consolidated Global Data Centers division will provide a competitive boost to the entity. NTT Ltd is one of the largest global providers and it is perhaps the world’s leading data centre provider outside North America, with an industry leading presence in key metro markets around the world.
“NTT Ltd also has class-leading expertise in cutting edge cooling and customisable data centre 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. NTT Ltd is ideally positioned to serve global hyperscale entities, as well as enterprises seeking a comprehensive one-stop solution.”
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.
NTT Ltd has vast expertise in building technologically advanced data centres with low total cost of ownership (TCO) and high redundancy. NTT Ltd’s global presence supports and enables end-to-end solutions while offering flexibility for clients to balance their critical IT load across various locations.
