NTT Ltd launches global data centres division

23 Jan 2020

NTT Ltd has created a new data centres division that includes several data centre companies that were formerly grouped under NTT Communications.

The new Global Data Centres division includes e-shelter, Gyron, Netmagic, NTT Indonesia Nexcenter, and RagingWire, as part of 160 data centres across 20 countries and regions around the world.

The new Global Data Centres division, under the leadership of executive vice president Ryuichi Matsuo, consists of four regions that cover Americas, APAC, EMEA and India. 

According to NTT, 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 also says it 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 whilst offering flexibility for clients to balance their critical IT load across various locations.

NTT Global Data Centres division executive vice president Ryuichi Matsuo says that NTT understands the challenges customers face as they progress through digital transformation.

“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.”

NTT has named leaders who will run the regional data centre affiliated companies. They are: Doug Adams (Americas), Takahiro Nagata (APAC), Florian Winkler (EMEA) and Sharad Sanghi (India). 

IDC Group vice president of global telecommunications research, Courtney Munroe, adds “NTT Ltd.’s launch of its newly consolidated Global Data Centres 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,” says Munroe.

NTT Corporation amalgamated 28 subsidiary companies into a single business, named NTT Ltd, in 2019.
