NTT Global Data Centers, the third largest carrier-neutral data center operator globally, today announced an 18-month plan to increase its data center operations by 20%, adding 300 megawatts of critical IT load to its capacity, which will bring its total portfolio to 6.5 million sqft (600k sqm) of floor space in over 20 countries. NTT Global Data Centers has facilities in EMEA (particularly Europe and Africa), North America, and Asia-Pacific, with a focus on serving enterprise and hyperscale clients globally. Below we breakdown where NTT is adding this data center capacity around the world.

Americas – NTT Global Data Centers

Recent Progress

Since the beginning of 2020, NTT has opened three new data center campuses in the U.S. markets of Hillsboro, Oregon; Santa Clara, California; and Chicago, Illinois. Specifically, these Americas facilities are:

  • Hillsboro, Oregon: HI1 data center comprises 36 megawatts of critical IT load across 138k sqft
  • Santa Clara, California: SV1 data center comprises 16 megawatts of critical IT load across 160k sqft
  • Chicago, Illinois: CH1 data center comprises 36 megawatts of critical IT load across 126k sqft

Expansion Plans

While NTT does not explicitly state its capacity expansions in the Americas, the company highlights further development potential at its data center campuses in Ashburn, Virginia; Hillsboro, Oregon; and Phoenix, Arizona.

Ashburn, Virginia

NTT is building-out its Ashburn VA5 data center which is set to open with 32 megawatts of critical IT load later in 2021. Notably, Ashburn VA5 is NTT’s fifth of nine planned data centers on its 224-megawatt campus in Ashburn, Virginia.

Hillsboro, Oregon

NTT’s Hillsboro, Oregon campus has the potential to reach 126 megawatts of critical IT load, across five buildings, totaling 1 million sqft of space. While NTT’s HI1 data center is now open, HI2 and HI3 (which will be physically connected) could begin their developments.

Phoenix, Arizona

At full build-out, NTT’s Phoenix campus will comprise 240 megawatts of critical IT load across 1.5 million sqft of space. Notably, in May 2021, NTT broke ground on Phase 1 of the campus, Phoenix PH1. This facility will have 36 megawatts of critical IT load with completion set for 2022.
