NTT DETAILS PLANS TO BUILD SEVENTH DATA CENTRE CAMPUS

PRESS RELEASE: Phoenix, Arizona, USA – NTT Ltd., a global technology services provider, announced that its Global Data Centers Americas division is building a new data centre campus in Phoenix, Arizona – a strategic addition to a rapidly expanding portfolio. With recently opened campuses in Chicago, Ill., Hillsboro, Ore., and Santa Clara, Calif., the new Phoenix campus, slated to open in early 2022, will be the fourth U.S. market NTT has launched in since February 2021, growing its footprint from three to seven campuses.

President and Board Director for NTT Ltd., Masaaki Moribayashi said, “We are pleased to take this next step in our U.S. expansion plans with a new Phoenix campus. We’re continuing to show all of our clients who would like to accelerate their business growth through digital transformation that we’re committed to growing our global portfolio to better serve them and their business goals.”

Located in Mesa, Arizona, just 30 minutes from downtown Phoenix and Phoenix Sky Harbor International airport, the 102-acre campus will have seven data centres offering a total of 240 megawatts (MW) of critical IT load and 1.5 million sq. ft. of space, along with an on-site dedicated substation. The first data centre will offer 36MW across six 6MW vaults and 126,000 sq. ft. of data floor space, suitable for deployments of all sizes.

The Phoenix data centre market’s growth makes it one of the most dynamic in the country, and it’s poised for even more growth in the coming years.

CEO for the Global Data Centers Americas division of NTT Ltd., Doug Adams said, “The number of clients and major providers currently in the region, or set to be there soon, speaks to the fact that Phoenix has become a real data centre destination. We want to have a presence in the markets that make the most sense for our clients – Phoenix stood out as one of those markets, and the city of Mesa, in particular, was the perfect fit.

Mesa is attracting data centre providers and high-tech manufacturers from all over the world with more than 1,000 acres of shovel-ready property, a streamlined entitlement process, and competitive Foreign Trade Zone.

Mesa is becoming one of the nation’s premier strategic hubs for companies like NTT, thanks to our affordable power and robust fibre network,” said Mesa Mayor John Giles. “NTT has made an excellent decision in selecting our Elliot Road Tech corridor as the home for their new data centre campus.”

NTT’s presence in the region will support the growing data centre market, which is bringing jobs and economic benefits to Arizona.

We are excited to welcome NTT to Arizona,” said Sandra Watson, President & CEO of the Arizona Commerce Authority. “We’re grateful they chose Mesa and look forward to their future success as a part of Arizona’s thriving data centre ecosystem.”

The Phoenix campus will be built to LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified specifications for Core and Shell, signalling NTT controls the design and construction of the entire mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection system. This design will conserve energy and reduce water usage at each of the data centres. LEED is the most widely used green building rating system, and building to these standards highlights NTT’s commitment to design and develop efficient data centres. Renewable energy options will also be available for clients looking to further decrease their environmental impact.
