by Justin Hughes
TOKYO, JAPAN — NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com) announced that it will establish the NTT Global Data Centers Preparatory Corporation as the first step in creating a wholly owned subsidiary to comprehensively handle data center construction, asset management and wholesale services for NTT Group companies on a global basis. The company will respond to rapidly growing demands for data centers across countries worldwide and further strengthen data center-related business within the group. NTT Com will launch the preparatory company by the end of this year. Moving forward, the envisioned data center “investment company” is expected to begin constructing data centers from April 2019.
Specifically, the preparatory company will integrate the NTT Group’s special expertise in data center-related real estate and finance, forming a new data center business structure for faster decision-making and more efficient investment in data center construction. Initially, the NTT Global Data Centers Preparatory Corporation will form the ground for unifying NTT Com’s global investments in data center construction and asset management.
Afterwards, the envisioned data center investment company will allow NTT Com to develop globally unified strategies and specifications in addition to providing services to customers as the core of the NTT Group’s data center business. The company will also enable NTT Com to centralize its own worldwide data center businesses to satisfy the demands of NTT Com customers for globally unified and standardized services.
Moving forward, NTT Com plans to accelerate its investment in data center business, especially in the United States, Europe and APAC including Japan, by responding more flexibly to the scale and speed of services required by customers.
