NTT Completes Phase 1 of Frankfurt 4 Data Center via e-Shelter
FRANKFURT, GERMANY — NTT Communications Corporation, the ICT solutions and international communications business within the NTT Group, has announced the completion of phase 1 of its Frankfurt 4 Data Center through e-shelter, a subsidiary of NTT Com and one of the leading data center providers in Europe. Frankfurt 4 is the 12th operational data center location in the e-shelter portfolio.
Frankfurt 4 is located in Hattersheim in the south-west of the city. Once fully built out, the new campus features 24,000 sqm of IT space and 80 MW of IT load across five data center buildings, supporting high density requirements.
The latest expansion further strengthens e-shelter’s market leading position in Frankfurt which is one of the fastest growing data center hotspots in Europe. The Hattersheim campus is located approximately 10 km linear distance from the existing e-shelter sites, Frankfurt 1 and Frankfurt 3 and therefore enables customers to seamlessly grow in the region and split deployments over multiple data center campuses to maximize redundancy and reliability.
The new site offers carrier-neutral colocation services, is connected to e-shelter’s e-connect platform and provides access to multiple carriers and major cloud providers as well as to the world’s largest internet exchange DE-CIX. Frankfurt 4 customers will have access to the e-shelter innovation lab, which allows customers and partners to test drive and validate cutting edge technology solutions and IT deployments in a live data center environment.
Rupprecht Rittweger, CEO of e-shelter commented, “Phase 1 of Frankfurt 4 was built in less than 12 months with significant capacity being rented to customers in advance of the opening. Frankfurt 4 strengthens our position as market leader leveraging a total capacity of more than 400 MVA in Europe with more than 300 MVA available in the Frankfurt region.”
Frankfurt 4 is part of the powerful and scalable NTT Com’s global data center network and connectivity ecosystem. Besides Frankfurt 4, e-shelter’s current key expansion projects include developments in Amsterdam, Berlin, London and Madrid.
