Global IT infrastructure and services company NTT has announced the launch of a new data centre campus, Noida 2, and the opening of its first data centre on the campus.
Spanning six acres, the campus will support a planned capacity of 52.8 MW critical IT load in two data centres.
The campus is in Noida’s data centre corridor within the Delhi National Capital Region (NCR), one of India’s largest and fastest-growing economic centres. It is carrier neutral, interconnected with NTT’s other data centre locations for minimal latency and offers seamless access to top-tier public cloud providers.
Its advanced features include high levels of automation that monitor and optimise facility performance and resources like power and water.
The first data centre, delivered this week, will support 22.4 MW IT load with an area of approximately 28,000 square metres. NTT says this is the first data centre campus in India to incorporate seismic dampers, ensuring uninterrupted operations even during significant seismic events.
NTT’s Global Data Centres division has now expanded its India footprint to more than 265 MW with 18 data centres across Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Chennai and Bengaluru.
NTT Global Data Centres employs advanced liquid cooling technologies, such as liquid immersion cooling and direct liquid cooling, ensuring clients can deploy the latest AI and high performance computer platforms in its data centres.
This news underlines continuing Indian data centre expansion, and the growing importance of the Indian market for many major players. As Doug Adams, CEO and President, NTT Global Data Centres & Submarine Cable, puts it: “India is a priority region in our global strategic roadmap of consistent capacity expansion in existing and new data centre markets.”
