NTT Data in Berlin: Third Data Centre to Meet Booming Demand

NTT Data commits to a third data centre campus in Berlin to establish a core data centre hub in Germany, amid its efforts to tackle rising customer demand

The city of Berlin in Germany is fast-emerging as a major European data centre hub on account of rising client demand. 

NTT Data aims to capitalise on this growth and strengthen its presence across EMEA with a third data centre campus in Berlin. The expansion plans to support a capacity of 96MW of critical IT load across two data centres.

The company currently operates 48 data centres across seven countries in the EMEA region, with more than 429MW of critical IT load. Additionally, NTT Data also recently announced new data centre campuses in Virginia, United States and Chennai, India.

Growing a larger European data centre presence

With the new Berlin campus, the company’s focus is to provide additional capacity by expanding its Tier 1 and Tier 2 markets in Europe. Expanding data centre presence in Berlin aims to serve this purpose, in addition to building a new site in partnership with local authorities and stakeholders.

“Berlin is an important market in our growing portfolio and expansion plans,” says Doug Adams, Chief Executive Officer and President of NTT Global Data Centers. "This new development strengthens our presence and paves the way for further entry into Tier 2 markets, facilitating our sustained growth and leadership in the data centre industry as we continue to meet our clients’ needs.” 

This year has seen NTT Data invest further into crucial sites, having recently entered the Paris data centre market to better meet customer needs and upscale its data centre growth across Europe. 

Furthermore, NTT Data recently announced an AI data centre partnership with Schneider Electric aiming to co-innovate a solution that combines Edge, Private 5G, the Internet of Things (IoT) and modular data centres to better enable connectivity.

The joint offering introduces a unique solution to support the compute demands of gen AI applications that are deployed at the edge.

These efforts to expand across Europe are part of NTT’s US$10bn global investment into data centre growth over the next ten years. NTT Data has committed to meet growing demands for data usage and computation, particularly as it expands its use of generative AI (Gen AI).

Likewise, the company aims to achieve net zero emissions across all its operations by 2030, which includes sourcing 100% renewable energy.

NTT Data is a multinational IT services company based in Japan and is a partially-owned subsidiary of NTT. The organisation is focused on providing its customers with an edge-to-cloud networking ecosystem to make multi-cloud workloads less complex. NTT also offers tailored innovation opportunities and infrastructure that aims to ensure secure and scalable data centre practices.
