NTT Opens New Data Center in South Africa to Support Growing Digital Economy

NTT Ltd. | October 27, 2022

NTT Ltd., a leading IT infrastructure and services company, today announced the opening of its latest data center in Johannesburg, South Africa. Johannesburg 1 Data Center is part of NTT’s expansion into the African continent with a capacity of 12MW covering 6,000m² of IT space once fully built out. The technical infrastructure is supported by N+1 uninterruptible power supply systems (UPS), N+1 generator backup, and highly redundant cooling systems. This will provide clients with dedicated sustainable infrastructure, operational control and the design flexibility required to support their high-performance needs. The facility will cater to hyperscalers and enterprises, providing them with an opportunity to use NTT’s full ICT stack of services, including managed hybrid cloud, network management, collaboration, security, and application monitoring. Africa is experiencing a digital boom, with a population expected to double by 2050. Estimates show that 615 million users in sub-Saharan Africa will subscribe to mobile services by 2025, a 24% increase from 2020. This growth and reliance on technology is fueling digital transformation initiatives and demand for high-performing data center space. NTT is planning to accelerate its data center footprint in Johannesburg and other African cities to support this growth over the next several years. The new facility uses a closed-loop chilled water system with air-cooled chillers, meaning that the water running through the cooling systems isn’t evaporated. This reduces the threat of potential drought water restrictions and allows the data center to achieve low power usage effectiveness (PUE) and water usage effectiveness (WUE). “We’re incredibly proud to be investing in Johannesburg and extending our global data center footprint to South Africa. The country forms a significant part of NTT’s growth strategy as we continue to support Africa’s digital transformation. The opening of Johannesburg 1 will contribute towards the economic growth and social development of the region, as our clients shape the country of tomorrow.” Florian Winkler, CEO, Global Data Centers EMEA, NTT Ltd “Our presence in Africa is underpinned by the significant digital change we’re seeing across the continent. Companies providing new digital services need data center space with high power density, global connectivity, carrier neutrality, cloud network access, and on-site support to ensure they can continue to grow,” added Michael Abendanon, Head of MEA, Global Data Centers EMEA, NTT Ltd. NTT is recognized as one of the leading data center businesses with recent openings in Madrid, Jakarta, Navi Mumbai, and Berlin, with further expansions planned in Ho Chi Minh City, Prince William County, Virginia and Cyberjaya. The data centers will align with NTT’s commitment to achieve net-zero emissions across its data center operations by 2030 and the complete value chain by 2040. NTT is focused on ensuring its portfolio is powered by renewable energy by 2030 and that it applies energy efficiency measures where required. About NTT Ltd.

We have experienced first-hand the rising demand and growth potential in the German market, and this is a fantastic next step for us. Our combined locations, ethos and ambition are all the right ingredients, and we’re very excited to be joining AtlasEdge.” DC1’s continued development and expansion strategy will be critical to meet the high levels of demand for colocation across Germany, and AtlasEdge expects to make significant additional investments across the country in this regard.

Spectra Logic and iRODS Consortium Partner to Provide Glacier-Like Tier of Storage for Data-Driven Organizations

Spectra Logic | September 26, 2022

Spectra Logic, a global leader in data management and data storage solutions, today announced a collaboration with the iRODS Consortium to create a joint solution built upon Spectra Vail® software, Spectra BlackPearl® S3 storage and the iRODS data management platform. The combined solution enables customers to use industry-standard cloud interfaces for on-premises disk and on-premises glacier* storage with object tape, while unlocking multi-site/multi-cloud capabilities.
