LAUNCHES UK-HEADQUARTERED CLOUD COMMUNICATIONS DIVISION
Japanese global data center provider NTT Ltd, has just completed the shell of its second building within its Munich 2 (MUC2) data center campus, Bavaria.
Once the facility is fully built and goes online as scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2020, the campus will then provide around 6,200 square meters of IT space and 14MW of IT load capacity for clients.
MUC2 expansion is part of the growth strategy of the recently formed Global Data Centers division of NTT Ltd which boasts of operating one of the world’s largest data center platforms, currently having over 160 data centers and span more than 20 countries and regions.
“We are constantly expanding and investing in new facilities across our regions. The Munich area is the economical and digital hub of Southern Germany and a strong economical powerhouse. Our client base in the region is constantly growing and our existing clients have a strong demand for additional data center capacity,” said Florian Winkler, CEO of EMEA at the Global Data Centers division.
Few days earlier, the company launched its new Cloud Communications division which is headquartered in the UK. Previously known as Arkadin, the Cloud Communications division will continue to provide cloud-based Workplace consulting services.
Under the leadership of Mark Alexander, the company announced that Dr. Fiona Lodge and Jean Turgeon will work closely with the existing regional and go-to-market teams to drive the strategic evolution of NTT Ltd.’s cloud communications solutions.
“We’re delighted to have Fiona and Jean as part of the Cloud Communications team. Both bring a wealth of knowledge, expertise and experience which will help the division continue to provide best-in-class solutions, partnerships, assessments and consultations to customers on their digital transformation journeys towards an intelligent workplace,” said Mark Alexander, CEO of Cloud Communications, NTT Ltd.
The Cloud Communications division is expected to maintain its relationship with its fully owned subsidiary, Applicable Limited, a provider of Cloud Unified Communications and enterprise voice services with offices in Bristol (UK), Brisbane (AUS) and Houston (USA).
