NTT is massively expanding its data center capacities worldwide and has now opened its first data center location in the Spanish market.

The high-availability, Tier 3-compliant colocation data center is located on NTT's Európolis Business and Technology Park site 20km northwest of Madrid. It provides hyperscalers as well as enterprise clients with 3,600m2 of IT space and a maximum IT capacity of 6.3MW when fully built out.

"The demand for data center capacity in Spain has grown strongly in recent years. Madrid is the largest data center hub in Spain and a European gateway to the world, and our investment in the region is another milestone on our global roadmap as we continue to expand our presence across the continent to meet the coverage, capacity, and connectivity needs of our clients," said Florian Winkler, CEO of NTT Ltd.’s Global Data Centers division in EMEA.

Putting a highly available, secure, and sustainable infrastructure as a priority, at the Madrid site, the entire cooling concept of the data center was adapted to the warm climate of central Spain: air-cooled chillers and higher cooling water temperatures reduce power consumption and ensure efficient operation of the facility.

In fact, NTT’s first major client installation in the facility is powered entirely by renewable energy.

Companies will benefit from excellent connectivity as NTT's proprietary Global Data Center Interconnect (GDCI) network structure makes it easy and fast to implement high-performance private connections to internet nodes such as ESpanix, NetIX, and DE-CIX, as well as cloud providers like AWS, Google, Microsoft, and others. Through Lyntia's fiber network, connections exist to 2,694 cities in Spain, to interconnects in France and Portugal, and to major submarine cables. In addition, fiber links exist to NTT's Global IP Network (GIN) as well as Colt IQ, euNetworks, GTT, and other international and regional providers.

"Spain has become a hub for communications in southern Europe in recent years, in part due to new submarine cables", added Araceli Pedraza, Country Managing Director at NTT Ltd. in Spain. "With our new data center in Madrid, we are actively shaping the digital future of the region. Here, companies will find a reliable, secure, and sustainable home for IT infrastructures. At the same time, comprehensive connectivity ensures maximum flexibility."
