Japanese technology giant NTT has announced the opening of its latest data center campus, Noida 2, in India. The campus, which covers an area of six acres, is situated in the Noida data center corridor within the Delhi National Capital Region (NCR). This new facility is set to bolster NTT’s existing global data center capabilities.
According to senior executives, the Noida 2 campus is designed with a planned capacity of 52.8 MW critical IT load, distributed across two data centers. It is a carrier-neutral site, providing interconnectivity with NTT’s other data center locations. This setup is aimed at ensuring minimal latency and offering access to major public cloud providers.
While talking to reporters in New Delhi, NTT officials outlined that the campus incorporates high automation levels for monitoring and managing its performance, focusing on efficient use of power and water resources.
“India is a priority region in our global strategic roadmap of consistent capacity expansion in existing and new data center markets,” said Doug Adams, CEO and President of NTT Global Data Centers & Submarine Cable.
“With this new site we reaffirm our commitment to delivering reliable infrastructure that can support the demands of our clients’ digital transformation ambitions around the globe,” Adams said.
NTT Noida data center to support a 22.4 MW IT load
The company informed that the first operational data center on this campus is designed to support a 22.4 MW IT load and spans approximately 300,000 square feet (about 28,000 square meters). A key feature of this campus is the inclusion of seismic dampers, aimed at ensuring operational continuity during seismic events.
Shekhar Sharma, CEO & MD, NTT GDC India & NTT Com India Network Services said that launch of new campus in Noida is a significant milestone in NTT’s growth journey in India.
“The launch of our new campus in Noida is a significant milestone in our growth journey in India,” said Sharma.
“Clients will now be able to access our trusted data center services, from an interconnected campus in North India. As India’s digital economy accelerates towards the one trillion-dollar milestone, we will continue to provide the infrastructure for this growth,” he said.
With the inauguration of the Noida 2 campus, NTT’s Global Data Centers division has increased its presence in India, now totalling more than 268 MW across 18 data centers located in Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Chennai, and Bengaluru.
This includes the recent addition of the Mumbai 9 data center in their Central Mumbai campus. These facilities collectively cover an area of over 3.1 million square feet (approximately 290,000 square meters), offering scalable infrastructure solutions supported by NTT’s managed services.
The company has also incorporated advanced cooling technologies, like liquid immersion cooling and direct liquid cooling, in its data centers. These technologies are essential for supporting the deployment of modern AI and high-performance computing platforms.
The company stressed that this expansion is fully aligned with the increasing demand for digital infrastructure services, particularly in rapidly developing regions like India.
