NTT Global Data Centers Americas was one of the early companies that helped to build what would one day become a multi-billion dollar global industry – data center colocation.
The company was founded in the year 2000 to solve a problem – currently available data center solutions were not enterprise grade. At that time, companies would try to build and run their own data centers, but they lacked the expertise, scale, and budget to succeed. The result was enterprise data centers that were unreliable, underpowered, and too expensive.
The NTT Global Data Centers Americas team set out to design, build and operate world-class, cost-effective data centers in which multiple tenants could have dedicated, secured deployments within a common facility. This model of companies “co-locating” their computing systems in a data center eventually became the data center colocation industry.
Over the years, the NTT Global Data Centers Americas colocation model has been refined and expanded to deliver large scale, build-to-suit wholesale data center solutions as well as private vaults, dedicated cages, and multi-rack deployments. The company is proud to have hundreds of the top enterprises as its customers, trusting NTT Global Data Centers Americas as the home of their critical IT systems. NTT Global Data Centers Americas has over 1,500,000 square feet of data center space in the United States, with 3,000,000 square feet of data center space in active development.
In 2014, RagingWire joined the NTT family of companies. NTT is one of the largest companies in the world with over $100 billion in revenue and 240,000 employees. NTT named NTT Global Data Centers Americas (formerly RagingWire Data Centers) as its data center platform in the United States and since fully funded NTT Global Data Centers Americas growth plan which includes expansions and new builds in the top data center markets in the U.S.
In addition, NTT Global Data Centers Americas became affiliated with NTT's network of 140 data centers around the world and can offer end to end, global data center solutions with consistent service levels, contracts, and pricing. Through its relationship with NTT, NTT Global Data Centers Americas is one of the most financially strong and largest providers of wholesale data centers in the world.
