Infotech Lead Asia: NTT Communications (NTT Com) will offer a range of data center services in Russia through a subsidiary of NTT Com – NTT Communications Russia.
NTT Communications Russia will serve the Russian market via IXcellerate’s Moscow One carrier-neutral data center in Moscow, beginning with colocation services in May, this year.
IXcellerate’s newly completed facility offers premium enterprise-class data center services in a top-quality environment for customers to locate telecom, Internet and IT infrastructure.
NTT Com Russia will focus on integrating and expanding its network, cloud and hosting services in the Russian market by combining the potential of this facility along with Moscow’s substantial broadband coverage, strategic geographical position and financial weight.
Tetsuo Sano, general director of NTT Com Russia, said that it was a natural decision for NTT Com to link their network and services with IXcellerate’s new high-quality facility. The company will now be able to cater to the large influx of corporate and content-rich media companies who require bandwidth to handle their surging data traffic.
Cliff Gauntlett, chief operating officer of IXcellerate, said, “With a network covering most of the globe, the presence of NTT Com Russia in our new Moscow One facility, along with other premium carriers and network providers, means we can provide exceptional connectivity options for our customers.”
“The demand for premium, enterprise-class outsourced IT services in Moscow is clear; our partnership with NTT Com Russia will enable Moscow’s dynamic business community to secure the very best in data center services whilst achieving greater efficiencies and cost-savings through the effective hosting, management and day-to-day running of their IT,” Gauntlett added.
Recently Sakura Tower, an office building in Myanmar, approached NTT Communications to provide ICT infrastructure and support to enable its tenants to enjoy a high-quality Internet environment.
