NTT has announced the opening of two new data centers in Illinois and Oregon for enterprise customers.

NTT, a world-leading global technology services provider, has announced the opening of two new 36 megawatt (MW) data centers in Chicago in Illinois and Hillsboro in Oregon.

The new Chicago and Hillsboro data centers were unveiled during a virtual launch event. This marks the first two of four data center openings expected for the Americas region this year, with a completely new Silicon Valley campus and a planned expansion in Ashburn, Virginia.

Doug Adams, NTT’s CEO for the Global Data Centers division in the Americas, said: “2021 is going to be a year like no other for our division and opening these two new data centers is just the beginning. Not only will we continue to expand both the Hillsboro and Chicago campuses, but we’re also looking forward to our new Silicon Valley campus, expansion in Ashburn, as well as breaking ground in Phoenix.

“These efforts underline our commitment to put our clients at the center and bring data center services to key data center markets across the Americas.”

Both Hillsboro and Chicago are the first data centers to open at the two new campus locations with plans to expand the Chicago campus to 72MW and the Hillsboro campus to 126MW. These new additions join three other existing campus locations in the Americas region, including Sacramento in California, Dallas in Texas and Ashburn in Virginia.

Ryuichi Matsuo, NTT’s Executive Vice President for the Global Data Centers division, said: “We’re excited about the strength our Global Data Centers division brings to our NTT clients and partners.

“NTT delivers premium data center platforms around the world, giving our clients the power to deploy advanced services at the right place, with the right performance and support.

“NTT’s capabilities and expertise are the foundation for thousands of successful business initiatives. The full stack services in our data centers are critical to our overall infrastructure, and we’re not slowing down. In 2021, we’ll continue to expand in Indonesia, Germany, UK and Spain as well as in the Americas.”

The 36MW Chicago data center sits on a 19-acre campus just 25 minutes from the O’Hare International Airport. When finished, the campus will feature two data centers providing 72MW of critical IT load. For national enterprises, hyperscale cloud and IT services firms seeking to add centralized data center capacity to power recent, latency-sensitive workloads, Chicago is a prime location for their demanding requirements.

The 36 MW Hillsboro data center is situated on a 47-acre campus at the heart of the Pacific Northwest technology hub and offers organizations the ability to meet sustainability goals with optional carbon-neutral IT and 100% renewable energy options. When the entire campus build is completed, it will deliver 126MW of capacity with more than one million square feet of data center space.
