NTT Communications Corporation, the ICT solutions and international communications business within the NTT Group, completed phase 1 of its Frankfurt 4 Data Center through e-shelter, a subsidiary of NTT Com. Frankfurt 4 is located in Hattersheim in the south-west of the city. By completing its 12th operational data center location, e-shelter strengthens its market-leading position in Frankfurt.
“Phase 1 of Frankfurt 4 was built in less than 12 months with significant capacity being rented to customers in advance of the opening. Frankfurt 4 strengthens our position as market leader leveraging a total capacity of more than 400 MVA in Europe with more than 300 MVA available in the Frankfurt region,” said Rupprecht Rittweger, CEO of e-shelter.
Once fully built out, the new campus features 24,000 sqm of IT space and 80 MW of IT load across five data center buildings. The campus is located approximately 10 km linear distance from the existing e-shelter sites, Frankfurt 1 and Frankfurt 3. The location is convenient for its customers as it helps them grow in the region and split deployments over multiple data center campuses. The customers can, thus maximize redundancy and reliability.
Another highlight is that the Hattersheim campus offers carrier-neutral colocation services. According to the company, it is connected to e-shelter’s e-connect platform and provides access to multiple carriers and major cloud providers as well as to the world’s largest internet exchange DE-CIX. Additionally, customers will have access to the e-shelter innovation lab. It gives an opportunity for customers and partners to test drive and validate cutting edge technology solutions and IT deployments in a live data center environment.
