NTT is set to build a new, large-scale data center campus with 336MW of data center capacity. This new 103-acre campus is a strategic addition to a rapidly expanding portfolio and extends NTT Global Data Centers’ substantial presence in Northern Virginia.
To be built off John Marshall Highway in Prince William County, the new campus will become NTT’s largest single campus in North America, with the first two-story building opening by Q2 2024. Having more than two million square feet of data center space, the design will also offer dedicated self-contained areas for large-footprint deployments to support hyperscale clients.
“By 2025, it is estimated that 95% of new digital workloads will be deployed on cloud-native platforms, up from 30% in 2021. As a result, the demand for data centers to support this shift has never been higher. As one of the largest data center providers in the world, NTT is well placed to support this reliance, and we’re focused on supporting our customers as their needs continue to change,” said Masaaki Moribayashi, President and Board Director, NTT Ltd.
NTT is focused on creating highly available, secure, and sustainable infrastructure in Prince William County. In line with this, NTT is looking to ensure that its data center portfolio is entirely powered by renewable energy by 2030; enhancing its sustainable design standards and energy efficiency measures.
“The development of a new data center campus in Virginia is testament to our huge growth and momentum across North America”, says Doug Adams, President and CEO at NTT Ltd., Global Data Centers Americas.
NTT operates seven data center campuses across the US. In addition to its US campuses, NTT also recently announced the opening of its first data center location in Spain.
