Global technology services provider NTT Ltd has announced its Global Data Centers Americas division is building a new data center campus in greater Phoenix. The new campus, slated to open in early 2022, will be the fourth U.S. market NTT has launched in since February 2021, growing its footprint from three to seven campuses.
Located in Mesa, just 30 minutes from downtown Phoenix and Phoenix Sky Harbor International airport, the 102-acre campus will have seven data centers offering a total of 240MW of critical IT load and 1.5MSF of space, along with an on-site dedicated substation. The first data center will offer 36MW across six 6MW vaults and 126KSF of data floor space, suitable for deployments of all sizes.
The Phoenix data center market’s growth makes it one of the most dynamic in the country, and it’s poised for even more growth in the coming years.
Mesa is attracting data center providers and high-tech manufacturers from all over the world with more than 1,000 acres of shovel-ready property, a streamlined entitlement process, and competitive Foreign Trade Zone.
The Phoenix campus will be built to LEED Certified specifications for Core and Shell, signaling NTT controls the design and construction of the entire mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection system. This design will conserve energy and reduce water usage at each of the data centers. Renewable energy options will also be available for clients looking to further decrease their environmental impact.
The campus will offer access to multiple leading public, private, and hybrid cloud providers and will utilize air-cooled chillers with airside economizers. Phoenix clients will be supported 24x7x365 by highly trained, in-house staff experts in operations, facilities management, security, and shipping and receiving. The data centers will offer plenty of on-site amenities, including business-ready conference rooms, a break room with a dedicated lounge and kitchen area, hoteling stations with ergonomic workstations, Wi-Fi, and on-site parking.
