NTT Communications Corp., subsidiary of one of the largest telecoms in the world Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corp., has announced it will build two new data centers in Asia and launch a new connectivity service. The new facilities and the connectivity offering, which will offer seamless connectivity between multiple core NTT data centers, are both part of the company's new expansion strategy in the region.

The new data centers will be located in Vietnam and in Singapore. NTT Com's marketing push will be focused on "multinationals with multi-hub operations in Asia," according to a news release.

"We help multinational companies establish footholds and grow their businesses in Asia by offering them robust data centers, uniformly consistent network services, an expanding range of cloud services and expert local presence in individual Asian markets," Katsumi Nakata, NTT's executive vice president for global strategy, said in a statement.

The Vietnam data center will be located in Ho Chi Minh. It is scheduled to launch in third quarter of 2011. The facility, NTT's second in the country, will be designed, built and operated by Global Data Service JSC, a joint venture between NTT and the government-owned Vietnam Posts and Telecommunications Group, the nation's largest telecom.

The company's existing Vietnam data center, called Thang Long, is located in Hanoi.

The Singapore data center, slated to come online in the first quarter of 2012, will be located in Serangoon. It will be built and operated by NTT Worldwide Telecommunications Corp. ÔÇô NTT's data center procurement and management business. The company plans to obtain a LEED certification for this facility from the US Green Building Council.

The new Inter-Data Center Connectivity Service will be offering seamless connectivity between core NTT data centers in Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan and US through the company's own high-capacity backbone.
