NTT has launched a new building at its data center campus in Vienna, Austria.
“Our third data center at our Vienna 1 site is successfully operational,” the company said on LinkedIn this week. “With building C, we're expanding our data center capabilities by an additional 5.3MW of IT capacity across 2,800 sqm (30,150 sq ft) of highly available, scalable IT space once fully built out.”
The expansion was first announced in October 2021 and takes the site to 8,600 sqm (92,500 sq ft) and 15.2MW of capacity.
NTT acquired the Austrian data center in 2015 when it acquired German firm e-shelter from US equity firm ABRY and Investa Holding, a real estate firm controlled by e-shelter CEO Rupprecht Rittweger. Along with Vienna, NTT took over facilities in Berlin, Hamburg, Frankfurt, and Munich, Germany, as well as a data center in Zurich, Switzerland. NTT retired the e-shelter brand in 2019.
Building B at the Vienna facility opened in November 2019. The site is also home to bees on the roofs of the data centers.
