Colocation

Colocation makes exceptional business sense. The economies of scale achieved in a purpose-built data centre far outweigh the benefits of trying to keep it all under your own roof.  It’s cost-effective and offers you high performance, reliability, availability, security, flexibility and service levels.

You leverage hosting of world-class quality to colocate your IT applications, networking equipment and business continuity solutions with 140 data centres globally.

From simple space and power requirements to an array of managed hosting services, choose the right option for you according to your needs for management and internal IT staff and skills. We’re a global one-stop provider with the option of additional services you need now or may need in the future.

NTT ICT’s data centres have been built to the highest industry standards and fitted with advanced security and performance features. They meet Tier III requirements as classified by the Uptime Institute and are directly connected to our industry-leading IPv6 compliant, Tier 1, global IP network backbone. With infrastructure engineered to a minimum of fully redundant N+1 or N+N standards, we ensure business continuity and the availability of your IT systems with no single point of failure. Advanced cooling and humidity control provide an optimal environment for server infrastructure.
