The company’s Berlin 1 campus, which is located in Berlin-Spandau and has been operational since 2007, will be complimented by a second building. The additional building will add 2,500 square meters of IT space and 5 MW of IT load. The new building will be ready for service in Q3 of 2021. Florian Winkler, CEO, NTT Global Data Centers, EMEA, said,
“We are looking forward to future growth in Berlin’s vibrant and diverse digital industry. Thus, the Berlin 2 campus is designed to serve all types of client needs from the local start-up looking for a pre-installed single rack, all the way up to built-to-suit solutions for major hyperscaler deployments. The project launch also comes at the right time to complement the growth at our existing Berlin 1 site.”
