NTT America, the US arm of the Japanese Telecommunications giant NTT Communications (NYSE:NTT, news, filings) has made its global virtualization services available in Singapore. The offering is aimed at large corporations that want to outsource their server environments, so that they can focus more on leveraging the computing power and less on the nuts and bolts of colocation, racks, blades, and the like.
The facility in question, the Singapore Premium Datacenter, is described by NTT America as a “purpose built facility and operates under some of the most stringent datacenter requirements in the country, including true 2N redundant power systems” and has connectivity to the rest of the region via six diverse submarine cable systems.
It’s somewhat interesting that NTT America is operating such infrastructure in Asia rather than its parent which is obviously closer geographically. I suppose it derives from the Verio assets, which give NTT America a deep background in hosting plus relationships with the right people across the US market.
