Enterprises are demanding increasingly complex and diversified ICT environments to digitally transform their businesses. In particular, companies require hybrid ICT environments that combine security and reliability for core tasks and flexibility and agility for artificial intelligence (AI), internet of things (IoT) and fintech technologies.
India is Asia's third-largest market for datacenter services, following only Japan and China, and market growth is averaging high annual rates of 25% to 30%. Datacenters are using increasingly more data as large IT providers launch new cloud services for mobile internet, e-commerce, IoT and big data. NTT Com, which offers Netmagic datacenters in Mumbai, Bangalore, Delhi (Noida) and Chennai, opened its India Bangalore 2 Data Center in 2014 and India Mumbai 5 Data Center (Mumbai DC5) in 2015.
Going forward, NTT Com will continue to strengthen its hybrid ICT solutions to support the digital transformations of customers in India.
