The high-speed, high-quality networks connecting the new facility with other NTT Com data centers will enable the low-cost, low-latency access necessary to effectively provide a hybrid cloud environment that combines on-premise systems, colocation and NTT Com's Enterprise Cloud to better meet varied customer demand and optimize ICT systems. In addition, the high-speed connections between Gyron's three Hemel Hempstead data centers will allow them to operate essentially as one data center, making it fast and easy to provide more server equipment and virtual servers for customers expanding their business.
In the UK, the data center market grew by more than 20% in 2012 compared to the previous year due to strong demand from the technology, media and telecom industries. The demand for hybrid cloud services has likewise been growing and global service providers such as Salesforce.com have increasingly chosen NTT Com's UK data centers. The new facility at Hemel Hempstead will enable NTT Com to meet the demand of this active market.
