Tokyo, where NTT is headquartered, is known to experience some of the most powerful earthquakes on the planet. That’s one of the reasons why NTT has dedicated much research and resources toward building seismically stable data centers that can protect clients’ important, sensitive equipment in the event of a strong earthquake.

Now, we’re bringing our proven construction model for earthquake-resistant data centers to Silicon Valley by building a four-story, 16MW data center in Santa Clara. The building will be set on a base isolation system that will be the first of its kind for data centers in the region.

Opening in early 2021, this new Silicon Valley SV1 data center will provide clients with a state-of-the-art presence in a global tech hub, while also connecting them to NTT's platform of 160 data centers across 20 countries and regions around the world.
