e-shelter was founded in 2000 and quickly established itself as a leading provider of data centers in Germany. With the consolidation of 31 subsidiaries under the new brand of NTT Ltd., e-shelter, Gyron and NTT's other data center affiliates across the globe have been brought together to operate as the new data center division of NTT. This new data center division is now the third largest global data center provider, operating more than 160 data centers in the Americas, APAC, EMEA and India regions.
We, as Global Data Centers EMEA, now operate in eighteen data center locations within Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, and are currently expanding into other European locations. Around 800 people from a wide range of specialist areas and cultures now work for us and contribute to the company's ongoing success.
Our data center solutions and services have expanded as well. As technology continues to evolve and organizations confront both new challenges and opportunities, we continue to be an effective partner with our “Home to the cloud” ecosystem. We offer unique opportunities to bring clients together with well-established technology partners, system integrators and start-ups to innovate with cloud technology and other complex IT applications.
