DiData aims to quadruple data centre business to $US4 billion

This comes merely hours after the firm’s announcement to acquire California-based Nexus for an undisclosed sum – a move that expands DiData’s operations in the US by 40 per cent

Dimension Data (DiData) expects to quadruple the size of its datacentre business to US$4 billion in the next five years through a combination of organic growth and relevant acquisitions.

DiData believes its existing US$1 billion datacentre business and access to a significant set of datacentre assets across its parent company, the Nippon Telegraph and Telephone (NTT) Group, differentiates the business. The NTT Group operates around 243 datacentres globally.

“Although all our markets are targeting exponential growth, our analysis shows there’ll be higher rates of growth in mature regions such as Europe and North America, given the legacy data centre investments in those geographies that require transformation. For many organisations, the most cost effective way of navigating the future will be through IT-as-a-service, managed services, and outsourcing,” said Steve Joubert, group executive for the datacentre business unit.

This comes merely hours after the firm’s announcement to acquire California-based Nexus for an undisclosed sum - a move that expands DiData’s operations in the US by 40 per cent.

Earlier this year, the firm also acquired NextiraOne, a company that designs, installs, maintains, and supports business solutions and communications services for private and public sector clients. The company has 1,850 employees in Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain and the United Kingdom.

Currently Dimension Data operates 12 public Cloud locations around the world with further locations planned to be online in the next few quarters. The company extends its cloud locations through its OneCloud partners, and also has access to NTT’s data application and workload capabilities in solutions and services around SAP.

“This, coupled with our investment in people, process, and management capabilities focused on managing the next-generation datacentre, gives us a massive advantage in the market,” Joubert said.

Specific details on how the growth in the datacentre business might affect group revenues and profits were not disclosed.
