NTT Com is further subscribing for additional equity in Gyron to provide capital for planned expansion projects.

Gyron, an experienced provider of colocation and associated managed data center services, currently operates a 3MW data center near London. It is building two more, with a total additional capacity of 16MW, which will begin operating between late 2012 and early 2013.
