Data Center Services Provider Aruba to Make Major Investment in Italian Data Center
June 13, 2018
Data center services provider Aruba is set to make a major investment in a data center in Italy. Aruba, which has headquarters in Ponte San Pietro in Italy, was established in 1994. Alongside data center services the company offers traditional hosting options, domain registration, ecommerce, cloud computing and disaster recovery services. The new ‘hyper cloud’ data center will be in Rome and built at a cost of 300 million euros ($352.94). The new facility will be Aruba’s fourth in Italy and its ninth across Europe.
Built in Tecnopolo Tiburtino in Rome, the facility will mirror the center the company opened in Milan, Italy in 2017. The new facility’s construction is expected to be completed by late 2020. Named ‘IT4’ it will offer 74,000 square meters of floor space and receive a “rating 4 certification in accordance with the ANSI/TIA 942-A standard”. Aruba’s Italian centers will become part of a European network that takes in the Czech Republic, Italy, France, Germany, Poland and the UK.
“Our goal has always been to respond to our customers’ requirements, and we have already done this by creating the Global Cloud Data Center near Milan, in order to meet the needs of customers which want to address Italian and European markets using our DCs to host their services,” said Stefano Cecconi, CEO of Aruba S.p.A. “We now want to do the same with the Rome Data Center in response to the demands of the international corporations looking to have their base in Italy. It’s an essential part of the development of our European and national network of data centers.”
