Article Written by Avery Phillips

Here's how it works, and what's in store as cloud services continue to advance.

Grazed from Aruba S.p.A

Aruba S.p.A., a leader in data center, cloud, web hosting, email, certified email (PEC) and domain registration services, has announced the construction of its new Hyper Cloud Data Center in Rome in a press conference today. The launch of its fourth Italian data center - and the ninth for the whole European network - will complete Aruba's project to create a modern ecological network of data centers in the country.  The new data center in Rome (called IT4) will help Aruba consolidate its position as an enterprise level IT service provider, thanks to its unique network of existing data centers spread across the Italian peninsula. It will offer US and international corporations a foundation for their IT infrastructure in Italy. 

The new data center will be built in the Tecnopolo Tiburtino area in Rome and is expected to be completed by Spring 2020. Although it will be similar to the one Aruba opened last year in Milan, it will become the benchmark for Italian companies and others across Europe. Already in the planning stages, the project for the new data center will receive an investment of around 300 million Euros over the course of five years.
