Aruba’s 30MW Roman data centre campus nears completion

New ‘Hyper Cloud Data Centre’ in Rome will be the capital’s largest when building completes in early 2023.

Aruba S.p.A, the largest Italian Cloud provider and the leading company for data center, web hosting, email, certified email (PEC) and domain registration services says that its Hyper Cloud Data Center (IT4) currently being constructed in Rome will be completed in the first quarter of 2023. The campus is set to be the largest data centre in Italy’s capital.

Aruba’s Hyper Cloud Data Center (IT4) is sat within a fully owned 74,000 m² site. At full capacity the campus will comprise five independent data centres of 6 MW each, totalling 30 MW of IT power and a redundancy level of 2N or higher and 100 Gbit/s backbone links between Aruba Data Centers and major Neutral Access Points.

Situated in central Italy within the area of Tecnopolo Tiburtino (East Rome), the colossal project will extend Italy's most technologically advanced data centre network and enhance the company’s ability to offer hyperscale solutions to customers. Aruba will continue to provide both the private and public sectors with colocation, cloud and hybrid solutions, while maintaining the company’s prerogatives of sustainability, security and infrastructure resilience.

Like all the data centres in Aruba’s network, the Hyper Cloud Data Center will meet highest levels of infrastructure quality, taking advantage of the best solutions available to minimise overall impact on the environment. The campus itself will be entirely environmentally friendly, thanks to the use of energy produced from 100 percent renewable sources, certified at the European level through Guarantee of Origin (GO Certification) and self-produced on site thanks to the presence of photovoltaic systems and the use of efficiency-optimised cooling (free-cooling).

Once completed, the data centre will join the ranks of Aruba’s already extensive network, which includes the Global Cloud Data Center – Aruba’s flagship campus in Ponte San Pietro, Bergamo –, two data centres in Arezzo, one in Ktiš (Czech Republic) and additional partner facilities across the UK, Germany, France, the Czech Republic and Poland.

"Tapping into the latest technologies to improve sustainability is a priority for the entire data centre industry. The work on our new hub in Rome is helping guide this priority, further consolidating us as one of the top European providers of enterprise-grade IT services as well as an operator of the most modern and environmentally friendly data centre network in Italy” said Alessandro Bruschini, Head of Infrastructure at Aruba. “The Hyper Cloud Data Center will work in close synergy with the entire Aruba data centre network and help expand our presence and enhance our connectivity in key European regions."
