Aruba's 30MW data centre campus will be the largest in Rome

Aruba has announced that its new 30MW Italian site - which, when complete, will be Rome’s largest data centre - is scheduled to be launched in Q1 of 2023

Aruba has announced that its new Italian 30MW data centre campus will be completed in the first quarter of 2023.

This new hyper cloud data centre will sit within a 74,000 m² site and comprise five data centres, each with a 6MW capacity. 

The site will also possess a redundancy level of 2N or higher and 100 Gbit/s backbone links between Aruba Data Centers and key Neutral Access Points.

Aruba’s new site will become the largest data centre in Rome

Once completed - which is scheduled for the first quarter of 2023 - Aruba’s new site will be the largest in Rome. 

Alongside this, Aruba has expressed its commitment to sustainability, by minimising the overall environmental impact in the infrastructure construction, using 100% renewable energy, and implementing efficiency-optimised free-cooling.

"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."

As a site location, Rome gives Aruba prime connectivity to the rest of Europe, as well as the company’s existing data centre network in the region, which includes sites across Italy, Czech Republic, the UK, France, Germany and Poland.
