Jul 22, 2022 | Posted by MadalineDunn

Aruba has announced a new completion date for its delayed Rome data center, Hyper Cloud Data Center (IT4). When complete, it will be the largest in Rome, comprising five independent 6MW data centers, totaling 30MW with 2N redundancy at full build-out. Although first announced in 2018 and originally expected to be complete by 2020, the new date for completion is the first quarter of 2023. 

Alessandro Bruschini, Head of Infrastructure at Aruba, commented: "Tapping into the latest technologies to improve sustainability is a priority for the entire data center 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 center network in Italy."

Bruschini added: "The Hyper Cloud Data Center will work in close synergy with the entire Aruba data center network and help expand our presence and enhance our connectivity in key European regions."

According to the company, the campus “will be entirely environmentally friendly, thanks to the use of energy produced from 100% renewable sources," using on-site photovoltaic systems and efficiency-optimised cooling.
