Aruba announces two new data centers
Aruba S.p.A. celebrates the third year of Global Cloud Data Center, the largest campus data center in Italy of over 200,000 m², with an ecological footprint and equipped with the most modern technologies, inaugurated in Ponte San Pietro (Bergamo) on 5 October 2017. On the occasion of the anniversary of the campus, the company has decided to formalize the expansion works that involved the entire area and will lead to the imminent activation of two other data centers, called DC-B and DC-C. In detail, the DC-B will have a power of 9 MW, divided between three large rooms. The DC-C, on the other hand, will be a multi-storey data center with 4 data rooms located on two levels, and a fully operational power of 8 MW. The works of the DC-B will be completed by the first half of 2021, while those relating to the DC-C by the first half of 2022.

The new modules will join the DC-A, the first of the data centers inaugurated within the campus, which has 10 data rooms, now almost completely used. With the two new modules, the surface area allocated to the data centers on the campus becomes 80,000 m² of which over 23,000 m² dedicated to data rooms. Further development of energy production: photovoltaic, hydroelectric and third turbine plants

Sustainability is an essential value for the company which, within its expansion plan, has foreseen huge investments for energy supply from renewables. In this regard, Global Cloud Data Center is one of the green Data Centers and uses, in fact, energy resources from various sources including photovoltaics, hydroelectricity - thanks to a hydroelectric power plant within the area - and others. technologies, such as the use of highly efficient geothermal systems, which allow to regulate the temperature of the data rooms, further lowering consumption, the energy impact of the data centers and consequently the environmental impact.

In order to further enhance the on-site energy production capacity, which guarantees maximum efficiency, the two new modules DC-B and DC-C will be coated with new generation photovoltaic systems both on the walls and roofs. In addition, within the next three months, a new photovoltaic system on the roof of DC-A will be completed, which will be added to the system already in operation on the south wall. In addition, a third turbine will be installed inside the hydroelectric plant.

Thanks to these innovations, clean energy self-produced within the campus itself will reach a total of about 6 MW and the benefits of use of green energy will also benefit all Aruba customers, allowing them to implement conscious and sustainable energy consumption.

"Thanks to the investments in the two new data centers and the upgrading of the 'self-production of energy deriving from renewable sources, we are pursuing the goal we set ourselves with the birth of the Global Cloud Data Center "declared Stefano Cecconi, CEO of Aruba SpA" That is to make the best of IT technology available to our customers , respecting the environment. Today we are adding new blocks to the completion of the technology campus with the intention of maintaining our negative Carbon Footprint in the entire Aruba Data Center network ".
