Fastweb unveils Italy's first Tier IV certified data centre

Wednesday 15 April 2015 | 09:12 CET | News
Italian broadband operator Fastweb has inaugurated the first Italian data centre with Tier IV certification from the Uptime Institute. Located in the company's historic Via Amari headquarters in the heart of Milan, the new facility has a 4 Terabyte transmission capacity and an innovative cooling system that saves around 3,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions every year, making it one of the least polluting data centres in the world. Fastweb has invested EUR 25 million in the site, a figure that also includes the construction of a sister facility in central Italy within a year.
