Our goal has always been to respond to our customers’ requirements, and we have already done this by creating the Global Cloud Data Center near Milan, in order to meet the needs of customers which want to address Italian and European markets using our DCs to host their services.
We now want to do the same with the Rome Data Center in response to the demands of the international corporations looking to have their base in Italy. It’s an essential part of the development of our European and national network of data centers.
