Digital Realty – one of the largest global providers of cloud- and carrier-neutral data centre, colocation and interconnection solutions – has announced its expansion into the Italian market following the acquisition and pre-development planning of land in Rome.
Digital Realty’s expansion into Rome will further strengthen its position as one of the leading providers of digital infrastructure capacity in the Mediterranean region, building on its existing presence in Athens, Marseille and Zagreb, as well as hubs currently under development in Barcelona, Crete and Tel Aviv.
Situated in the middle of three continents, the Mediterranean has become the gateway between Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia, and is attracting major intercontinental and regional subsea cable systems, creating one of the most important interconnection and digital traffic exchange areas in the world.
Rome is the European Union’s third-largest city in terms of population and Italy’s second-largest by gross domestic product. Its strategic geographical location makes the city well-placed to grow its role as a global connectivity hub, complementing Milan, as well as increasing the resilience of Italy’s national and international network infrastructure. More importantly, it also helps the city play a key role as a major connectivity hub in the centre of the Mediterranean.Click below to share this article
