Italtel creates new data center for Italian Army

MILAN, ITALY: Italtel, in partnership with Cisco, has been awarded a €2.5 million contract by the Telematics and Informatics Advanced Technologies Division of the Ministry of Defense to create a new data center for the Italian Army.

The main objectives of the program are to develop and modernize the Italian Army’s hardware and data network, complete the hardware and software infrastructure of the virtualization/concentration nodes and support the continued operation of such nodes.

By the end of the project, Italtel will have installed a new data center to run homogeneously to the army’s existing data centers network in terms of virtualization and concentration features, thus creating a functional and cutting edge ICT network.

The army’s data center network, which has two main centers in Rome and Padua, supplies IT services to all military bases throughout the Italian territory and has to meet very stringent security and continuity standards due to the highly strategic activity it is used for.
