The largest, state-of-the-art data center campus in Italy

The Global Cloud Data Center is a data center campus with a surface area of 200,000m2 in Ponte San Pietro (BG), just a few minutes from Milan. All facilities have been designed and built to meet or exceed the highest levels of resilience, in accordance with ANSI/TIA-942 Rating 4 requirements and the ISO 22237 standard, the international benchmark standard for the entire life cycle of a data center, from strategic conception to building and operation. At the IT3 Data Center, traffic can be exchanged with all the operators on the Milan Internet eXchange in Milan, thanks to the MIX Point of Presence.

Power center

The dual power center contains redundant modules made up of containers that are easy to scale and replace. Each module is made up of 4 stacked containers: 2 for the batteries, 1 for the UPS and 1 for the power center.


The groundwater cooling system for the primary circuit works on the heat exchangers (2N redundancy) that cool the secondary circuit towards the data rooms. The air/water cooling chillers only start working in an emergency.

Carrier neutral
data center

Carriers with fiber: TIM, Fastweb, Wind | Tre, Vodafone, Retelit, Cogent, Irideos, Planetel. A dual transmission system to Milan Internet eXchange (MIX) facilitates interconnectivity with tens of further national and international carriers. Provision of managed connectivity available on request.

100% Green Data Center


The data center has been designed to exploit all the possibilities to minimize its environmental impact, without compromising the guaranteed high standards of reliability and performance. It is powered by 100% renewable energy from sources certified by the European Guarantee of Origin (GO) standard.

  • 100% energy-saving hardware
  • Hydroelectric and photovoltaic energy
  • Incredibly efficient geothermal cooling system
  • Total capacity of the DC-A:
    3,600 racks
  • Power per rack of up to 40 kW (made-to-measure)
  • 2N redundancy internal cooling units
