Italian government picks Fastweb, Aruba to set up country's cloud hub

·1-min read

MILAN (Reuters) - The Italian government has chosen the offer of Internet operator Fastweb and web hosting provider Aruba to create a cloud-based infrastructure for the country's public administration data.

The infrastructure, called the National Strategic Hub (NSH), is part of the Italian government's strategy to accelerate a digital transformation and guarantee national data security and control.

A rival consortium comprising Leonardo, Telecom Italia, Italian state lender CDP and software company Sogei now have 15 days to match the Fastweb-Aruba offer, Italy's innovation ministry said in a statement on Wednesday.
