Wind Tre has signed a deal with data centre company Switch as it looks to provide a range of services to enterprises in Italy.
Its enterprise arm, Wind Tre Business, has teamed up with US-based Switch to offer “ICT transformation and connected cloud services” via the latter’s SUPERNAP data centre near Milan.
Day Gruppo Up, which provides a range of services to restaurants, is the first customer to sign up, taking racks and cloud services as well as disaster recovery solutions.
The deal, financial details of which were not disclosed, also includes MPLS services.
Wind Tre said the partnership with Switch also includes the provision of the operator’s fibre broadband infrastructure to link the SUPERNAP data centre to the heart of Milan.
The joint venture between the Italian subsidiaries of VEON and CK Hutchison unveiled its new enterprise division last month, having begun offering mobile and fixed services to consumers as Wind Tre in January.
“The agreement brings Wind Tre Business into the SUPERNAP Italia ecosystem of cloud providers, allowing Wind Tre to use one of the most cutting-edge data centers in the world, through which it can provide its customers with ICT transformation and connected cloud services with the highest quality standards while simultaneously ensuring maximum security and logical and physical integrity of the data,” Wind Tre said in a statement.
The operator recorded revenues of €1.5 billion and EBITDA of €517 million in the first three months of the year.
