Far more than a physical structure
Our infrastructure is an advanced technology ecosystem, built on two interconnected Tier IV Compliant data centers, where connectivity is the driving force and data comes to life.
Our Data Center
C21 is the highest performing Data Center infrastructure located within the Caldera Park in Milan, the area with the highest density of IP networks in Italy and offices of the Milan Internet Exchange MIX, a public peering point with over 200 interconnected network operators.
Connected to the E100 Data Center in Rome via a 100Gbps backbone, it is the ideal choice for implementing disaster recovery plans.
Several levels of security must be passed to access C21: from vehicle control to personal badges to private PIN codes, maximum security is guaranteed. C21 has 24/7 physical surveillance.
C21 is connected to the main Italian interchange points, including MIX and TOP-IX, with remote use in the C21 Meet-Me-Room, and NaMeX, with remote use in E100. All connections and access points are redundant.
Designed to operate as a neutral carrier and cloud, C21 was the first neutral data center in Italy to obtain Open-IX certification. The ideal solution to maintain your autonomous choice of network partner.
Up to 20kW IT per rack, it provides two redundant medium voltage substations each capable of delivering up to 3.2 MW and is energy autonomous for up to 72 hours.
C21 is a benchmark for companies that want to securely store their mission critical applications, guaranteeing business continuity for an annual uptime level of 99.995%.
CO2 emissions are 100% offset by supporting projects certified according to the highest international standards (Verified Carbon Standard and Gold Standard).
The projects we support are aimed at combating climate change by acting on forests, their preservation and proper management.

C21, a new data center model
With a total area of 3,100 m² and 1,450 m² dedicated solely to data rooms, C21 is an expression of our commitment to infrastructural excellence.
We aim to ensure the smoothest possible experience in the Data Center. For this, we have perfected a parking reservation system that allows our customers to reserve their parking space independently via the Customer Portal. The automatic number plate recognition system ensures smooth entry, optimising each visit.
Safe and sustainable firefighting
