aruba

Aruba has officially opened its data centre in Poland DC- PL1. The data centre, located in Warsaw, is the eighth Aruba Group data centre in Europe meeting the needs of the local customers, and becomes a foothold for further expansion into other markets in Central and Eastern Europe.

The opening of the new data centre is a logical step in the development of the company, which has been building its position in its home market for more than two years. Since entering the Polish market, it has won nearly 15,000 customers. The new Polish data centre will allow local customers to store data exclusively in their local market. It is also an element of the company’s strategy to extend its services to the East, especially to Ukraine, where the company sees great interest in the cloud model.

The Aruba Cloud DC – PL1 is renowned for the use of high-end equipment. In line with Aruba’s global strategy, the Polish data centre is equipped with high quality infrastructure provided by well-known manufacturers with whom Aruba has been working with across Europe for years. The hardware includes the latest Dell servers, Intel processors (Xeon E5) and SSDs.

The emphasis on the data centre’s highest quality is evident in the fact that Aruba Cloud does not run more than two virtual hosts on a single processor. This translates into higher performance and stability of the Cloud Pro service, the standard applied to all Aruba data centres.

In the new data centre, domestic Aruba Cloud customers will be able to use all types of IaaS provided by Aruba for Western European markets. These include three types of cloud services: Virtual cloud servers (VPS SSD), public (Cloud Pro) and private cloud, as well as a host of other tools, including a cloud backup solution. All services are offered at promotional rates for customers who are using selected packages.

In addition to the highly technical strengths of the cloud-based infrastructure, data security and compliance with the new regulations are extremely important. All cloud services provided are in line with the provisions of the CISPE Code of Conduct for Data Protection. Importantly, the CISPE code has preceded the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and it is compliant with the requirements of the new EU regulation, coming into force in 2018.

Aruba Cloud’s solution users are assured that Aruba does not process their personal data, for its own benefit or for the resale to third parties, such as for the mining of personal data, profiling of data subjects, marketing or similar actions. This is just one of the many restrictions that Aruba follows as a member of CISPE.
