Data storage: Italy to create a system for sensitive state data, to involve big overseas firms

By using the cloud computing technology, some of the most sensitive state and corporate data of France can be safely stored in the data storage system

Using cloud technology developed by big overseas firms, Italy aims to create a data storage system for sensitive state data, the Innovation Minister of the country said on Monday following France’s lead despite calls by some EU politicians for home-grown solutions.

Vittorio Colao, the former head of telecoms firm Vodafone, without mentioning any firms, said during an online event that Rome wants to ensure safety and security while getting access to the best technologies.

Fuelling concerns in Europe over the risk of US surveillance in the wake of the adoption of the US CLOUD Act of 2018, US tech giants Google, Microsoft and Amazon dominate the data storage industry.

France, earlier this month, said, if the cloud computing technology developed by Alphabet’s Google and Microsoft is licensed to French companies, the by using the cloud computing technology, some of the most sensitive state and corporate data of France can be safely stored in the data storage system.

“France has recently outlined its policy on national cloud, clearly we have been consulting on this with them, and we want to do exactly the same”, said Colao.

“We have decided to create a national cloud hub for state data, whose residency will be in Italy and in Europe, but we will use the best technologies available at international level”, he said.

He expected to have such a hub in place next year, he added.

To help the economy recover from the coronavirus crisis, the project is part of a plan financed by European funds.
