The Swiss based Bancadati has a 1000 sqm data center located in Lugano. Bancadati wanted a state-of-the art solution to leverage as part of their offering which would simplify cloud data storage and long term backups that would serve customers in both Switzerland and Northen Italy faster, easier and reliably. At the start of 2018, GIG started to build one of the largest European based cloud storage archives, consisting of 60 Petabytes of public cloud storage to meet this requirement from Bancadati.

GIG proposed adding the S3 managed archive, GIG Play and Cloud solution on top of the Bancadati hardware and network infrastructure. The project was delivered over a period of 6 months, enabling Bancadati to seamlessly manage their 60 Petabyte archive storage in readiness for the market launch of their data storage and cloud solution (PAAS and IAAS). These solutions allows Bancadati to offer an easily consumable and highly price competitive product to the market that is supported by one of the largest deployed storage infrastructure in Europe.


“We trust our partnership with GIG to even better enhance our value offering, providing the best possible state-of-the art technology to deliver excellence to our customers”
