Why locate your data centre in France?

France is ranked as the world’s seventh largest and the EU’s second largest economy by purchasing power parity. As home to 31 of the Fortune Global 500 companies in 2013, France accommodates more Fortune 500 companies than any other European country. Being Europe’s third largest telecoms market, France offers an ideal environment for expansion in the data centre sector, as the country is recognised for its highly skilled engineers and technicians, along with its secure electricity supply and legal framework aimed for data protection.

  • France is the third largest ICT market in Europe and a growth market for high-tech and innovative companies with the highest number of science graduates in Europe and many of the international top company’s R&D centres located here.
  • Paris is the dominant data centre hub for France, accounting for over 70% of the country’s total data centre footprint.
  • The French government heavily invests in the digitalisation of its economy with initiatives including a €20billion investment in high-speed broadband coverage to reach every household in France within the next 10 years and a further € 150 million for research and development as part of the “Investments into the Future” project, which includes security and cloud computing.
