France is quietly becoming a leading hotspot for data center development in Europe, with experts predicting that the French data center market will grow approximately 20 percent by 2020, and the northern region of the country leading the way.
Recently, global data center developer and operator Etix Everywhere expanded its network of local data centers by signing a partnership with Eura DC, a joint venture between ARD-COM and ATE, two companies firmly anchored in the north of France. With its Tier 3-plus architecture, the new data center, Etix Lille #1, will meet the highest industry standards. This is consistent with all of Etix Everywhere’s global facilities.
