The penetration of end-to-end remote monitoring solutions in data centers will increase the growth of the data center market in France. Paris accounted for around 50% of data center investment in France in 2019. Marseille, which is emerging as a major data center hub in France, saw an investment of around 30% during the same period.
The introduction of 5G in France is likely to increase investment in data centers. Orange, one of the data center investors and a leading telecommunications provider in the country, is responsible for introducing the 5G network. France’s growing connectivity with other countries is expected to drive more investment from cloud and colocation service providers. The main Internet exchanges France IX, provides connectivity to Asia, Africa, the Middle East and the United States.
What is the impact of the current COVID-19 pandemic on the French market?
The rapid spread of COVID-19 has dramatically increased data traffic from March 2020. To provide high availability services, operators are taking precautionary measures for their on-site employees. Data center operators have also taken steps to manage the available workforce and monitor their existing faculties without disruption in service. The impact of the operations will be low in France.
What are the key factors that attract investment in France?
The increased adoption of the cloud will stimulate investment in the data center market in France. The French government intends to empower regional software publishers to support local cloud solutions. In addition, data center providers in France are investing in technologies that contribute to energy optimization. For example, Bretagne Télécom intends to reduce the energy consumption of its ChâteauBourg data center using artificial intelligence.
