Blog launches new European data center in France

10/09/2014 by


Salesforce has inked a deal with Interxion to launch a new European data centre in France.

The data center, one of three planned for Europe, will be provided by Amsterdam-based Interxion, according to an announcement on Wednesday. The agreement between Salesforce and the cloud and carrier-neutral data centre services company will propel forward plans to increase strategic investments in France; a country Salesforce says is an "important market" for the firm's global strategy.

The opening of a new UK-based data center is planned for the fall, with France and Germany to follow in 2015. The cloud services provider says the new centers are necessary to cater for a growing European customer base.

The French data center will be powered by renewable energy sources.

In addition to the launch of the new French data center, Salesforce recently unveiled a new French headquarters. The Paris-based headquarters will house Salesforce's Digital Transformation Hub, which the company touts as a "dedicated space to foster innovation and collaboration between's ecosystem of customers, partners, developers and employees."

"Interxion is pleased to be selected by Salesforce as its data centre provider in France," said Fabrice Coquio, Managing Director of Interxion, France.

"Interxion's state of the art data centre will deliver outstanding connectivity and will offer a highly resilient facility for's growing customer base in France and Europe."
