Salesforce has opened its first European datacentre in the UK as part of the cloud customer relationship management (CRM) software provider’s strategy to build three facilities in Europe.

The datacentre is fully powered by renewable energy sources and supports the Salesforce’s sustainability objectives, it said.

Salesforce will open datacentres in France and Germany in 2015 to support its SaaS offerings in the region.

Salesforce said the global shift to cloud has opened the door to new and exciting social and mobile technologies, and has created unprecedented growth in cloud computing spending by companies across Europe.

Salesforce has delivered 42% growth in Europe year-on-year, and seeks to bring more European users to Salesforce.com with strategic datacentre locations.

The UK facility is its sixth datacentre site globally, but its first in Europe.

Salesforce set up headquarter offices in France and the UK, and expanded its German presence with a new office in Berlin. It intends to create more than 500 jobs across Europe during its fiscal year 2015.

European investment

The launch of the datacentres comes just six months after Salesforce announced plans to increase strategic investments in Europe, its fastest growing region in fiscal year 2014.

The launch of the UK facility “demonstrates Salesforce’s great commitment to the UK and Europe”, said Ian Cohen, chief information officer, JLT – one of Salesforce’s European customers.

The CRM specialist is the latest cloud company to build a European infrastructure facility. Other large cloud providers such as IBM, Amazon, Microsoft, Google and VMware arerushing to build datacentres in Europe as enterprises based in the European Union (EU)insist their cloud data stays in the region.

More often than not, the businesses who are victims of those attacks expose themselves to punishment of their own.
