Telecom major Orange has built a 16,000 m² data center in Val-de-Reuil, France, including 5,000 m² of computer room space.
The new data center will be used to host data and services for Orange business customers and the general public.
Orange is expected to accelerate the development of Orange’s cloud computing offers and to support the Group’s own IT transformation.
Orange data centers are available in 16 sites in France and more than 50 around the world, representing an investment of more than 100 million euros.
The energy efficient data center is the biggest in France to use free cooling. Orange believes that the savings made at the Val-de-Reuil site equates to the annual domestic electricity consumption of a town of about 30,000 people.
