Salesforce to open European Data Centre in FranceStaff writer ▼ | September 11, 2014
Salesforce signed an agreement to establish a new European Data Centre in France, selecting Interxion, a European provider of cloud and carrier-neutral data centre services, as its service provider.
Interxion European provider will be service provider
Salesforce.com’s European Data Center in France is part of the company’s plan to open three data centres in Europe to support adoption of salesforce.com’s cloud computing services among its growing base of customers in Europe. The first of the company’s European Data Centres will open in the U.K. this fall, with data centres in France and Germany to follow in 2015.
In addition to the new data centre in France, the company recently unveiled a new French headquarters in an iconic building in the heart of Paris. The new French headquarters will house the industry’s first Digital Transformation Hub, a dedicated space to foster innovation and collaboration between salesforce.com’s ecosystem of customers, partners, developers and employees.
The new salesforce.com Digital Transformation Hub in Paris will deliver an interactive, hands-on experience that will bring the Salesforce1 Platform to life—from smartphones and wearable devices to connected toothbrushes and cars.
Interxion is a provider of cloud and carrier-neutral colocation data centre services in Europe, serving a wide range of customers through 37 data centres in 11 European countries. ■
