  • We are an engaged corporate citizen

    It is our responsibility to be a positive force in society and to collectively design new systems for a better future.

    We are committed to powering our fast-growing global digital infrastructure in a smarter, more responsible and renewable way in order to fight climate change and the economic disparities that come with it. We believe that we have a key role to play in catalyzing a transformative change in how we consume and produce energy.

    We’ve always challenged the status quo rather than build on normal, and that’s why our data centers are 100% powered by renewable energy. Our latest data center, DC5, uses an adiabatic cooling system which is based on an evaporative process (no air conditioning). DC5 is therefore radically more efficient and uses less energy than a traditional data center.

A common set of simple values drives our business


We believe in the transparency of service practices, even when it comes to environmental impact and carbon footprint. It is key to building trust with our customers and communitites.


The internet serves as the central nervous system of the modern economy and shaping Europe’s digital future relies on the cloud to provide computing power that is flexible, cost effective, reliable, secure and sustainably powered. Not surprisingly, it takes a tremendous amount of energy to assemble, power and support our devices, data centers, and infrastructures.

Empowering our local economy

We assemble our own servers, and manage 7 data centers. With the control over the entire value chain, we are free to set our own ambitious goals in terms of efficiency, performance and environmental footprint.


We believe infrastructure should be ultra easy, performant and responsible efficient. We are committed to solving real life customer challenges with cutting-edge technology, disruptive products and efficient infrastructures
