“Spain has several of Europe’s fastest-growing tech ecosystems, and with our established network of Scaleway customers, we see a significant opportunity to expand our presence into this region of Europe,” said Yann Lechelle, CEO, Scaleway. “Our goal is to continue to provide innovative solutions to our customers, in a highly sustainable and collaborative way, and we’re looking forward to better servicing the evolving cloud computing and high-end dedicated server  needs of the Spanish market and the southern regions of Europe.

Leveling the playing field in data infrastructure

Scaleway is one of the three European cloud service providers to be a founding member of GAIA-X, a project initiated by France and Germany that will enable companies, organizations, and citizens to retain control of their data. Security threats, data sovereignty, and technical infrastructures are increasingly important for European companies within a cloud computing landscape dominated by large non-EU players. The aim of the project is to set up a high-performance, competitive, and reliable European cloud.
