Maintaining Data Sovereignty and Security

Securing your applications and the data of your users, Scaleway gives you choice of your infrastructures’ locations, to guarantee your services’ sovereignty

Ensuring Reversibility and Interoperability

It’s easy to deploy or replicate your services from one cloud to another, thanks to our application interoperability and data reversibility, facilitated by the bandwidth integrated into our Instances, or through our use of open-source software.

Leading a Sustainable Digital Transition

We master the environmental impact of your digital services, and take action to develop a more sustainable and thoughtful digital ecosystem. Scaleway is committed to providing our customers with maximum visibility on key emissions data and resource usage - energy, water - so that you can meet all sustainability requirements.

DINUM (The Interministerial Directorate of Digital)

Scaleway and DINUM worked, during France’s first Covid-related lockdown, on a videoconferencing solution intended to be used on a large scale by the various state services, and in particular by the Ministry of Education. This open source solution, based on BigBlueButton and hosted by Scaleway, eventually became known as the Webinaire de l’Etat (State Webinar). It has enabled tens of thousands of people to communicate, at any distance, to discuss, work and collaborate.

Sorbonne University

“With Scaleway Instances, we’re able to scale effortlessly. For now, we can go up to 8,000 users. If the project goes well and if Greenlight is used to its maximum capacity, we’ll be able to reach our threshold and, if necessary, easily expand to a bigger infrastructure. Data protection is vitally important to the university: with this solution, we knew that our data was safe and that our faculty members and students were able to share data securely. What we have been able to achieve with BigBlueButton would not have been possible with a competing foreign cloud provider.”
Fabrice Moutte, CIO of Sorbonne University
