Our Paris data centre campus, spanning our Paris East and Paris West facilities, is located in Clichy-Levallois, a prime area centred between the city's financial district and one of the most important European business districts, Paris La Défense.

  • One of the highest power densities and largest floorplates in France with over 50,000 sq m of space
  • Diverse and network-dense telecoms ecosystem supported by geographically diverse building entry points
  • Positioned for low latency connectivity close to end-users
  • Flexible solutions from single rack deployments through to multi-megawatt bespoke solutions

Connectivity

Due to extensive fibre capacity from international Tier 1 and Tier 2 carriers, the Global Switch Paris campus has attracted a diverse and network dense ecosystem of leading international and French CAC 40 brands. With five geographically diverse building entry points, the data centre’s structured interconnect system allows for low cost connections to anywhere in either facility.

Infrastructure

Global Switch’s Paris campus operates to Tier III+ standards and with key ISO certifications has a programme of continual improvement underpinned by our world-renowned Critical Environments Programme.  With reconfigurable power and cooling as well as other energy efficient design features, the campus offers customers low total cost of occupancy solutions.
