OVHcloud builds data centers resistant to fire and legal risks
On Monday 12 September, the French “cloud computing” champion OVHcloud inaugurated a new data center in Strasbourg with great fanfare, while announcing a strong international acceleration. The French player will open 15 new storage centers by 2024 and deploy them in Germany, Canada, India, Australia and Singapore.

The choice of location is highly symbolic: the French cloud leader was located in Strasbourg and on this same industrial site on the banks of the Rhine suffered a severe fire on March 11, 2021some months before going public. The fire had completely destroyed one data center and partially destroyed a second. A total of 12,000 to 16,000 customers were affected. The worst nightmare that can happen to a cloud operator. Disastrous for hundreds of SME customers who lost all their data irretrievably, the event was also disastrous for OVH in terms of image.
