Planning for a new data center in a different country may require companies to factor backup power sources into their architecture. Two major tech companies are implementing European data centers, offering examples of these kind of expansions. No matter where their business deals take them, companies should invest in the best power protection solutions to stay efficient, even in the face of sudden losses.
Microsoft has announced a series of data centers in France as part of a plan to support its cloud initiatives. According to a company statement, this collective consists of Azure, Dynamics 365 and Office 365, and will build on other centers in Germany and the UK. The company will pursue these plans into next year, and CEO Satya Nadella said that international concerns are part of the company's plans for development.
"Building a global, trusted, intelligent cloud platform is core to our mission to empower every person and organization on the planet to achieve more," Nadella said. "There's never been a better time for organizations across Europe to seize new growth and opportunity with the Microsoft Cloud."
Facebook is also planning to build in Europe in the coming year. Reuters recently reported that the social media giant is working on a center in Ireland, as well as a future facility in Odense, one of Denmark's largest cities. The initial story came from Danish news source Fyens.dk.
