Data centers

The challenges of data centers

Information and communication technologies require data that travels over data centers and computing centers. These strategic infrastructures enable data storage, processing, backup and protection. With the explosion of digital solutions, the global digital data boom is increasing by 40% per year and the data center market is growing rapidly.

Your issues at the heart of our approach
