French banking group BNP Paribas wants to build two new data centres a Vaux-sur-Sure, in the Belgian province of Luxembourg, Datanews reported. The group chose the site for climactic as well as security reasons.
The 15 year project will be conducted in three phases and will ultimately see the creation of 44.000 sq m worth of data centre buildings, and 70-80 new jobs. The first phase should be operational by 2015. The new centres will serve the entire BNP Paribas group and not only BNP Paribas Fortis.
