The company is developing a 2,000 sqm (21,525 sq ft) facility that is set to go live by the end of 2024.

Blue is reportedly repurposing an existing building and investing a total of €8 million ($8.5m) in the project.

The site will initially comprise two data halls and will feature immersion cooling in one.

Founded in 2005 and previously known as Bretagne Télécom, Blue offers cloud, network, and cybersecurity services.

Blue owns a data center in Châteaubourg outside Rennes – a former Thales site – and operates out of six colocation facilities across the country.

Thales left the Châteaubourg site in 2009, with Blue taking over a part of the property in 2012. The company opened a third data hall at the site earlier this year.
