Take a tour of Equinix's PA3 data centre with BSO Network Solutions

Welcome to the Equinix PA3 data centre in Saint Denis, Paris, which offers almost 5,000kW of operating power


Equinix's PA3 data centre in Paris is a new technical module, offering almost 5,000 kW of operating power. Techworld was given a tour of the facility by BSO Network Solutions, Equinix's largest customer in France, which offers hosted and private cloud services to finance and professional organisations.

Since launching in 2004, the company has been converging network and system integration, managed hosting and hosted network solutions – which together amount to cloud computing. Chief executive Michael Ourabah said the surge of marketing from the big technology vendors around cloud computing has given BSO a huge boost, as it no longer has to explain the benefits of this approach to its customers.
