    Paris is a good place to run a data center business. It is a major European business center, but unlike other European business centers, electricity there is relatively cheap, because France’s predominantly nuclear generation has ensured an abundance of energy. The city’s extensive underground sewer system, famous for its role in the French Revolution and World War II and described by Victor Hugo in Les Misérables, has also been used to build out fiber network infrastructure, so connectivity in the city is abundant as well. One of the biggest data center providers in Paris is Iliad SA,…
