Largest Data Center in France, BURNS DOWN

Largest Data Center in France, BURNS DOWN

OVH , the largest server service for hosting data in Europe suffered a catastrophic fire in its data center, the largest in the nation of France.

Hmm, gotta be connected to that Nashville Data center "bombing"

The whole site is quite recently constructed. On google maps terrain view it is still under construction, and in street view it isn't there at all.

I wonder if they didn't get around to installing fire suppression systems yet? And the old favorite - "welders at work".

Incidentally for any urbex enthusiasts, the vast industrial buildings just to the North on that peninsular, are clearly vacant.

The white object, lower left in the pic with the firetruck - that is an 'end of track' buffer. You can see the two angled supports behind it.

Google 'OVH web hosting: SBG1, SBG2' for more articles.

It's just across the Rhine river border with Germany.

I just noticed, the spray paint graffitti piece on the side of the white container, is INSIDE the fence. So someone got in and wasn't detected, for long enough to do that piece. At least an hour's work, and lots of paint can rattling.

Fantastic security.

What does that sign with the stripey red and white cross mean, in France? 'Keep out'? Or 'keep off the railway line'?

That is a railway line the two yellow-vests are walking on. Which means this area does have walk-in access, via the rail line.

Ha ha, ONE wire mesh fence between all four buildings of a critical data center, and a weedy vacant lot? Also a bunch of shipping containers lying around the buildings to provide cover for a takedown team, in classic Counterstrike style.

Great planning there.

I second the comment that in any real kinetic war, modern civilization is doomed due to the critical services infrastructure (electricity, gas, water, sewage, fuel and data) being impossible to protect from effective sabotage. This how all civilizations end - chaotic collapse of infrastructure. Book ref: 'The collapse of complex societies' by Tainter.

The globalist Elite who want a 'great reset' are insane psychopaths, divorced from reality. I aalmost wish for them to get a taste of what they intend, because it will shock and/or kill them. But no, I like having a functioning civilization. Call me old fashioned...

I noticed also that the barbwire top portion of the fence is angled inward toward the buildings.
Usually these are angled "outward" against the
area where an intruder would approach to
clime over the top.

Another oddity appears in the first photo (with all the flames).

On the right hand side you see the stacked shipping containers, purple and white, that appear to have windows on the side. Also a large dark purple banner hanging with with lettering.

There are companies that offer such an arrangement for people who want to build housing with them. (

This "Data Storage Site" sure has several odd characteristics about it. Could it be "hiding in plain sight" or is this a false flag story of sorts?

Lots of vents on the sides of the buildings. Big
computers generate lots of heat.

This place is strange.
# detailsTerraHertz 2021-03-11 17:57
Fence angled tops can go either way. If the fence is right on the property boundary it has to angle inwards, otherwise would be encroaching on the other property.

The containers with things on their sides - look like vents or heat exchangers to me. I'd guess those containers are part of the building cooling systems. Or at least cooling backups. They are not windows.

Vents on the buildings... Lots of heat to get rid of. From big computers, or usually, thousands and thousands of high end blade servers and backbone switches and routers. All net server sites are like this.

What IS odd - normally sites like this have massive halon fire suppression systems. With multiple redundancy. So those just happened to fail here? Or the initial incendiary source was persistent enough to keep going despite repeated halon bursts?

Lol they have this place in a ghetto and amongst apartments in the background?? were im sure vagrants are staying? Love the shipping containers all stacked up and graffiti everywhere

In the photos above, I wonder what's up
with the shipping containers stacked up
so close to these buildings?

This location seems odd for such a high
tech operation. Maybe just a cost effective
low rent option.
+2 # Mirror sites?Paul Lambert 2021-03-10 14:32
You fellows would know better than I would, but wouldn't such a massive loss of physical data storage still not mean a loss of data? All the data would be elsewhere on the cloud or on mirror sites, right?
# Mirror sites?TheProphet 2021-03-11 06:47
Paul, generally speaking, most exec's think things won't happen to them. The standard is to have data stored offsite. Major ISP's (Internet Service Providers) do have redundant locations. However, this company having four data center buildings housed in the same campus makes me wonder if they just didn't store the data locally on campus at the other sites, to save money?

I guess we will never know unless an IT SysAdmin there happens to leak information.

Apparently the MSM does NOT want this widely known. In a quick swing through the headlines around the world, this just isn't a story.

Perhaps they don't want the masses making the obvious connections either. Folks are waking up.

@Mel: I confirm. I'm in France and haven't seen anything on the MSM.

Didn't the 'van explosion' in Memphis(I think it was Memphis) take out a data center? Is there a connection? Deep State-ish? Maybe there are a boat load of data centers and it's a coincidence.
I used to say: "Time will tell." but I haven't said that since JFK was shot by a magic bullet.

Well, we now know Russia's response to the cyber attack.

Cyberwar as we all know is today a Prelude to kinetic war, even a thermonuclear war!

I mean, if I have to'll be for the independent countries.

Guys, people have no idea how many operatives are living in North America from a variety of countries. Any big war starts and guys with torches cut down the interconnecting high-voltage trunk lines for the electrical grid. There are less than 10 of them and 4 cuts will take out ALL the power in North America as the grid can't adapt to such load losses. You can cut a tower down in 10 minutes and it can take a week or two to build a new one. You get even TEN foreign agents cutting the towers down (and their are hundreds of thousands of miles of undefendable trunk lines) and there is no way anyone can keep the grid up. Shoot the step-up and step-down transformers on either end and they are destroyed. Right now there is a 6 months turn-around to get a replacement and they are only made oversea (mostly in China).

Take out the railway spikes for a stretch and the trains will derail themselves. If real war actually starts power vanishes with the food in the grocery stores.

Oh, and if the US or Canadian government starts mass roundups and relocations to isolation camps (and I get caught on one of those trains)......I'd REALLY appreciate it if you'd derail my train. I'd rather die then get into the camps and it'll seriously delay others from being shipped by train.

And don't worry REAL terrorists and foreign governments already know all of this.

Good comments here..I would say President Putin means business. Strategic business.

So, Russia is hit by a massive cyber attack and the largest hosting provider in Europe is taken down by structural destruction. Coincidence? I think not!
+5 # There are no coincidencesBanjoDoug 2021-03-10 11:09
Very likely the cyber attack on Russia came from this location.....
# A revenge attack?destiny 2021-03-11 21:30
Maybe the arson was caused by Russian loyalists?

Quoting BanjoDoug:
Very likely the cyber attack on Russia came from this location.....

Got to echo the conclusion here. And dang-it, that was fast. That should cause a few second thoughts down the line.
