Orange’s Normandy, Val-de-Reuil, France Orange will dedicate half of its data center at the 172,000-square-foot Normandy computing center to internal jobs running on 35,000 virtual machines and the rest to supporting customer services. The company chose the site for its chilly weather that can air-cool the facility 11 months out of the year, saving enough electricity to supply a town of 30,000 people, the company says. It also features a green wall that helps cool the building by drawing off heat via the moisture the vegetation uses.
