FR-SD3: Beta tests continue!

We have decided to extend the Beta testing phase for our new datacenter in Paris, FR-SD3, to further test the networking infrastructure ahead of the official opening, first planned for March 20th, 2017.

Resource usage will remain free during the extended Beta phase. Be aware that only our Gandi Cloud hosting platform is currently available, which includes: Servers, Volumes, IPs, and Private VLANs. No date is currently set for the launch of Simple Hosting and Web Accelerators on FR-SD3. These are currently only available on our other datacenters in Paris and Luxembourg (FR-SD2 and LU-BI1, respectively).

We will announce the official opening date, at which point resource usage will be charged as per our standard rates, at least 15 days in advance. Until then, you’ll continue to see the cost of your resource usage on FR-SD3 on all our pages.

Feel free to contact our Hosting Support team for any and all questions, comments, impressions, or thoughts. Or, alternatively, share them with us by emailing
