Datacenter in France and HDS certification

Can you tell me if the France region is available and if not, if you have a provisional date for the creation of a datacenter in France.

In addition, do you have the HDS (Health Data Hosting) certification awarded by the government, which is mandatory in France for hosting health data?

Have a nice day,

Hello @aurelienfavre

At the moment France is not available as Region for DigitalOcean products. You can also check the Regional Availability Matrix via this link:

However this is a great idea, sounds like it’d be super useful!

It looks like someone has had the same idea before and has posted it on our Product Ideas board. The best thing to do would be to head over and add your vote to it, as well as adding any additional information in the comments for exactly what you’d like to see implemented!

Hope that helps!
