At Viva Tecnologia, Cleyrop, the young specialist in data storage and processing, made his difference heard: sovereignty. “Our entire infrastructure uses companies based in the European Union”, summarizes Arnaud Muller, co-founder of Cleyrop alongside Jerôme Valat, Lauren Sayag and Stephane Messika. With their “data agnostic” platform, independent of American clouds and multiclouds and certified by the National Agency for Information Systems Security (ANSSI), they aim to become the “sovereign industrial data partner” of large public and private accounts.
“We are in compliance with the new European regulations – GDPR, Digital Governance Act, Data Governance Act – and we have chosen to be hosted by French cloud providers such as OVHcloud, 3DS Outscale (Dassault Systèmes), IMT Teralab and Europeans who respect the philosophy of Gaia -X”, details Arnaud Muller. The Gaia-X federation brings together European cloud players around interoperability norms and standards. “We are in discussions with other European clouds, including Xavier Niel’s Orange and Scaleway, for a start-up offering -ups”.
Ministries of Health and Tourism
The company, which employs 50 people, plans to recruit around 100 staff over the next twelve months to meet customer demands, particularly in the healthcare, defense, energy and finance sectors, which handle highly sensitive data.
It particularly appealed to the Ministry of Health, which was looking for a way to facilitate the production of health data analyzes and dashboards by its 350 data scientists. “Given the sensitive nature of its data, it needed a secure, sovereign platform that complies with the ISO27001 SecNumCloud standard,” emphasizes Arnaud Muller.
In another sector, Atout France, the state agency responsible for the development of tourism that employs 300 people, also called Cleyrop for its datahub project France Tourisme Observation. “Cleyrop’s integrated platform has removed the constraint of having to build our own cloud infrastructure from A to Z,” says Hugo Alvarez, Forward and Strategy Manager at Atout France. “Furthermore, it is a 100% French tool, which is important for us as a public player.” He compares the Cleyrop solution to an infrastructure that would be “the smartphone on which the customer develops their own applications after having injected their own data”.
High level of traceability
The cost-effective model is subscription-based that includes hosting, licensing and outsourcing various data work environments such as development, testing, production or remote backup. The price of this subscription varies between €300,000 and €1 million per year: “It depends on the scope of the features used by the customer, the level of service requested and the number of users”, specifies Arnaud Muller.
The features offered cover all stages of the data lifecycle: storage and calculation, algorithms, exposure via dashboards and secure collaborative projects, with restrictions depending on the user. Cleyrop’s founders insist that their solution “can be industrially deployed for mass use” with a “high level of traceability”.
The young company, which established its headquarters in Paris on the Champs-Elysées, has two secondary establishments, in Rouen and Montpellier. “We plan to deploy in the FrenchTech capitals of the territory”, announces Arnaud Muller. In this dynamic context, Cleyrop expects to triple its turnover to 10 million euros by 2022.
