2CRSi, Clever Cloud, Kalray and Vates join forces for superior and innovative data center equipment |  news


2CRSi (Euronext Paris ISIN code: FR0013341781), a developer and manufacturer of high-performance, energy-efficient servers, Clever Clouda European provider of automation and optimization solutions for hosting websites and applications, Kalray (Euronext Growth Paris: ALKAL), a leading provider of hardware and software technologies for high-performance, data-centric computing markets, from cloud to edge, and Cotton woola software vendor specializing in secure and public virtualization, are pleased to announce that the project led by Vates THE RENAISSANCE von der französischen AMI Cloud: France 2030 Investment Plan – “Supporting the supply of solutions for the industry of the future”1 was awarded. The goal of ReNESENS is to develop solutions for cloud and edge data center infrastructures around a new class of processors called DPU (Data Processing Unit) and innovative virtualization and software-defined technologies.

The speed, complexity and volume of data processed by data centers is exploding, historically in the cloud and more recently at the edge. New classes of devices based on new hardware and software foundations are needed to provide more efficient, performance-optimized, and more public data center infrastructures.

The ReNESENS project brings together some of the most progressive French companies with unique expertise in the new class of DPU data processors, virtualization software, highly efficient servers and innovative data center architecture; Vates, Clever Cloud, KALRAY and 2CRSi. The project aims to develop an innovative and attractive, sovereign offer for both end users and the ecosystem of players in the data center.


Olivier Lambert, President and Founder of Vates said: “Today, data centers are more important than ever, which means that innovative and very efficient systems have to be managed. In this respect, virtualization plays a key role. ReNESENS is a project of strategic importance for the development of the next generation of data centers, both at its core as well as at the edge.
In this project, Vates will work closely with its partners to integrate XCP-ng into Kalray’s DPU architecture and enable its stack to work well with Clever Cloud’s networking tools. In addition, Vates will offer these tightly optimized applications that combine the best of Kalray’s technologies, Clever Cloud and 2CSRi’s high-end and edge computing hardware solutions.”


Alain Wilmouth, CEO of 2CRSi said: “Innovation is the
driving force of 2CRSi. Our contribution to the ReNESENS project is of strategic importance for the group. Working on technology sovereignty is key to success in a disoriented post-COVID world. Entirely developed in France with our partners Kalray, Clever Cloud and Vates, this project will change the way we manage infrastructures and perform. This solution is designed to solve two key issues facing our industry: cloud security and energy conservation in the data center environment.”


Eric Baissus, CEO of Kalraysaid: “DPU processors are a game-changer for data center infrastructure. They offer a unique opportunity to build more flexible, scalable and energy-efficient solutions. As a leader in DPU space in Europe, we are pleased to join the ReNESENS project to work closely with 2CRSi, Clever Cloud and Vates to build the next generation of data center infrastructure.”


Quentin Adam, CEO von Clever Cloudsaid: “We are pleased to participate in the ReNESENS project, which will result in an innovative solution for managing network traffic in hardware and software, which will improve the technical and energy efficiency of our infrastructures, while reducing costs. Clever Cloud will bring all its expertise to this initiative and to the collaboration with its partners 2CRSi, Kalray and Vates. Together, the French tech players will shape the cloud tools of tomorrow.”

The ReNESENS project is divided into 4 main areas:

  • DPU and Virtualization: Use of DPU to improve performance and power efficiency of virtualization and logical isolation.
  • Orchestration: Orchestration involving the development of an isolation system for the container execution environment.
  • Software-defined networks and storage: The use of DPUs to achieve maximum network performance via public, secure and high-performance software routing (reverse proxy) and storage protocols and services.
  • Hardware Integration: Leveraging DPUs within a new generation of data center equipment.

ReNESENS is a 3-year, multi-million euro project that aims to deliver a complete range of highly innovative solutions combining hardware and software, enabling customers to use independent, secure and sophisticated solutions for their data centers.
