VivaTech: Cleyrop wants to become a sovereign data processing partner for large accounts

At Viva Technology, Clerop, a young data storage and processing specialist, made his distinctive mark: sovereignty. “All of our infrastructure is run by companies headquartered in the European Union,” said Arno Mueller, co-founder of Cleyrop with Jerome Vala, Lauren Sayag and Stefan Mesika. Thanks to their “data-independent” platform, independent of US clouds and multi-clouds and certified by the National Agency for Information Systems Security (ANSSI), they seek to become a “sovereign industrial data partner” for major accounts, public and private.

“We follow new European rules – RGPD, Digital Governance Act, Data Governance Act – and we decided to be hosted by French cloud providers such as OVHcloud, 3DS Outscale (Dassault Systèmes), IMT Teralab and Europeans who respect the Gaia-X philosophy. “, Says Arno Mueller in detail. The Gaia-X Federation unites European cloud players around norms and standards of interaction. “We are negotiating with other European clouds, including Orange and Xavier Niel’s Scaleway, for a startup proposal.”

Ministry of Health and Tourism

The company, which employs 50 people, plans to hire about 100 employees over the next twelve months to meet customer needs, particularly in the healthcare, defense, energy and finance sectors, which process highly confidential data.

This was especially true of the Ministry of Health, which was looking for a way to facilitate the production of health data analysis and information panels by its 350 data researchers. “Given the sensitive nature of his data, he needed a secure and sovereign platform that complied with the ISO27001 SecNumCloud standard,” said Arno Mueller.

In another sector, Atout France, the state agency responsible for tourism development, which employs 300 people, has also approached Cleyrop for its France Tourisme Observation data center project. “Cleyrop’s integrated platform has lifted the constraints of building its own A to Z cloud infrastructure,” said Hugo Alvarez, a potential Atout France strategy manager. “Besides, it’s a 100% French instrument, which is important for us as a public player.” He compares Cleyrop’s solution to an infrastructure that will be “a smartphone on which the customer develops their own programs after entering their own data.”

High level of traceability

The economic model is based on subscription, which includes hosting, licensing, and outsourcing multiple data environments, such as development, testing, production, or remote backup. The price of this subscription ranges from 300,000 euros to one million euros per year: “It depends on the amount of functionality used by the customer, the level of service requested and the number of users,” – says Arno Mueller.

The features offered cover all stages of the data lifecycle: storage and computing, algorithms, dashboard display, and secure collaborative projects with user-specific constraints. The founders of Cleyrop insist that their solution “can be deployed industrially for mass use” with a “high level of tracking”.

The young company, headquartered in Paris on the Champs Elysees, has two secondary offices in Rouen and Montpellier. “We plan to expand the territory in the French technology capitals,” said Arnaud Mueller. In this lively context, Cleyrop hopes to triple its turnover to 10 million euros by 2022.
