PARIS (Reuters) - Europe has "lost" the global battle in cloud computing but should nevertheless resume the fight, French President Emmanuel Macron said on Monday.

"If we want our ecosystem to be sustainable, it has to be sovereign," Macron said during a conference, reiterating that Europe should not rely "on any non-European power" for data security and 5G.

U.S. giants Amazon, Microsoft and Google dominate the worldwide cloud computing business, with a combined market share of around 60%.

Macron's comments followed the announcement earlier on Monday of a partnership between Deutsche Telekom and French cloud services provider OVHcloud that aims to build a new cloud computing offer for European companies and public sector entities deemed of strategic importance.
