To achieve this, Bull is helping organizations to define and implement the most appropriate Cloud strategies for their business.
New secure public Cloud services now available
Following the creation of Numergy - Europe's first digital energy producer - of which Bull is a shareholder, Bull has become an official Numergy reseller, and is launching its own public Cloud solutions including IaaS services on-call 24x7 and plug-and-play PaaS solutions for specific business sectors or made to measure for individual organizations. Bull is providing its extensive range of expertise in security and running mission-critical systems to deliver high-level services and significant added value.
Philippe Tavernier, Executive Chairman and CEO of Numergy, commented: "We are proud to welcome Bull as a Numergy reseller. With Bull's help, organizations will be able access all the digital energy they need, and benefit from the highest levels of service quality and commitment. For Numergy, this move also underpins the creation of a powerful ecosystem to support growth in industry at a national and European level."
The reseller contract represents a new leap forward for Bull in the Cloud computing market. "Before, the challenge was to prepare for the advent of the Cloud in the business world," said Philippe Miltin, Executive VP at Bull Computing Solutions, "whereas nowadays it is to speed up innovation by taking full advantage of the potential of the Cloud, whether private, public or hybrid. Bull now offers just such an approach, and is ideally positioned to help organizations move from the technological Cloud to the business Cloud. Our reseller contract with Numergy reflects Bull's profound commitment to the Cloud computing market."
An approach based around four Cloud implementation modes
With Le cloud by Bull, Bull helps organizations define and implement service delivery models that combine all their requirements in terms of service levels, security and costs:
Private Cloud: having rationalized and virtualized the Data Center, IT Departments are speeding up the automation of activities in order to migrate towards a secure private Cloud. Bull provides all the necessary expertise to implement the appropriate industrialization and automation tools and roll out the most comprehensive Cloud suites currently available, to form a veritable platform for transformation.
Managed private Cloud: by handing over responsibility for operating their infrastructures - whilst maintaining full overall control - IT Departments can meet the challenges of service quality, agility and security. Some 1,600 experts in IT production and services governance at Bull use a highly secure, industrial-scale network of Data Centers, owned and managed entirely by Bull, to successfully deliver high added value services.
Public Cloud: in a fundamentally changing economic environment, the pressure is intensifying on organizations who need access to the digital resources they require for their business with as much flexibility as possible. Bull provides a range of services covering all kinds of demands: from the standard to the most mission-critical. IaaS on-call 24x7, made-to-measure and business-oriented ready-to-use Cloud platform... all 'Powered by Numergy' and further enhanced with Bull's expertise.
Hybrid Cloud: to ensure that the private Cloud is truly a driver for growth, it must be designed to be open to all Cloud models, by using absolutely services-oriented infrastructures.
