Optimising the number of servers through virtualisation
Atos Origin, a provider of IT services, has signed a five-year IT infrastructure outsourcing contract with Rexel, an electrical supplies distributor.
Under the agreement, Atos Origin will consolidate the infrastructure of Rexel with a new European platform which will enable Rexel to consolidate its data centres and to share its applications in the region.
In addition, Atos Origin will help to transform the Rexel Information Systems in Europe by standardising and automating the operations of the environments, through its offshore centres, and by optimising the number of servers through virtualisation.
This contract will enable Rexel to improve the agility of its information systems, while at the same time improve the resilience through the redundant architecture implemented at two Atos Origin active IT centres.
