This autumn, drawing on its capacity for innovation and its expertise in computing power and security technologies, Bull is further strengthening its Extreme Computing, cloud computing and large-scale enterprise server offerings.
We took the opportunity of the SC’11 supercomputing conference in Seattle, USA, to launch the latest generation of our bullx supercomputers; featuring twice the processing power and a spectacular increase in HPC center energy efficiency, thanks to highly innovative Bull technologies. And our whole team of experts is very proud that, at this event, Tera 100 was awarded two new distinctions by the HPC community which firmly place us at the very highest level worldwide.
We have just launched our new range of solutions: Le cloud by Bull. A revolution taking place right now, cloud computing is especially well suited to the current economic climate, where flexibility and cost control are vital. Bull is fully committed to supporting your journey to the cloud. By tackling issues of security, service continuity, data management and information systems governance very early in the process, we offer a pragmatic approach for a smooth transition to the enterprise cloud. Le cloud by Bull draws on all the Group’s key areas of expertise and combines consultancy, specific technological components – especially the bullion cloud platform server, designed to speed up the implementation of private clouds – security solutions and our hosting capabilities.
And finally, we have also updated our GCOS 7 mainframes; whose performance has also been doubled to help our customers meet the information management challenges that they face. Featuring a new architecture from the Extreme Computing area, combined with technologies specially developed to support critical applications, they are more flexible, even more open and particularly environmentally friendly.
These high-performance, reliable and secure solutions will enable you to respond positively and decisively to economic, environmental and social challenges. And you can rely on our experts to support you through the coming transitions and help you seize the great opportunities of the digital world, as illustrated, in particular, by Frédéric Debord, Managing Director of Moroccan telecoms operator inwi.
Thank you again for your trust in Bull.
Philippe Vannier - Chairman and CEO, Bull
