EDF (Electricité de France) is launching a project to renovate and unify all its collaborative and email solutions for the whole group. EDF SA and ERDF together have one of the biggest IT asset in France with 160,000 users.
The Bull-Osiatis consortium will be providing an end-to-end solution combining modern, integrated email, file-sharing, video-conferencing and instant messaging solutions. The consortium will be providing the following services:
• Engineering and implementation of a private cloud infrastructure
• Business continuity for the current solution
• Migration to Microsoft solutions
• Secure running of these unified solutions and management via a service catalogue, on a pay-per-use basis.

The highly secure, scalable, redundant infrastructures will be hosted at two of EDF Group’s data centers. They include 68 bullion servers, 400 virtual machines and 1000 TB of storage.
This effective solution will thus be able to serve the client’s 160,000 users and will be monitored and administrated remotely from Bull and Osiatis’ secure service facilities. This is currently the world’s largest private cloud infrastructure project using Microsoft technologies.
