The French cloud welcomes Bouygues Telecom, which launches its offer – RFID-Ready
It did not take long for Bouygues Telecom to take the Orange and Free route. In addition to offering Internet access packages through its activity as a telecommunications operator, web hosting and the cloud are now also integrated into its portfolio of activities.
Bouygues Telecom starts up in the cloud
To mark the occasion, a new online store has been launched, Bouygues Telecom Entreprises OnCloud, and the main customers will be SMEs looking for French solutions to host their web platforms, a trend that has accelerated especially since the pandemic. .
Bouygyes Telecom’s buzzword will be national sovereignty as its new entity competes to earn a new Cloud of Trust badge to be issued by government services. The label was presented at Bercy on May 17th with the aim of promoting solutions in France.
However, as Informatique News reports, the label access log is quite long and tedious. Given the experience of historical players, Bouygues Telecom must be certified by ANSSI “SecNumCloud”. And it can take months or even years.
Free and Orange have already invested in the sector compared to French OVHcloud (which wants to go public), but their offer is not explicitly linked to operators. Free clients use Scaleway and Orange OBS clients. SFR did not provide any information on a possible market entry project.
Basically, Bouygues Telecom’s offer is initially based on two French data centers. There will be public, private and hybrid clouds, the company reported on Monday. Usually, the private cloud attracts even more large groups when its infrastructure is colossal.
“We are delighted to resize Bouygues Telecom Entreprises today and to become a full-fledged sovereign player under French law at a time when cloud cards are being reshuffled and our businesses and communities are digitally transforming,” wrote Bouygues Telecom in a press release.
