“Atos Origin and Euronext sign a web hosting agreement”
Paris, 5 October 2006
Atos Worldline, an Atos Origin Company, announces the signature of a three-year contract with Euronext. As a long-standing client of Atos Origin, Euronext will be entrusting Atos Worldline with the hosting, operating and technical maintenance of its web sites aimed at both members of the public and professionals as well as with its corporate intranet. Euronext aims at responding to increases in traffic volumes and optimising its operating costs.
Euronext was searching for a service provider to support it in the deployment of its Internet services and help it to cope with the increase in traffic volumes across its web sites, which have registered a 40% increase in pages viewed since the end of 2005.
As a long-standing client of the Atos Origin group, Euronext selected Atos Worldline to manage the hosting of all its web sites on a dedicated platform, as well as their running. Previously, Atos Worldline took charge of supervising Euronext Internet sites during their migration onto its technology platform. The complexity of this project consisted in completely recreating an entire platform and migrating its data securely in a very short time-scale, while ensuring continuity of service in the meantime.
“Atos Worldline was able to meet our requirements in terms of service quality and continuity and also in terms of operating costs optimization. The expertise of our partner in dedicated hosting and its ability to consistently meet the requirements and expectations of strategic players in the operation and maintenance of their web sites, will enable us to face the major increase in traffic volumes across our web sites and meet our targets for the growth of our Internet-based services” said Gilles Tréhin, in charge of Internet infrastructures at Euronext.
