“Publicis Net Chooses Atos Origin to Host a New Events Website”

Paris - September 20, 2007

Atos Worldline, an Atos Origin company has been selected by Publicis Net, Groupe Publicis' interactive agency, to host an events platform. By choosing Atos Worldline to host the new interactive site, Publicis Net will leverage a platform that is specifically configured for high-traffic event sites.

As part of an advertising campaign for one of its major clients, Publicis Net, the Internet unit of Groupe Publicis, one of France's leading advertising agencies, has chosen Atos Worldline to host an interactive web application using Flash technology.

The application enables users to take part in creating a virtual work of art online, adding their own multimedia contributions in the form of drawings or photographs. Other functions allow users to view, add to, and vote for the best work or works of art.

For this high-traffic project, Publicis Net chose Atos Worldline to host the site to ensure handling of peak data flows as well as the considerable fluctuations in traffic during the different phases of the related advertising campaign.

The Atos Worldline service package provides Publicis Net with:

  • A dedicated, certified platform capable of hosting high-traffic applications.
  • A Worldline Booster cache engine capable of absorbing traffic peaks.
  • A web interface that enables Publicis to monitor traffic and user contributions in real time.
  • A secure, 24/7 operating environment capable of supporting highly demanding applications.
  • A support team to ensure responsive service upgrades.
