Atos, a global leader in digital transformation, announces that its BullSequana S800 servers will be marketed to the French State Procurement Department (DAE), as part of a tender won by its partner SCC, a European leader in digital services and solutions. This three-year contract aims to offer the BullSequana S to large French public administrations and public structures.
Originating from Atos’ R&D France department at its site at Les Clayes-sous-bois and produced at the Group’s factory in Angers, the BullSequana S800 high-end server meets the performance, reliability and cost optimization requirements of public sector organizations.
