Orange Cloud Project – federation of Group and customers’ cloud resources
To provide a unified experience to the Group and its customers in France and all over the world, France Telecom-Orange entrusted Orange Business Services with its new Orange Cloud Project. The objective of this project is to federate the cloud computing expertise of the Group and to migrate all IaaS-based (Infrastructure as a Service) projects to Orange Business Services' Flexible Computing platform. By pooling internal and external cloud resources, the Orange Cloud Project intends to: reach critical mass on the cloud computing market; standardize the approach to accelerate time-to-market of new offers and optimize costs and deployment; and improve user experience. The Orange Cloud Project also stimulates innovation and provides new opportunities for Orange Business Services to launch new PaaS (Platform as a Service) solutions. PaaS solutions will allow companies to develop their own applications hosted within Orange Business Services infrastructures.
