DIRISI modernizes its operations with Bull’s help

Defense. The only secure IT operator for the French Ministry of Defense, DIRISI (the Inter-Forces Networks, Infrastructure and Information Systems Directorate), is drawing on Bull’s IT operations expertise under a framework contract, which enables it to effectively combine agility and expertise while still following the strict rules governing public procurement.

Xerox relies on bullion for its critical applications

Video. In order to virtualize its mission-critical and core paperless processing and document management applications, Xerox GDO France (Xerox’s document management outsourcing business) has chosen bullion servers from Bull, which are delivering tangible results in terms of availability, agility and energy efficiency.

Executive opinion. The Internet ubiquity, hungry demand for mobility and rise of the Cloud are breaking protective barriers in cyber-space, where ever more sophisticated and hidden dangers have increasingly serious consequences.
