Bull to host and operate mon.service-public.fr
As part of its mission to modernize the way that government operates and is managed, the DIMAP (French State Modernization Agency) has launched a vast program aimed at simplifying administrative processes, for all users of public services. At the heart of this program, mon.service-public.fr enables users to carry out numerous tasks on line, monitor the progress of their interactions and save documents published by the government and its partners in a secure area of the site. This mass-market application - which is destined to receive several tens of millions of hits a year - has to respond to highly exacting requirements in terms of availability, security of exchanges, confidentiality of personal data and robustness. In total, almost 130 servers have been deployed to run the integration, pre-production and production environments. The application is being hosted and operated at a Bull Data Center in two independent cold sites, running 24x7 with 99.8% availability.
