EDF signs £100m datacentre deal with Atos

Can you believe it; people are still signing ten year deals!

Energy company EDF has signed a £100m 10-year deal with Atos to provide datacentre services.  The contract is intended to consolidate EDF Energy’s datacentre infrastructure and cut costs by more than 20% over the next decade. Atos will provide EDF Energy with additional datacentre capacity to meet increased demand. It will rationalise the existing datacentre facilities, by introducing services from its global network of datacentres. It will also improve service resilience.  

Ten years is a really long time in the IT industry; I just hope EDF negotiated a great contract that include year-on-year innovation, technology improvements and cost reductions.
