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.  

More than 100 employees from EDF Energy are transferring to Atos and will continue to be based at EDF Energy locations.

Nigel Pettifer, datacentre head at EDF, said the company went with Atos after a 12-month procurement process. He said Atos demonstrated the necessary capacity and expertise. 

"The new solution will enable us to run our business more cost-effectively while improving the resilience and flexibility of our IT infrastructure,” Pettifer said.
