OBS Orange's B to B operator has just announced a crucial partnership with AWS. This will allow OBS customers to access AWS services through a one-stop-shop.
After having already terminated partnerships with the cloud branches of Microsoft and Google, the B to B branch of Orange, Orange Business Services (OBS), is more strengthening its support for multi-cloud by completing an unprecedented partnership with Amazon Web Services ( AWS). The operator has just announced that it has entered into a partnership with the cloud branch of the e-commerce giant, which according to its management will result in "new products and services to stimulate the transition of companies to the cloud".
The objective for OBS is to ensure the strike force of AWS in the cloud and to allow its customers to access the offers of the American giant via a single window. A challenge for OBS, which now wishes to internationalize its clientele and record more income outside French borders, by strengthening its multi-cloud measurements.
Hence the importance for the B2B operator to forge large-scale partnerships with international players such as Google or AWS. “We are in the age of multi-cloud. On average, a company now uses five cloud computing services ”, already summarized in 2018 Stefan Kanis, Senior Vice President of OBS Cloud activity.
