2CRSi and Linkoffice, the B2B VDI expert, signed yesterday a contract for the supply of compute and storage servers.
The contract covers the supply of a hardware and software infrastructure that integrates Xeon® Platinum processors, Intel®’s most leading-edge processors to date. The first firm order (around one-quarter of the total) will be delivered in 2020. Subsequent orders will depend, among other things, on the successful execution of the first delivery. The contract period is four years.
2CRSi’s technical solution includes a direct liquid cooling system and a very high data storage capacity. For reasons of reliability and national preference, the platform will be hosted at a French datacentre which, combined with a system for reusing waste heat, will help to sharply reduce Linkoffice’s ecological footprint and operating costs.
The COVID-19 health crisis has sparked an acceleration of certain trends within corporates. Broader use of remote working has led to an increased need for an “office linkup” that is robust, permanent, and secure. During this unprecedented crisis, Linkoffice successfully supported all its clients in implementing a home office working model (more than 10,000 employees in less than 48 hours), demonstrating once again the reliability and simplicity of its solution for accountancy firms.
Under the contract, Linkoffice will benefit from 2CRSi's commercial backing: the Linkoffice offering will henceforth be proposed across the Group’s entire distribution network in France and abroad, both among accountancy firms and in various other areas in which information confidentiality is a critical stake.
This new order from Linkoffice, a new client of 2CRSi, puts it among the company's top 20 French clients in 2020.
