EDF Renewables chooses OVHcloud to accelerate its digital transformation

EDF Renewables, one of the international leaders in renewable energies, has chosen OVHcloud to host part of its data. This project involves migrating applications and data from EDF Renewables’ IT to Hosted Private Cloud solution in several datacenters located in France and internationally. Such a decision guarantees the confidentiality and interoperability of the data hosted while providing the necessary agility for future EDF Renewables projects.

EDF Renewables’ solar, wind and land-based energy activities generate a rapidly growing volume of data, both in France and internationally. As part of its digital transformation project, the green energy provider has therefore chosen to entrust the hosting and security of this data to OVHcloud.

The Hosted Private Cloud solution will bring a private, highly available and scalable environment. Distributed over several datacenters, it will provide EDF Renewables’ IT system with the hyper-resilience of a confidential certified network.

EDF Renewables has also chosen to integrate its SAP workloads within its migration project. This operation was completed by the recent achievement of SAP certification in Cloud and Infrastructure Operations in all OVHcloud’s French data centers.

“We are delighted to enter this partnership with the French provider OVHcloud. Their offering will allow us to reinforce the security of our data on a trusted cloud. This project, which contributes to our company’s digital transformation, is in line with the strategic directions of the EDF Group, which is particularly involved in the implementation of the Gaia-X ecosystem,” said Vincent Gayrard, Chief Information and Digital Officer at EDF Renewables.

“We welcome the choice made by EDF Renewables, whose articulated needs led us to work hand in hand to offer a service that meets all the requirements of an energy producer, including hyper-resilience on an international scale while respecting the values of a trusted cloud, which is therefore not governed by any extraterritorial laws,” said Caroline Comet-Fraigneau, VP France, Benelux and Africa at OVHcloud.
