Compliance you can trust

"Azure is hyper-scalable, and we were able to run high-performance computing (HPC) benchmarks up to 20K cores in Europe, as well as on datacenters in France, with exceptional performance. With the Activeeon Orchestrator, it took only 15 minutes to raise and deploy 20,000 cores to Azure, and plan for 20,000 tasks. Responsiveness is also impressive, with a response time of less than 90 milliseconds for 99 percent of requests."Denis Caromel, CEO, Activeeon
"The inauguration of new Microsoft Azure implantations in France represents a great opportunity to improve our solution for the benefit of our French customers. By reducing the latency between visitors to the sites we measure in real time, and our platform, we improve the accuracy of our system and can be even more precise in the information and advice we provide our customers."Guillaume Belmas, CEO, Realytics
"A car is becoming increasingly connected, intelligent, and personal.
