Orange Partnering the Réunion des Musées Nationaux (RMN) Museum Association for site

For the Claude Monet (1840-1926) exhibition at the Grand Palais from September 22, Orange is proud to be partnering the Réunion des Musées Nationaux (RMN) association on its “Digital Monet” project.

Orange would like to accompany French museums in their digital development, particularly with a view to reaching a target of young people who may not be particularly familiar with the world of museums.

Orange Business Services, the France Telecom-Orange branch dedicated to B2B services for business services worldwide, is making its technological expertise available to the RMN in order to contribute towards the growing presence of French artistic heritage around the world.

With 300,000 visits expected each month, possibly peaking at 30,000 connections per day, the site must be based on an infrastructure which is capable of guaranteeing a high level of performance, security, reliability and availability for content. To meet these needs, Orange Business Services is providing the RMN with a complete service to host and operate the site based on a secure innovative infrastructure, with a cloud computing approach, making it possible to automatically adapt to peaks in visits, delivering IT resources on demand. In this way, the RMN is benefiting from a turnkey service, with Orange guaranteeing a high level of availability.

“The RMN has particularly appreciated the quality of Orange Business Services’ involvement for hosting the site, especially for the technical architecture offered, as well as the dedication shown by its engineers. Indeed, these engineers, through their availability and their sustained exchanges with the site’s developers, have made it possible to achieve a perfect fit between the quality of the IT programming and the particularly complex deployment of the hosting server architecture”, confirms Virginie D’Allens, Head of the RMN multimediadepartment.

To enable web users to enjoy the best possible virtual visit, the site is based on a video streaming solution through Orange WebTV.
