The four companies -- Linagora, Mandriva, Siveo and Ubiqube -- specialize in cloud computing and came to Vietnam on a collective mission organized by the UBIFRANCE, the French agency for international business development, under France's Ministry for the Economy, Finance and Trade.
The seminar with Vietnamees companies, entitled "Development of cloud computing in Vietnam", organized by UBIFRANCE in coordination with Vietnam's Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC), is
one activity in the France Vietnam year, kicked off in April to mark the 40th year of the diplomatic relation of the two countries.

It intends to reinforce the links between French and Vietnamese players in the intelligent technology sector, in compliance with the Vietnamese government's objective to promote the development of information and communication technologies so as to make this sector one of the main leverage points for the country's economic expansion.

Speaking at the meeting, Michel Drobniak, Counselor for Economic Affairs of the Embassy of France in Vietnam, said the cloud computing market in France is expected to reach 2 billion euros (US$2.7 billion) in profit this year, up 46 percent over last year.

With success in local market, major French companies in the field are expecting to expand their businesses in foreign countries, he said, ICT News reported Friday.

Cloud computing is used to refer to network-based services which appear to be provided by real server hardware, which in fact are served up by virtual hardware, simulated by software running on one or more real machines.

Such virtual servers do not physically exist and can therefore be moved around and scaled up (or down)  without affecting the end user - arguably, rather like a cloud.

The service provides the means through which everything "” from computing power to computing infrastructure, applications, business processes to personal collaboration "” can be delivered to users as a service wherever and whenever they need.
