BT has announced two new cloud contract wins with the European Commission.

The UK-based operator’s Global Services arm will provide public and private cloud services across 52 European institutions, agencies and bodies, including the European Parliament and the European Council.

The services will be hosted from several data centres located across the continent, which “guarantee” that all customer data will remain within the EU.

BT said it is one of five providers competing for EC public cloud projects.

The two contracts run for “up to” four years and have a combined worth of more than €24 million.

The new contracts build on deals BT signed last year to provide fixed voice services and dedicated internet access to Brussels.

It is the second major enterprise deal BT has announced this year.

Last week, it signed a six-year contract with Nationwide to update the building society’s network infrastructure.

BT Global Services saw revenues decline six percent in the six months to September 2015, its most recent financial results, which it blamed in part on contracts in the UK public sector ending.
