Cloud Automation on a Global Scale
Like many large companies, Reed Elsevier knew the benefits of cloud computing technology but were unsure of their readiness to deploy and support it. With the launch of a new flagship product for a globally distributed customer base, they knew they needed leaner operations to take advantage of new technology and to stay competitive.
Following our assessment of their existing systems and IT capabilities, Control Group designed and implemented an automated Amazon Web Services cloud deployment system and associated support plan. With this new agile infrastructure and DevOps methodology in place, Elsevier is able to deploy applications on a global scale without having to build data centers around the world. They can spin up or dial down capacity on-demand, lowering capital and resource costs, while increasing operational efficiency.
