Challenge

OzHosting.com used a proprietary platform, which was built and operated by a large development team. It required 8 staff members just to manage the platform and ensure that it could support the latest software releases. The lead time for this was slow, taking a few months to a year to enable its platform to support each new release.

Solution

OzHosting replaced its proprietary platform with Ingram Micro Cloud to provide a single, centralised console for managing the offer and delivery of its cloud services. Using Ingram Micro Cloud APS, OzHosting can offer various cloud services in bundles customised for its target customers.

Results

  • Offer multiple products as an integrated service through a user-friendly interface
  • Access to best-of-breed products
  • Reduced time-to-market for new cloud services and latest releases
  • Facilitates market expansion beyond Australia without building own infrastructure
