Saberion launches cloud computing from AWS in Sri Lanka
Tuesday, 17 December 2013 00:01
Amazon Web Services (AWS) the world leader in cloud hosting solutions was officially launched in Sri Lanka by their local implementation and consulting partner Saberion Limited. The launch event was held at Cinnamon Lakeside, with the AWS regional management team in attendance along with senior management and industry figures of several leading local and multinational organisations.
Launched in 2006, Jeff Bezos’s Amazon eCommerce business, AWS has gone on to re-invent and dominate cloud infrastructure solutions. Today Amazon Web Services provides a highly reliable, scalable, low-cost infrastructure platform in the cloud that powers hundreds of thousands of enterprise, government and start-up businesses in 190 countries around the world.
Not just another hosting provider, AWS is a world leader that takes advantage of Amazon.com’s global computing infrastructure. This is the backbone of Amazon.coms $ 15 billion+ retail business and transactional enterprise whose scalable, reliable and secure distributed computing infrastructure has been honed for over 13 years. Using AWS, businesses can take advantage of Amazon’s expertise and economies of scale to access resources when their business needs them, delivering results faster and at a lower cost.
“With AWS the potential growth for any organisation is mind-blowing. Saberion at any given time manages around 400 solutions on the cloud including our own solutions built for over 300 leading local and international organisations,” said Saberion Limited Co-founder Mufaddal Lukmanjee. “AWS allows us to easily requisition computing power, storage and other services gaining access to a suite of elastic IT infrastructure services whenever and wherever our clients demand them. You pay only for what you use with no up-front expenses or long-term commitments, making AWS a cost-effective way to deliver your application to your customers.”
Using Amazon Web Services, an e-commerce website can weather and scale unforeseen demand with ease; a pharmaceutical company can rent computing power to execute large-scale simulations; a media company can serve unlimited videos and music; a government entity can archive and retrieve massive volumes of information and an enterprise can deploy bandwidth-consuming services and training to its mobile workforce.
Hassle free solutions
“We believe that AWS will change the mindset of any organisation looking to move their services and products online and the team at Saberion is excited to start exploring the potential with the Sri Lankan market,” commented Saberion Limited Co-founder Sanjiv Alles. “Our trained and certified resources are able to manage the entire process, offering hassle free solutions and local billing facilities to our clientele.”
Saberion who set an internal challenge since the official launch of AWS in Sri Lanka to migrate 30 clients in 30 days to the Amazon Cloud Infrastructure, were proud to announce that this target was achieved and they are continuing to migrate one customer a day to the cloud
