Companies that use AWS Cloud:
Newscorp is a leading media company in the world with diversified media, news, education and information services
News Corp Australia has multiple high traffic finance applications that used Akamai for caching while the traffic to these applications was predominately from Australia. Akamai did not have an endpoint in Australia, and the application updates are in 5-minute increments across many vendor platforms, SaaS-based applications some data retrievals from inside private networks. As embedded widgets from this finance application are seen on many news stories impact of an outage or degraded performance has a global impact. Also, needed to develop a new brand and test business viability of an internet-based concept quickly.
Software WORX developed an Amazon EC2, S3, Cloudfront to replace Akamai that had multiple end points in Australia, CloudWatch, Elastic load balancers, Amazon RDS, with clustered replication. Scale up of the Amazon RDS instance allowed handling of peak loads across the board while the forced cache refreshes trigged by the application replicated cached information selectively based on data changes from external data feeds. Leveraging many technical concepts of aggregating content from various sources over API, XML feeds, JSON, business logic and amalgamate existing content to create a new brand platform in few months.
- Cost savings of moving from Akamai to AWS Cloudfront along with better response times and control over cache refreshes across Cloudfront technologies. Public-private cloud interactions reduced costs associated with the prior application.
- Rapid time to market
- Ability to test and scale business viable concepts
- Scale up development capability on demand
