EROAD extends partnership with Amazon

Kiwi transport technology and services provider provides case study on using cloud services for international growth in AWS website.

EROAD has extended its relationship with AWS, migrating its New Zealand business from a physical-based infrastructure to the Amazon enterprise cloud this month.

EROAD partnered with the cloud service provider in 2013 to aid its expansion into Australia and North America.

Jarred Clayton, EROAD engineering manager, says the company’s choice of AWS supports its rapid global expansion, but also provides significant benefits to existing customers, with faster access to data, high availability, and analytics as a service.

“The big data insights we’re now able to offer our customers allows them to blend their own commercial data using connectors at a rapid pace at commodity prices,” says Clayton in a statement,

EROAD uses the AWS Sydney Region for its New Zealand and Australia business systems, with the US system hosted in Amazon Virtual Private Clouds in Oregon.

Clayton says the move to AWS allows EROAD to build new environments in minutes, across multiple regions and availability zones; giving it the scalability and resilience it needs to expand into markets like the US and Australia.
