Among its many improvements, the latest version of Ektron also includes a refreshed and updated cloud manager that allows users to launch websites into the cloud, eliminating the need for on-premise hardware or IT support. Not only does this reduce costs to a great extent but the time-to-market as well, significantly improving ROI.
Ektron’s new cloud manager comes with wizard-based cloud provisioning, which allows site content to be created in an on-premise environment, but then deployed on a cloud platform. This sort of hybrid deployment ensures that while sensitive company information and data is hosted locally, but can still enjoy all the advantages of a cloud delivery system.
Another great strength of this system is the scalability. Because it is on the cloud, server resources can be scaled according to requirements, which ensures optimal usage of resources. Thus, only during spikes of activity or traffic need additional resources can be utilised. Conversely, this also ensures the company website does not go down due to a sudden rise in traffic.
The new Ektron Cloud Manager is a robust and powerful solution that supports both Microsoft Windows Azure and Amazon EC2. This is what Microsoft’s Nicole Denil, Director of Americas ISV, Windows Azure Incubation had to say about it
“In the competitive landscape of website development, speed matters. Microsoft is excited to see Ektron support the Windows Azure cloud.“
No wonder we, along with the entire Ektron community, are excited to see what this new update can do for our customers in the days ahead.
