Avianis Takes Off With OpSource Cloud

Leading Flight Management Company Uses Cloud Computing to Save 75 Percent Over Traditional Datacenter Costs

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - March 15, 2010) - OpSource™, the leader in enterprise-class hosting and services, today announced that flight management company Avianis has saved 75 percent over traditional hosting costs and increased customer confidence by moving its application to OpSource Cloud, the first cloud computing solution to bring together the flexibility, availability and community of the public cloud with enterprise-class security, performance and control. Not only was Avianis able to move its entire application to the Cloud in less than two weeks, with no re-architecting required but, by taking advantage of OpSource Cloud's 100 percent SLA and compliance features, the company has seen customer satisfaction immediately soar.

"We looked at numerous cloud solutions, including Amazon EC2 and Microsoft Azure, but there was a very large development effort needed to port to either of these. On the other hand, we could move to OpSource Cloud without making any code changes at all," said Daniel Tharp, President and CEO, Avianis. "We wanted a cloud that you could control all the way down to the OS, with a breadth of services like billing that we could deploy as we grow. OpSource Cloud has given us all of these features -- and, through its 100 percent SLA, it's bringing us the kind of always-on performance that has made our customers take notice."

Avianis is focused on the business aviation industry, managing the flight schedules, personnel regulatory records and the general operating logistics of corporate and privately owned aircraft. Avianis serves a wide range of flight operations, from charter, corporate, and fractional ownership setups to large government and military support operations. At any time, the Avianis system is controlling the schedules and data of hundreds of aircraft on every continent except Asia. Formerly known as Trindigo, the company's rebranding, also announced today, is part of a concerted effort to quickly grow its worldwide footprint -- and having a cloud infrastructure that could grow with its business was integral to Avianis' plans.

"Our service has been a great success and we are now at the point where we want to expand our business. Cloud computing gives us the infrastructure we need to grow rapidly but stably," Tharp continued. "And OpSource Cloud alone offered us the level of compliance and security that we needed to bring our business to the next level."

When dealing with aviation plans, security is an important issue. OpSource Cloud addresses this need by providing every customer with a private cloud within the public cloud, allowing Avianis tight control over its application's degree of Internet connectivity. OpSource Cloud also offers enterprise-quality controls, including user level login/password and operational permissions, all backed by a 100 percent SLA. This level of increased control means that Avianis can be sure that users can only access their own flight data, ensuring privacy and safety.

"The Avianis story is a great example of how moving to the cloud can not only save a company money but can enhance its performance and growth potential," said Treb Ryan, CEO, OpSource. "We look forward to helping Avianis expand its worldwide footprint while maintaining the great quality that has made its application such a success."
