Weblogics makes its Cloud play

Australian enterprise software company, Weblogics, has entered the Cloud space with the launch of its flagship Intralogic suite on the Amazon Cloud platform.

Weblogics made the move to broaden its market reach. It selected Amazon Web Services (AWS) as it offered the "best resources for the company's customers."

Intralogic on Amazon provides a suite of collaboration and knowledge management tools for staff, allowing organisations to manage content, documents, CAD drawings, emails and business processes.

"Intralogic on Amazon removes the need for customers to invest in IT and the technical staff needed to maintain it," Weblogics managing director, Jonathan Harris, said. "For Weblogics, this opens the door to thousands of businesses who need to use IT, but don't want to own it."

"People are moving away from complex internal systems; they want rapid deployment without any lock-in."

Harris said Intralogic on Amazon will also give customers on-demand ability to scale services to meet immediate needs.

Customers will have access to the solution on a pay-as-you-go basis.

Intralogic was previously available as an 'off-the-shelf business intranet'. Weblogics said it was popular with companies looking for alternatives to 'build-your-own products' like Microsoft SharePoint.

Weblogics said thus far, two long-standing customers, a family organisation in New South Wales (NSW) and a South Australian (SA) government department, have migrated their Intralogic deployments to the AWS platform.

In addition to the proposed customer benefits, Weblogics will use the AWS platform to support internal development. Harris said the company will run its internal services of Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) and use Elastic Block Store (EBS) and S3 for storage.

"Like any other business, we have an investment in rack servers, we maintain security systems and we spend considerable resources managing our development, demonstration and customer service processes," he said. "Our goal is to lower those costs and reduce risk."
