Press Release

Cast Iron Cloud Integrates Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud

Cast Iron Accelerates Data Migration and Application Integration

Cast Iron Systems, a provider of SaaS and Cloud Integration company, has announced that Cast Iron is leveraging Amazon Web Services (AWS) to offer customers a faster way to move enterprise applications to the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2). The Cast Iron Cloud, now also on Amazon EC2, enables customers to take advantage of the speed, reliability, and cost efficiency of Amazon EC2 within days. Cast Iron's preconfigured data migration and integration templates for hundreds of enterprise applications expedite customer on-boarding to AWS. The combination of Cast Iron and AWS give customers the ability to benefit from cloud services as quickly as possible.

"As enterprises increasingly look to Amazon Web Services for highly scalable, reliable and cost effective computing resources, services like Cast Iron migration and integration solutions provide an onramp to move enterprise data to Amazon EC2 and connect their enterprise applications regardless of where those applications reside," said Terry Wise, director of business development for Amazon Web Services.

Why Customers Use Cast Iron

According to Gartner, "The rapid adoption of cloud computing and SaaS-based functionality during the past few years, combined with increasing demand from end users for improved integration of business data and processes between the cloud and their on-premise applications, has created an acute need for solutions to address cloud computing/SaaS integration... Companies across all industries and geographies that use cloud-computing based business software functionality will... want to integrate that functionality with on-premise applications and data to improve multi-enterprise process integrity. Doing so can save money (e.g., by reducing manual data entry using a browser) and generate revenue (e.g., by improving customer satisfaction and competitive advantage by ensuring that master customer data is automatically synchronized between cloud-based and on-premise business software)."

"The Cast Iron Cloud on Amazon EC2 fulfills these integration needs," said Ken Comée, CEO of Cast Iron Systems. "It helps companies quickly realize the benefits of AWS by providing preconfigured migration and integration templates that eliminate the necessity to expend limited resources on writing custom code, using complex integration platforms, or acquiring deep middleware expertise."
