eZ Systems goes „full cloud“
eZ Systems releases new eZ Cloud Edition with the support of Ixonos
Skien, Norway – February 7 2012 – The demand for flexible and reliable cloud solutions in the area of content management will continue its steady rise in 2012. The Norwegian software vendor eZ Systems (www.ez.no) is keeping up with the trend: eZ Systems, in cooperation with the Finland-based cloud solutions provider Ixonos (www.ixonos.com), begins distributing the cloud edition of its award-winning open source web content management platform eZ Publish by the 1st of February 2012, and adds the new eZ Cloud Elastic to its range of products. eZ Cloud Elastic enables customers and eZ Service Partners to automatically receive the cloud resources they require, such as the necessary frontend-servers, depending on their needs and their user traffic. This way, eZ Systems and Ixonos will be able to offer customised cloud-based content management solutions to their customers.
The upcoming cloud edition is based on the most recent release of eZ Publish Enterprise. With the support of Ixonos Elastic Cloud, running on top of Red Hat Cloud (www.redhat.com), eZ Systems will be able to offer customers of the Cloud Edition the same level of quality and support they know from eZ Publish Enterprise. It includes service, assistance during the implementation and updates on a regular basis. This way, eZ Systems ensures stability of its product while continuing innovation. The international eZ Partners network offers its customers high quality options to carry out projects in time and in budget. The eZ Service Partners assist customers in all important aspects, such as implementation, consulting and support. Via the integrated eZ Market, users are able to enhance their content management requirements with several certified apps, extensions or connectors.
