New for Onit clients: Enhanced Global Scalability with Amazon Web Services
Onit is pleased to announce that we’ve added Amazon Web Services (AWS) to our infrastructure. The new architecture will easily align with our clients’ business needs worldwide, regardless of size or capacity. Clients will have the industry’s best reliability, with AWS designed with fault tolerance and high availability as the core objectives.
Chris Fields, chief technology officer at Onit, talked more in-depth about the project on a recent podcast. He explained that 100% of the company’s clients are now on AWS and shared an example of how this positively impacts them:
“One of the most common aspects of the enterprise legal management space is that corporate legal departments need more capacity at their quarters’ ends. When those times come, we can quickly spin up capacity within minutes to support their needs and then back it off automatically.”
Amazon Web Services provides a highly reliable, scalable, low-cost infrastructure platform in the cloud that powers hundreds of thousands of businesses in 190 countries around the world. Among its many features are agility, flexibility and security. The elastic computing AWS architecture allows Onit and its clients to scale effortlessly, globally and on-demand.
“A large number of our clients are familiar with Amazon Web Services themselves and they’re reaching out to explore how we can leverage the technology together. Many clients also have seen our fast growth and appreciate that we are investing in infrastructure,” he said.
The transition resulted in zero downtime, thanks to a sizeable Onit team devoted to the project. As Chris joked, “We go ‘all hands on deck’ for big projects here at Onit. There were so many people to thank I had to make a video with Star Wars credits.”
