ClickView Switches On To BitCloud To Support Digital Video Deployments
Sydney, 3 July 2012 – BitCloud, Australia’s leading provider of cloud-based services and business solutions, has announced that ClickView, an Australia developer and provider of digital video solutions for the education sector, has selected the BitCloud managed cloud hosting service to support its ongoing expansion.
“In recent years, we have experienced significant growth faster than we as a company could handle from an infrastructure perspective. Once we decided that we would replace our existing hosted infrastructure we reviewed our options and chose the cost effective managed cloud services solution provided by BitCloud which has the capacity to scale with our business.
“We believe that we will save around $300,000 per year in IT costs by migrating to the cloud service provided by BitCloud,” says Javier Woodhouse, Head of Development, ClickView.
ClickView has grown to become an industry leading company producing ground-breaking software applications for the education market. Its solutions enable schools to store, manage and deliver high definition video via their existing network providing teachers and students with access to thousands of high-quality educational videos from many of Australia's leading content providers.
As a result, ClickView gives schools the flexibility to create and grow a digital video library to ensure teachers and students have access to the most up to date, curriculum matched content available.
ClickView assessed several large IT providers as well as a number of small Australian cloud solution providers prior to deploying BitCloud
“We found that managed services solutions from the larger-sized IT companies were all hosted outside of Australia. As our company and customers are primarily located in Australia we felt that hosting outside the region would mean slower sites and slower upload times for teachers and students within our customer base.
“At the same time, we found that many Australian providers were selling virtualised solutions labelled as cloud solutions. These lacked the growth and management options we consider to be vital to a real cloud system. We found BitCloud’s offering to be an honest cloud solution and not just marketing,” says Woodhouse.
BitCloud has provided a high-availability solution which spans multiple cloud nodes, allows load balancing of selected services and a fully redundant storage platform shared amongst dozens of virtual machines.
“We now have an IT environment where scaling is no longer a concern while at the same time we have a highly skilled team managing and supporting this infrastructure. We are now able to focus on our core business in software development with all infrastructure issues handled by BitCloud which is one of the few truly cloud-based services in Australia, matching product on offer with core cloud values such as scalability, pricing and service,” says Woodhouse.
BitCloud provides a large range of cloud based solutions including on-demand cloud computing, cloud hosting, cloud storage, business continuity and disaster recovery solutions, desktop as a service, and hosted Exchange/Sharepoint services.
BitCloud is 100 per cent Australian owned with all staff and data centres located within Australia, providing 24/7 phone and email support.
