Looking to boost cost-effectiveness and processing efficiency, DS3 recently joined forces with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to achieve this goal. By moving its authentication servers to the AWS cloud, DS3 can now provide its authentication solutions to customers without the enormous costs traditionally associated with purchasing and maintaining hardware servers. The cost of doing business is now more affordable.
DS3 decided that Amazon offered the best solution because the AWS cloud is an effective and affordable conduit for delivering the DS3 authentication solutions. DS3 uses Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) for authentication and transaction authorization services. Authentication is a vital part of today’s business world, and the dependability of Amazon EC2 ensures that authentication is delivered securely.
According to Mr Tan Teik Guan, CEO, DS3 also chose Amazon because “ready to go Amazon Machine Image (AMI) instances are quick to deploy, and the pay-as-you go billing frees customers from contracts or monthly commitments – as they only need to pay by the hour for what they use. The AWS platform is a great opportunity for DS3 to provide greater business value, in the form of time and cost savings, and reach out to worldwide customers.”
Although the AWS platform offers many outstanding features, Mr Tan Teik Guan especially likes that “the AWS pay-as-you go model is attractive to customers who demand a multi-factor authentication solution but are daunted by the high start-up and maintenance costs associated with physical servers.”
The AWS solution has empowered DS3 to realize the potential of cloud computing as an effective means of lowering costs while increasing productivity. The AWS cloud is also a valuable conduit for reaching a wider global audience, especially in countries where DS3 does not have a physical presence. Reveling in the success of the AWS solution, DS3 has devised plans to introduce other products with Amazon EC2 architecture.
