  • Needed a more flexible, cloud-based architecture to support expansion into new regions.
  • Wanted to liberate its infrastructure team from time-consuming system management and provide on-demand scalability.
  • Required a highly available infrastructure and the ability to develop new services quickly to meet customer requirements.
  • Peace of mind from “phenomenal” uptime: Chief Technology Officer Toby Young says that Ebury has experienced no outages with AWS, and availability has been excellent compared with its previous supplier.
  • Lean IT and happy customers: With less time spent on system admin, Ebury can scale to meet the demands of its customer base without increasing the size of its infrastructure team.
  • Support for an expanding portfolio: Ebury is able to use AWS to offer software as a service to its clients, creating new business opportunities. The firm manages an entire instance of its stack on behalf of one of its customers.
