COX Automotive has moved all its brands into the cloud with Amazon Web Services.
This includes Autotrader, Manheim and Kelly Blue Book.
The move means Cox can close in excess of 40 data centres it currently operates.
Bryan Landerman, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer at Cox Automotive, commented:
“The agility, flexibility, and breadth of functionality that Amazon Web Services provides has enabled us to quickly migrate, innovate, and scale so that we’re able to meet the demands of our rapidly growing ecosystem and clients.
“Our goal is to modernise our existing products and deliver new cloud-based solutions to make the car buying, selling, and owning processes easier than ever before.
“Amazon Web Services empowers us to get to market quickly, massively scale, and expand our global footprint. We have big plans to drive more innovation as we continue to move the vast majority of our infrastructure to Amazon Web Services.”
Mike Clayville, Vice President, Worldwide Commercial Sales at Amazon Web Services added:
“The process of buying, selling, and trading cars has been around for more than a century, but the landscape has dramatically changed. Top organisations in the space like Cox Automotive are embracing the change and using the cloud to transform their businesses.”
