Social TV SaaS Company Leaves AWS for Cloud 2.0 Provider
ProfitBricks, the infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) company that completely reengineered the delivery of cloud computing, today announced that SaaS company Tomorrowish® has switched from Amazon Web Services (AWS) to ProfitBricks’ cloud 2.0 solution
Cambridge, 06/05/2013 – Tomorrowish is the first Social Media DVR™, allowing viewers of popular TV shows to read and send tweets in a real-time synchronized feed while viewing previously aired episodes. Tomorrowish was initially built on Amazon’s EC2 Cloud, but early in the development process Tomorrowish Founder and President Mick Darling reached out to President of Enfold I.T.Dan Afonso for technical guidance in exploring AWS alternatives.
“Although we initially did our work on the EC2 Cloud, we didn’t like the way AWS forced us into their development model,” said Darling. “What we could set-up and configure on a private server in an hour took a full day on AWS.” “….ProfitBricks allows us to fully-modify the three essential configuration points - CPU cores, RAM and storage – including vertically scaling our MySQL servers up to 196GB of RAM. This enables us to architect for our specific needs and requirements, achieving optimum resources at an ideal price,” said Darling.
With these criteria in mind, Tomorrowish moved from AWS to ProfitBricks.
A full explanation of why Tomorrowish chose ProfitBricks can be read in the Tomorrowish Cloud 2.0 case study.
