Fonecta wanted to centralize and standardize its cloud infrastructure to provide its extensive customer base with as scalable and secure integration and development hub. The solution to Fonecta’s need was Ixonos Elastic Cloud™, a scalable and secure virtual private cloud service.
Fonecta is a media company that has evolved from a traditional service provider into a real-time online media company. To facilitate this change, the company has acquired several businesses in the Finnish online and mobile industries. The change naturally put a strain on Fonecta’s IT department. Suddenly there was a patchwork of IT systems and applications from the combined assets of the original and newly acquired businesses. This sprawling infrastructure needed a more centralized approach to IT architecture that could integrate and manage a variety of applications.
To achieve an overhaul of IT systems and to create a more holistic architecture, Fonecta wanted a cloud platform that could serve as an integration hub for all of its applications and data, as well act as a platform to develop and run both internal and external online services. Fonecta selected Ixonos Elastic Cloud, a cloud service designed for business-critical online services.
The underlying infrastructure in Ixonos Elastic Cloud service is built on Red Hat technology, including Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating system, JBoss Enterprise Middleware and JBoss SOA Platform, a complete portfolio to develop and run enterprise-wide online applications. In addition, the cloud service is utilizing the leading virtualized environment – Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization.
With the Ixonos cloud solution, Fonecta can quickly develop new services in order to structure and channel unique data from different applications. The company also benefits from cost savings with a centralized infrastructure and integration architecture, including reduced total cost of ownership from running its own IT systems and applications, doing away with overlapping systems, and using computing resources more efficiently.
