					Businesses Adopt New Amazon Cloud on First Day of Operation

Tuesday 13th November 2012 marked the official launch of eCoachManager, a
cloud based SAAS (Software-As-A-Service) development, onto Australian
soil.

Sydney, Australia, November 15, 2012 -- eCoachManager, developed by
PPCnSEO, is an all in one, booking, website and business management tool
tailored to simplify the running of any bus charter, bus trips or self
drive company. Originally developed for the UK market, it has recently
expanded its operations into Australia with a new version adapted for
local businesses. Interest so far has been strong with five companies
already committing to eCoachManager in less than one month.

When eCoachManager was first launched into Australia in October, the
system was hosted within the Amazon AWS (Amazon Web Services) cloud
hosting service in Singapore. At that time Amazon were yet to launch
their full cloud services in Australia, with just a single edge location
offering limited services. Amazon were chosen due to their proven,
reliable and flexible infrastructure and Singapore was picked as the
location for its proximity and direct high speed fibre links.

On the 12th November, Amazon announced the launch of a new region in
Sydney, their 9th worldwide and the 3rd in the Asia-Pacific region
alongside Singapore and Tokyo. This new region brings faster response
times and lower latency to AWS customers throughout Australia. The wide
range of web services available includes hosting, storage, databases,
DNS, CDN and auto scaling, all on tried and tested infrastructures and at
highly competitive prices. Certainly, a positive note for Australian
businesses and consumers alike.

As soon as news of the additional region was officially announced, the
engineers at PPCnSEO jumped straight to work in determining how best to
make the move from Singapore to Sydney. Initial thoughts of a 7 day
transition were quickly dispelled and within 24 hours eCoachManager was
fully transitioned to the new Sydney data centers.

Mark Walker, CTO of PPCnSEO explains "All of our systems were built and
tested in Singapore yet we managed to migrate them to Sydney quickly,
efficiently and most importantly reliably without any issues. Without a
flexible, reliable and consistent platform across multiple regions, this
would not have been feasible. This is a true testament to the quality of
services at AWS and gives us great confidence that our decision on
hosting providers was the right one."

eCoachManager has always prided itself in breaking new ground in the
transport industry, bringing an affordable web based system to both small
and large companies, as well as a unique job sharing system. Launching
into the Amazon Sydney cloud within 24 hours of its release makes PPCnSEO
one of the very first adopters of the new service. In September PPCnSEO
were recognised for their work on eCoachManager, winning the prestigious
Red Herring Asia top 100 award. These latest developments continue to
show the innovation that places them amongst
the biggest players in their field.
