Amcor improves application reliability

Amcor, a global packaging company, has deployed hybrid cloud services from Orange Business Services to connect its worldwide infrastructure, both simplifying operations and benefiting from a single pay-as-you-go solution, the company said.

Orange Business Services´ hybrid cloud solution will enable Amcor to improve interactions and collaboration among employees in more than 40 countries across five continents. Amcor is using the cloud to host business applications and appliances.

The hybrid cloud infrastructure consolidates both its private cloud managed infrastructure and global public cloud services, a specific requirement for Amcor´s global operations. Both, private and public clouds are provided out of three regions across the world — Americas, Asia and Europe — and connect seamlessly through an integrated and secured virtual private network (VPN).

For the public cloud services, Amcor chose Orange Business Services´ Flexible Engine solution, based on Openstack technology. Amcor has also subscribed to Flexible Engine services, including the management of operating systems and databases and hosting IT infrastructure applications for users in Europe, Asia Pacific and the US.

In addition to this datacenter solution, Orange Business Services provides Amcor with a range of managed services, such as security, private WAN and Internet connectivity, telephony, videoconferencing and mobility on a global scale.

Amcor (ASX:AMC) applies art and science to create responsible packaging solutions that enhance the products people use in everyday life. With global leadership positions in flexibles and rigid plastics packaging, Amcor continually innovates to find new and better ways to protect essential products such as food, beverage, pharmaceutical, medical, home and personal care.
