Back in 2011, Entegral was the 1st real estate service provider in Africa to move its products & services over to the cloud. After carefully researching (a very limited selection of) cloud technologies, Amazon Web Services (AWS) identified itself as the leader in cloud infrastructure. Today AWS is still commanding a leading role as can be seen in the graph on the right. Some of the world’s most innovative and respected companies use trust AWS with their hosting, click here to read the case studies.
Our property portal, MyProperty, was the first product to be switched over to the cloud. Stressful as it was, at that stage cloud platforms were still in its infancy and we took a calculated risk with our business. But we hated the feeling of being boxed in by the offering of local service providers who couldn’t offer the amazing cloud features we wanted, so we pushed forward.
The move paid off, and soon we migrated all our other products to the cloud. Today, new services are developed from the ground up to use all the powerful features cloud technology offers, including auto-scaling of computing resources. This results in cost savings for our clients, better uptime and a greener IT solution.
