Openbravo today announced the release of the Openbravo Commerce Cloud, its new Cloud offering for Tier-1 and Tier-2 specialty retailers that combines the powerful Openbravo Commerce Suite with the new Openbravo Cloud hosted in AWS.
The Openbravo Commerce Cloud, combines the powerful Openbravo Commerce Suite with Openbravo Cloud, a single-tenant Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) option that enables specialty retailers to deploy Openbravo products on virtual servers in AWS. The Openbravo Commerce Cloud frees retailers from the high costs and complexities of managing hardware, which can be scaled up or down based on growth or changing business needs. By combining the Openbravo Commerce Cloud with the services provided locally by an Authorized Openbravo Partner, retailers will enjoy a fully managed state-of-the-art retail solution in the cloud.
The Openbravo Commerce Cloud (openbravo.com/commerce-cloud) can be adopted under a variety of business scenarios, ranging from being used exclusively as a next generation mobile store solution to the deployment of a complete retail management system, built on top of Openbravo's highly flexible and easily extendable commerce technology platform that enables retailers to focus on business innovation for more competitiveness. Specialty retailers will gain superior agility to rapidly adapt to their continuously changing business needs, such as the opening of new stores, international expansion, roll-out of new store concepts, or simply to more effectively manage recurring challenges like peak demand during weekends or the holiday season. The unique combination of the flexibility of the Openbravo Commerce Suite itself with the agility provided by AWS and the services delivered by Openbravo Cloud Operations, including 24/7 support and a strong disaster recovery strategy, are key enablers for retailers to achieve this superior agility. The Openbravo Commerce Cloud is priced with a transparent model, which clearly splits software costs, based on POS terminals and back-office concurrent users, and the cloud infrastructure costs, based on the provisioned AWS and support resources, to optimize total cost and so ensure a perfect fit with retailers' requirements.
"The Openbravo Commerce Cloud provides specialty retailers with the opportunity to adopt a solution that meets three critical operating standards: lower capital expense, variable cost of operations on the basis of the pay-for-what-you-use principle, and a very scalable computing platform. The combination of these three standards results in a highly competitive TCO, something that will be much valued by Retail CIOs who are forced to re-evaluate how their IT spending is allocated in order to keep up with the pace of new IT initiatives to support the rapidly evolving retail business model", said Ismael Ciordia, CTO at Openbravo.
To celebrate this important announcement, Openbravo has announced a special launch offer for all Openbravo Commerce Cloud new contracts closed before 30th June 2016.
