Real customers, real results
When it comes to end-to-end print management in the cloud, LRS customers have enjoyed the benefits for years. These organizations have chosen to host their VPSX Enterprise software on the Amazon Web Services® cloud platform. Organizations like these own the architecture behind their AWS cloud-deployed print and output management. Upon switching to the cloud, they not only enjoy a centralized point of control over all global printing, they also reduce their operating expenses and optimize their IT infrastructure by standardizing on software solutions and removing hardware such as redundant print servers.
Here are two examples of such customers:
The first organization is a long-time LRS customer that sells and distributes food worldwide. They were already familiar with the value our solutions bring to large enterprises, and were looking to deploy a pull printing solution for cost savings, data security and corporate sustainability. The company chose LRS’ MFPsecure®/Print product as the embedded pull printing solution for their mixed HP and Xerox-based printer fleet. Their one special requirement was that the solution should run in the cloud. Today, this customer uses VPSX Enterprise and PageCenterX software for a re-hosted Mainframe Environment (RME) with Micro Focus (VPSX/MFI) and MFPsecure®/Print running on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud.
Another retailer moved its mainframe print and archive environment to the cloud. They deployed LRS solutions for printing, archiving, data stream transforms and auditing. They now enjoy a single interface for viewing and managing enterprise output. They also have a single place to manage Windows drivers and initiate automatic driver updates – valuable functions in terms of time spent on IT operations. The range of functionality, versatility, and room for future growth in the LRS product set appealed to this customer, as did LRS’ proven track record in moving customers to the cloud.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) ranks sixth in the top 10 leading cloud computing services and is still expanding its reach. AWS cloud hosted services include computing, storage, networking, database, analytics, application services, deployment, management, mobile and developer tools. Services also include tools for the Internet of Things. Organizations of all sizes can choose AWS as a way to obtain large scale computing capacity, without the need for large investments in the IT infrastructure.
