Qantas.com Flies With AWS

Qantas has gone live with Amazon Web Services and plans to shift more applications into the cloud. The recently relaunched Web site, Qantas.com, is the company’s first cab off the rank to make the shift.

Qantas predicts moving into the cloud will save the company around $30 million over five years. Updates that previously took Qantas months to deploy are said to now take only 30 minutes and infrastructure costs have been reduced by 90 percent.

The airline plans to move more applications into the cloud, including big-data for data mining purposes, and its flight planning application, which was used as a proof of concept during testing phase, Jessica Lin, manager of Qantas’ applications, told an AWS Summit in Sydney.
