Since the beginning of Aviation, the word "cloud” has continued to be one of the most feared and respected words in Aviation. Aircraft Operations are forecasted surrounding visibility and cloud is that visibility. Today, the word "Cloud” has taken on an additional meaning in Aviation, which should no longer be feared. Cloud has been re-invented in our industry and is quickly becoming the standard for providing the backbone for Airline Operational computing systems. What does Cloud mean for you as an airline? No more large-scale data centers with lots of expensive high maintenance hardware directly connected to your Airline Operational system, and, in most cases 2 data centers running in parallel to protect you against hardware failures that could shut down your operation.
For a number of years, Smart4Aviation offers its outstanding airline operational applications in the Software as a Service model backed by Amazon Web Services and already has multiple implementations worldwide. AWS offers an unparalleled set of features, including automated provisioning and installation, auto-scaling of resources, multi-data center hosting, two levels of automated failover and recovery, proactive monitoring and alerting, and point-in-time restore as well as minimum downtime upgrades amongst others.
We are delighted to announce that Smart4Aviation has officially become a validated AWS Technology Partner as our Smart SUITE operational solutions have been successfully reviewed as a part of the AWS Foundational Technical Review (FTR) program. Our airline operational suite of products earned its Qualified Software solution status. The FTR provides specific guidelines to adopt a subset of AWS best practices to reduce risks around security, reliability, and operational excellence, as defined by the AWS Well-Architected Framework.
