EmpowerMX FleetCycle® in Amazon Cloud: A first-ever, true cloud-computing option for aviation MRO industry

Dallas TX (02 05 2013): EmpowerMX, an industry-recognized leader in aviation-maintenance software solutions and program-management services, announces the rollout of its FleetCycle® Cloud and Amazon Web Services (AWS) as its cloud-computing partner. This revolutionary step forward in our IT-infrastructure offerings will allow our current and future customers to liberate themselves from the burden of committing precious resources to those IT-related activities that do not contribute directly to their bottom lines.

FleetCycle® SaaS customers electing to employ this flexible, secure and cost-effective IT-infrastructure option will see dramatic increases in  application “up” times, spectacular improvements in aircraft turn times, and significant reductions in production costs. By using this option, we can literally get any size customer "into the cloud" with our reliable and high-performing products within 24 hours while saving that customer hundreds of thousands of dollars in installation costs. And, because cloud-computing is so affordable, low-cost carriers and third-party MROs can now achieve the production and efficiency gains only available via the FleetCycle® brand.

When asked to comment, EmpowerMX President and CEO Dinakara Nagalla remarked, “We are revolutionizing the cost of owning quality software in this cash-strapped industry. Cloud computing is a natural outcome of the IT industry’s ever-evolving advances and can provide our customers with a distinct advantage over the competition. By disconnecting from a reliance on the traditional enterprise-IT solution and connecting to the highly reliable AWS cloud, they will realize the immediate savings and efficiencies available only from the shared computing and storage resources provided by the global leader in off-premises, decentralized cloud computing services. But, and more importantly, those connecting to the AWS cloud will be able to focus more fully on their core competencies and on the needs of the world’s most-demanding customers… businesses that must keep their aircraft in the air to generate revenue.”

As an essential element of this new IT-infrastructure initiative, EmpowerMX is currently in the process of completing a migration of its hosted SaaS customers from our commercial data center in Edina, Minnesota to the AWS cloud.
