Amit Walia, senior vice president and general manager, Data Integration and Security, Informatica, said, “Informatica is extending its cloud strategy to include making its industry-leading, on-premises products available on AWS’s industry-leading infrastructure. Cloud-first and hybrid IT organizations, as well as line-of-business groups, can now move forward with Informatica PowerCenter, Big Data Edition, B2B Data Exchange and Data Quality as integral parts of their hosted great data pipelines with complete confidence that Informatica is solidly behind them.”

It gives us the flexibility to easily add additional capacity, and we can test new configurations without the commitment of hardware purchases.”

Other advantages of Informatica implementations hosted on AWS include AWS’s economical pay-for-use pricing, high reliability compute environment and the ability to leverage AWS data and storage services. These services include high-performance connectivity to Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) for cost-effective storage, Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) and Amazon Redshift, a fast, fully managed, petabyte-scale data warehouse solution that makes it simple and cost-effective to efficiently analyze all data using existing business intelligence tools.
