Pexip Infinity Platform Now Deployable on Amazon Web Services

Pexip, a developer of scalable, distributed collaboration software, has made the latest version of its Infinity platform available for direct deployment on the Amazon Web Services (News - Alert) (AWS) cloud platform. Pexip’s Infinity platform enables organizations to improve work efficiency by way of easy access to visual communication and collaboration tools. It seamlessly combines popular enterprise communication solutions such as Skype (News - Alert) for Business, along with legacy telephone and video conferencing, and web-based communications to achieve this.

This past May, the Infinity platform was updated to version 9, bringing more than 30 enhancements to its user experience, platform functionality and administration capabilities. This included expanded group chat tools and outbound media for streaming and recording capabilities, as well as significant interface updates. As of July, the Infinity platform has been on version 10, which brought another wave of usability and administration features.

“Making Pexip Infinity available for the Amazon cloud was a natural step for us, as it provides the end user with even more, and even simpler deployment, use, and consumption options,” said Åsmund O. Fodstad, Pexip CEO. “It is in line with our vision of making visual communications and collaboration available for everyone in any size organization.”

Pexip Infinity users that deploy from AWS will benefit from all the features Amazon makes available to its customers. In addition, hosting the Infinity platform on the Amazon cloud provides a simple, cost-effective alternative for enterprises that don’t want to deploy onsite. Since AWS is already widely in use by corporations around the world, this is a natural progression for Pexip.

With Pexip Infinity deployed via AWS, administrators can quickly and easily spin up extra instances and add capacity, providing a level of simplicity, flexibility and scalability suitable for businesses of any size. The Infinity platform is made available on AWS as Amazon Application Machine Images (AMIs), which can be uses to benefit from any of Amazon’s deployment options—public, private or hybrid.
