ClearPeople Delivers Sitecore CMS on Azure for Toshiba

25 Nov 2013

ClearPeople delivers Sitecore CMS on Azure for Toshiba.

Sitecore Azure

ClearPeople has worked with TOSHIBA Business Communications Division (BCD) for several years, and as a trusted supplier recommended Sitecore CMS as an enterprise grade web content management system for management of their customer and partner facing web portal.
Toshiba BCD required a secure hosting facility which would stand up to regular penetration testing and adhere to several enterprise grade hosting facility requirements. 

It needed to improve hosting infrastructure at zero budget increase, with zero/minimal downtime during transition. The infrastructure and web CMS technology both needed to be future proof with scalable implementation.

Sitecore CMS version 7 is a fully Azure compliant Web CMS allowing marketers to truly pursue a customer engagement strategy. Having won both the “2013 CMS Critic’s Choice Award for Best Enterprise CMS” and the “2013 CMS Critic People’s Choice Award for Best Enterprise CMS”, it is no doubt a market leading platform. Combined with Windows Azure, it is hard to imagine a better combination for Web CMS delivery. The solution included the implementation of a scalable Web CMS hosting topology deployed to Azure IaaS for scale-out using Sitecore Content Delivery Servers in PaaS (Web Instances).

Return on Investment

With a limited operational budget allocated for Toshiba BCS’s marketing team, they have now achieved a more scalable and more compliant hosting infrastructure at zero budget increase compared to their traditional hosting approach.
Toshiba BCD now has peace of mind that should scaling be required then this can be achieved with the current Sitecore CMS technology combined with the Windows Azure infrastructure. Further, the team can now confidently rely on the robustness, certifications and resilience of Windows Azure, for compliance assurance.
