Case Study: Creative Photo Cloud: A complete photo lab in the cloud

‎08-06-2014 10:44 AM - edited ‎10-11-2015 01:37 PM

Creative Photo Cloud delivers a complete cloud-based photo printing shop in the cloud for start-ups, photographers, and photo labs needing the latest in state of the art printing and graphics.



Digital imaging and printing services running online are typically limited in market reach, scale, and costs by the use of local equipment to meet customer demands. Creative Photo Cloud was looking for an alternative solution to globally expand their services while reducing costs and enabling the entry into the back-end photo lab business for startups.



Creative Photo Cloud chose the HP Helion Public Cloud service offering a 99.9 percent SLA, global footprint, highly reliable, and secure environment. It enables Creative Photo Cloud to go beyond what could be achieved using in-house infrastructure. Development and testing of their software is much faster and the system components of the cloud meet their requirements for today-- while offering unlimited scalability as they grow their business.



“We put the bulk of technology and processes into the cloud so our solution gives great experience to both the photo lab and the customer. To be able to do this we needed a cloud platform with global reach, world class reliability and security. That’s why we deiced to build our solution on HP Helion Public Cloud.” - Zoltan Ferencz, Director, Creative Photo Cloud
