Award-winning cloud service provider, Memset, have had their private cloud service recognized at the annual Data Centre Solutions Awards for the private cloud infrastructure they provided to Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics to roll out their gamification staff training programme across Europe.
Memset and Lush scooped runner-up for ‘Private Cloud Project of the Year’. The application is delivered by leveraging the capabilities of Memset’s private cloud platform. These capabilities include:
• Compute: common REST-based web services powering the user interfaces and the HTML5 game user interface itself, both with the ability to scale up and down, allowing several hundred employees to download, install and play simultaneously.
• Storage and Data: ability to store assets such as images and video leveraged across user interfaces with a centralised SQL database service for storing application data, as well as training results.
• Content Delivery: increasing performance by delivering international versions to locations around the globe.
Richy Baxter-Freeman, International Support for Lush cosmetics, who was responsible for the IT set up of the training programme said: “Using Memset’s cloud service has enabled us to quickly roll out the programme to other countries faster than we anticipated. We’ve been able to take snapshots of the virtual server and recreate it quickly in the other languages required.”
He continued, “We can monitor traffic and performance via Memset’s control panel and easily scale up or down as load patterns fluctuate, which means we only pay for what we need in terms of compute infrastructure. In addition, we benefit from the maintenance, support, and deployment automation provided by Memset to reduce our operational costs.”
