A case study on Cloud needs analysis and the set-up of a Hybrid Cloud

Introduction/The Client

VAIX.ai is an AI start-up creating deeply integrated and powerful AI solutions for B2C businesses, with the vision of transforming e-commerce through personalization.

VAIX offers highly customized recommender and classification products that help consumer brands to personalize every communication and offering to a customer.

K&C was tasked with auditing VAIX’s cloud infrastructure requirements and proposing, then setting up, a solution that met their specialised needs. That solution was a hybrid cloud infrastructure.

VAIX's cloud infrastructure requirements

The Challenge

Our mission was to build a solution able to scale with the needs of VAIX. It had to be cost-efficient without compromising security and fault-tolerance. 24/7 ‘up time’ was mandatory which meant it had to be maintained during any technical changes in the system, the data collecting process or a program crash.

Our Solution

We managed to build a high-availability infrastructure using operating principles rigorously tested and implemented over two years by our R&D team. By applying these principles to VAIX’s need we were able to significantly reduce our client’s time-to-market and enhance product reliability while keeping costs low.
