About a year ago we started testing with Amazon EC2 servers, and we found them reliable and easily scalable.

Function Point Productivity Software Inc. (functionpoint.com), a worldwide leader in CRM, time tracking, invoicing, task, project and workflow management software for marketing companies, advertising agencies, design firms, and interactive web development companies, is pleased to announce a strategic move towards using Amazon Web Services as it's preferred hosting partner.

"About a year ago we started testing with Amazon EC2 servers, and we found them reliable and easily scalable. So far we've deployed servers in 4 locations namely: Europe (Ireland), Eastern U.S, Western U.S and Singapore, and we are about to deploy a new server in Sao Paulo, Brazil" stated Function Point VP of Technology, Alon Sabi. "The amazon infrastructure also allows us to scale our infrastructure based on client needs. We can spawn a new server in a matter of minutes and start deploying clients on it almost as soon as it boots thanks to Amazon AMI's (Amazon Images) that we've built in every region."

Along with some strategic speed related upgrades over the past two weeks, Function Point is poised to make clients around the world even happier than they already are. As a software as a service (SaaS) provider, it has become apparent that the need for closer edge points and a more scalable system is a key to global success in the growth of creative management software.
