Written by Anthony Strzalek
Dunkin’ Brands Group, the parent company of Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin-Robbins, has selected Amazon Web Services (AWS) as its cloud infrastructure provider.
The company has completed the migration of its mobile applications, e-commerce websites, and key corporate IT infrastructure applications from on-premises infrastructure to AWS, for increased scalability and security, and reduced costs.
While Dunkin’ Brands had previously found it increasingly difficult to predict and manage the on-premises capacity needed to provide a good digital experience for its customers during peak times, it now relies on AWS to scale up and down as needed.
Santhosh Kumar, vice president of infrastructure, data security and privacy at Dunkin’ Brands, said: “Our mobile applications and digital properties are an absolutely critical way through which we reach our customers and they must be secure, available, and high performing at all times.
“We selected AWS as our cloud infrastructure provider for these key business applications due to the depth and breadth of the AWS services, and their experience in securely managing enterprise applications. AWS also provides us with redundancy to help us meet our goals of high reliability and availability, robust security and optimal performance for our applications, and the ability to quickly add capacity on demand when needed.”
Mike Clayville, vice president ofworldwide sales at AWS, added: “Dunkin’ Brands is a great example of an enterprise company’s journey to AWS. They began their migration to AWS with their development and test workloads and websites, and after benefiting from lower costs, faster innovation rates, and improved reliability, migrated critical, customer-facing and corporate IT infrastructure applications.”
