 Colombian meat processing giant uses BT Cloud Compute to support growth and compliance.

BT today announced that Friogan, a market-leading Colombian producer and distributor of meat based products and by-products has adopted BT Cloud Compute, an enhanced service that gives organisations the ability to build powerful ‘pay as you go’ cloud solutions that they can access with consistent levels of quality and security wherever they are expanding.

BT Cloud Compute will help Friogan – which has five processing plants located in pastoral areas across Colombia minimise costs and adapt its IT infrastructure quickly and easily to rapidly changing operational needs.

Developed at BT’s research centre in Adastral Park, BT Cloud Compute enables Friogan to consolidate its IT infrastructure by combining its own data centres and private clouds with BT’s global cloud capabilities, providing Friogan the flexibility to tailor its choice of solution to suit changing IT needs. Automated delivery makes it easy for Friogan to launch new services and applications quickly and efficiently, with high levels of choice, flexibility, security and control. BT Cloud Compute’s self-service dashboard gives Friogan the power to constantly monitor and manage its usage and spending.

The deal represents a significant innovation for Friogan and underlines BT’s commitment to Colombia, a key area for its investment in Latin America. BT is currently the only global telecommunications provider offering corporate cloud services based over local infrastructure in Colombia.

Armando Daza Daza, Chairman of Friogan, said: “BT Cloud Compute is a new and very innovative way of addressing many of the issues we are facing when deploying and scaling our IT infrastructure. This deal builds on a very successful collaboration with BT and will help us continue to grow as a business.”

Jacinto Cavestany, vice-president BT Iberia and BT Latin America, BT Global Services said: “The business successes of the future will be in the hands of the agile, the flexible and the responsive. We are very proud that a leader such as Friogan recognises how BT Cloud Compute can help gain that edge and better succeed in rapidly changing market conditions. This shows how BT’s services are increasingly seen as leading the pack in Latin America and around the world. Our innovative technology and the expertise of our local and global teams are fully engaged to connect Friogan with the best possible future.”

With services hosted in more than 45 datacentres around the globe and managed by customers through a transparent self-service dashboard, BT Cloud Compute is designed to help businesses like Friogan meet their stringent compliance requirements and local law and regulatory obligations by letting them decide exactly where they want their sensitive data to be hosted. BT’s cloud infrastructure uses industry standard secure data centres located in Brazil, Colombia, US, UK, Spain, Benelux, France, Italy, Singapore and Hong Kong. This will soon be extended to Germany, China, India, Argentina and Mexico.
