The world’s leading in-car navigation provider accelerates development cycles, increases business agility and simplifies IT with Apache CloudStack.

“CloudStack adds tremendous business value because it means we can do things faster and be more flexible. If developers have a great idea that they want to test, we can more quickly give them the environments they need, including all the required interdependencies, which can be quite complex. Previously, that might have taken months; now we can deploy entire platforms in a few days.”
