Cloud services should
Cloud services should…

Reduce the complexity of providing scalable solutions

Allow easyJet to get on with developing differentiating services

Ease the burden of test system management and configuration

Help move IT from technology focussed to service focussed


Cloud services could
Cloud services could…

Be a configuration nightmare

Return us to an immature service monitoring and management position

Introduce weak points in high availability services

Complicate development and deployment


Easyjet strategy
easyJet strategy

Use simple, standard solutions by default

Introduce cloud solutions only when they simplify things

Promote innovative use of mainstream technology

Continually test the market to measure capability

Continue to use Microsoft technology for our technical platform

Azure will be the natural choice, but we’ll try others

Provide scalable systems that never restrict the growth of the business

Look for areas where cloud will simplify the scaling of systems

Provide 100% uptime for business critical systems

Wait for cloud to mature before committing to HA usage
