Motors.co.uk recently announced it has migrated its website and services to the Cloud, and by doing so the company hopes to improve their speed and data security.
The auto portal has declared that since the site's move to Microsoft Azure – which manages data and online platforms from a global network of data centres – the Motors.co.uk website has had a 25 per cent increase in speed, in contrast to when it was hosted locally.
The migration will also enhance the speed and security of Motors.co.uk car dealer solutions, such as its stock registration application AutoEdit, and bespoke dealer websites built by the AutoExposure team.
David Hearns, product director at Motors.co.uk, said: “By moving our services to Azure, we are joining many modern businesses in providing our customers with agile solutions that can be accessed wherever they may be. “The migration to the Cloud further secures both our business and customer data in an age where safeguarding against cyber crime cannot be taken for granted.
“We have also already seen an improvement in the website experience for UK car buyers thanks to the increased page load speed, which builds on the work we did last year when we relaunched the website in order to provide a faster, more user-friendly car search platform for in-market car buyers,” Hearns concluded.
