Web hosting company GoDaddy has selected Amazon Web Services (AWS) for migrating majority of its infrastructure as part of a multi-year transition.
US-based GoDaddy will use AWS services including machine learning, analytics, databases, and containers to innovate faster to meet customer needs.
AWS will enable GoDaddy to accelerate the delivery of its products and services, and deploy them globally in minutes, to its customers, said Mike Clayville, vice president, Worldwide Commercial Sales at AWS.
GoDaddy will leverage AWS’s Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (Amazon EKS) to run its Kubernetes workloads on AWS without change.
GoDaddy is using Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) P3 Instances to reduce the time to train machine learning models and increase the performance of its GoDaddy Domain Appraisals tool.
In addition, GoDaddy and AWS are working together to incorporate some of GoDaddy’s domain technology and website building products — Managed WordPress and GoCentral –into the AWS experience to provide tools for finding the perfect domain name and building a powerful online presence.
Charles Beadnall, chief technology officer at GoDaddy, said: By operating on AWS, we’ll be able to innovate at the speed and scale we need to deliver powerful new tools that will help our customers run their own ventures and be successful online.”
