What comes to your mind when you think about South Korea? BTS, Blackpink, Gagnum Style, Ramyeon, K-beauty, K-pop, K-dramas, etc. While this is a testament to South Korea’s growing soft power or the Hallyu wave, its technological achievements are a lesson worth taking inspiration from. Once an agrarian economy, today South Korea has transitioned into a technological powerhouse, giving the world some of the most path-breaking innovations like the first software Braille translation, Open Leading Electric Vehicles (OLEVs), the world’s first 5G infection control robot Keemi and everyone’s raging favorite PUBG. Ranked second as the most technologically advanced country across the globe, its capital Seoul is the perfect embodiment of digital cultures and human relationships coexisting together. Housing behemoths like Samsung, Naver, Hyundai, and LG; the country has now set their eyes on leading the global AI revolution.
CUBOX: AI For People
Nestled in the dynamic district of Seoul called Gagnum, CUBOX, a famous biometrics company, is revolutionizing the way people think and use AI. Motivated by their motto “AI for people”, its highly advanced AI face recognition technology and biometrics have transcended every industry, including airports, construction, financial services, F&B, and much more. Leading successful projects like the Automated Border Control (ABC) systems, e-Gates at Incheon Airport, and Multifactor Verification Access (MFA) systems at Government complexes, the company wants to put its solutions on the global map. However, an impending challenge was widening the gap between their goal and ambition.
In the Pursuit of the Best AWS Consulting Partner: How Did CUBOX Arrive at Cloud4C?
Driven by a strong aim to establish an R&D center in Russia, CUBOX wanted to expand its global footprint across the APAC, MENA, European, and North American regions. However, to initiate such an ambitious undertaking, the company was stuck in a big conundrum: Choosing the right Cloud MSP for their business. What they were looking for was a cloud environment that supported AWS capabilities and equipped them with flexibility and scalability to comply with global compliance standards. They were in search of an AWS managed services partner that enjoyed a strong local presence across South Korea and helped them unlock the full potential of their IT systems. By offloading the burden of managing and maintaining their IT infrastructure and operations to an MSP, CUBOX wanted to meet their core business objectives like Big Data/Query, ad hoc based heavy consumption on GPU, etc.
After debilitating on multiple options, CUBOX finally settled on Cloud4C. Being a leading and certified AWS consulting partner with a long-term market presence across 25 regions, Cloud4C enabled agile deployment and cost optimization capabilities for CUBOX.
Without much further ado, let's delve into how the biometrics company benefitted from the long-standing partnership with Cloud4C.
