Realize complex output requirements in the cloud

Output Management from the cloud

SEAL Systems enhances your cloud applications with an innovative Software as a Service (SaaS) solution for document distribution. For our  software platform PLOSSYS 5 we apply our experiences in the on premise business concerning high scalable cloud applications. Besides the flexible use for your cloud applications we offer further useful enhancements for you IT basis and IT infrastructure:

The following applications of our customers are running in the cloud:

  • Business applications (ERP and CRM systems)
  • Enterprise Content Management (ECM systems)
  • Engineering applications (PLM, PDM, CAx)
  • Office applications (Office 365)
  • Custoomer specific solutions (Cloud for Costumer C4C)

Microsoft Azure & Amazon Webservices AWS

Each cloud model uses its own system environment of the used hoster. SEAL Systems supports the market leader in this system environment, for example Microsoft Azure, Amazon Webservices AWS. Due to our technology leadership Microservices, Container technology and Kubernetes are familiar expressions for us.

Fit for the cloud: the output management engine from SEAL Systems

The enable output management from the cloud, we have built up our well-proven output management engine PLOSSYS on complete new technical basis with version 5. This sysem can be installed also on common servers but can be used with software containers in cloud environments. The microservice architecture of PLOSSYS 5 enables a selective choice of the actual needed services. In this way the basis print output can be done inhouse to minimize the data transfert between cloud and location. But rarely used components can be additionally booked from the cloud and charged according to real usage. A control component takes care for the correct selection of services for each order. So unnecessary steps are avoided.

« When properly utilized, the cloud is a powerful tool that simplifies IT environments, reduces expenditures and lowers management costs. Not every IT process is suitable for a cloud operation, but with sound judgement and competent partners, companies can save substantial costs – especially for standard processes such as output manage­ment. »

Some technical details

We can already show you today how well this technology works. We’ve designed a Cloud in miniature, in which the crucial components have already been realized by PLOSSYS 5 — printing & converting with distributing, scaling, load balancing, failover and multi-architecture container technology — and all this is multi-platform and on the smallest hardware.

Our state-of-the-art mini data center is fitted with 14 ARM32, ARM64 and Intel64 servers which are supplied with the same container images and managed with exactly the same technology that we also use in the large environments of our cloud service. This way we can reproduce a myriad of operating conditions, load situations and problem situations all the way to complete malfunction scenarios under realistic conditions, and subject the PLOSSYS components to thorough scrutiny. Because even if output management comes from the Cloud in the future, there’s still one thing to be prevented at all costs, and that’s malfunctions.
