Viva Leisure chooses OnApp cloud to support expanding health club network

Flexible private cloud platform supports muscular growth plan at Australia’s fastest-growing health club operator

 

London, May 7th 2019: OnApp has announced that Viva Leisure, Australia’s fastest-growing health club operator, has chosen the OnApp Cloud Management Platform to create a private cloud that ensures maximum uptime for the server infrastructure that supports Viva’s growing network of health clubs, gyms and spas across the Australian Capital Territory and New South Wales, which operate 24 hours per day, 7 days a week.

Viva Leisure operates 29 clubs and welcomes an average of 9,000 customers to its facilities each day – a number set to grow as the company is scheduled to open another 16 locations this year. Viva Leisure chose OnApp to replace an existing VMware cloud, in order to provide increased data protection offered by a private cloud solution as well as maximum performance and uptime of its server infrastructure, thanks to OnApp’s unique distributed server model. OnApp’s efficient, highly automated cloud platform also helps Viva reduce IT costs, which enables Viva Leisure to accelerate future IT projects.

“The decision to migrate from one solution to another is not insignificant for a business that needs to operate 24/7, and cannot afford any downtime. Working with the OnApp team was great, and the additional features available to us now via OnApp – together with cost savings – show us that we made the right decision.” said Harry Konstantinou, Viva’s CEO.

OnApp provides software and services that enable companies to create their own clouds, using their own datacenters or OnApp’s network of on-demand cloud infrastructure. The OnApp team is hosting “lunch & learn” sessions in early May to introduce Australian service providers to its range of cloud and CDN solutions.
