Volkswagen to network factories in the cloud with Amazon

The logo of Amazon Web Services (AWS) is seen during the 4th annual America Digital Latin American Congress of Business and Technology in Santiago, Chile, September 5, 2018.

German auto giant Volkswagen announced Wednesday a long-term partnership with United States technology firm Amazon to develop an online platform connecting its factories and increase productivity.

The Volkswagen Industrial Cloud will bring together real-time data from all of the Volkswagen Group's 122 manufacturing plants to manage the overall effectiveness of assembly equipment, as well as track parts and vehicles.

Other announcements yesterday at the AWS Summit included: AWS Deep Learning Containers, which are Docker images preinstalled with deep learning frameworks; a new set of open source tools to test applications locally before deploying them to Amazon Elastic Container Service; and the general availability of Amazon S3 Glacier Deep Archive.

But in the Court of Appeal ruling, Justice Phillip Priest and Justice David Beach said the trial judge was patient and tolerant. This is when Hingst chose to appeal against the judgement and took his case of "flatulence" to the Court of Appeal.

AWS's IoT services will deliver new insights into manufacturing operations across facilities that will optimize production and improve process efficiencies, according to Amazon.

The planned "Industrial Cloud" will gather all data from VW's manufacturing plants in real time and the functions provided by AWS will be created to help boost effectiveness and track vehicle parts across the supply chain. This capability provides greater visibility for organizations managing microservices and applications in hybrid cloud environments.

"We will continue to strengthen production as a key competitive factor for the Volkswagen Group", said Oliver Blume, Volkswagen Management Board member responsible for production, adding that "our strategic collaboration with Amazon Web Services will lay the foundation".

AWS CEO Andy Jassy promised in a press release: "Volkswagen's and AWS's collaboration will have a profound impact on efficiency and quality in production through Volkswagen's global supply chain".
