Inpixon, a leading indoor positioning and data analytics company, today announced it will use Amazon Web Services (AWS) to deliver a greater range of high-availability Software as a Service (SaaS) offerings. With the adoption of AWS, Inpixon’s Indoor Positioning Analytics (IPA) platform is able to offer a solution that provides both on-premises security monitoring and cloud-hosted intelligence analytics.

“After extensive research and several successful test scenarios, we are very confident that AWS is the right choice for Inpixon’s IPA,” said Shirish Tangirala, Inpixon CPO. “IPA’s analytics engine requires a robust, high-performance infrastructure to compute an immense amount of locational data captured hourly by our sensors in order to deliver positional accuracy and intelligence. Based on performance, scalability, and security, AWS is the ideal fit.”


As a result of the extremely stringent compliance criteria mandated by the Risk Management Framework (RMF) regime, including the prohibition of transferring data to an external cloud-based location, customers in the government space have previously not been able to take full advantage of the IPA platform. With the adoption of AWS, which is a federal government-approved cloud solution, Inpixon’s IPA will now be able to deliver security analytics solutions to its federal customers.

Inpixon’s global retail analytics customers will also benefit immensely by having IPA available on AWS. IPA can now deliver an indoor positioning and analytics solution with the entire application stack and all data stores hosted within the customer’s host country or region, which will assist in allowing IPA analytics customers to comply with certain privacy mandates dictated by various countries and economic blocks.

With AWS, IPA can offer a solution that is highly resilient, highly available, and infinitely scalable. It will help IPA leverage a centralized development and operations team to be able to provide an unprecedented level of service to its customers while simultaneously lowering operational costs. IPA will migrate to AWS using Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) for virtual machine instances, Aurora for a more scalable, resilient database, Cloudwatch for system monitoring and alerting, Elasticsearch Service (ES) for log file and system metric consolidation and querying, and Elastic Container Service (ECS) for better management of operating-system-level virtualization.

Joining 2018 enhancements blockchain, voice-user interface (VUI), and artificial intelligence (AI), the adoption of AWS continues the evolution of Inpixon’s IPA. See the story unfold at
