VW confirms new 'industrial cloud' project with Amazon

German automaker Volkswagen announced on Wednesday that it is partnering up with Amazon Web Services in order to equip its factories with the new cloud system branded "Volkswagen Industrial Cloud," confirming earlier reports.

"The Volkswagen Industrial Cloud brings together data from all machines, plants and systems in all factories. This enables us to analyze our processes even better - and thus become more productive," said VW's Production Manager Ger Walker. He added: "Our long-term goal is to integrate the global supply chain for more than 30,000 locations and 1,500 partner companies into the Volkswagen Industrial Cloud."

According to the carmaker, the cloud will allow the company to achieve better results by becoming "faster, more transparent and safer."
