TRD moves fully to Amazon Web Services

Amazon Web Services (AWS) has announced that Toyota Racing Development (TRD), has gone 'all-in' on AWS. For 11 years, AWS has been a leader in providing comprehensive cloud platform services. AWS offers over 90 fully featured services for computing, storage, networking, database, analytics, application services, deployment, management, developer, mobile, Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), security, hybrid and enterprise applications.

TRD uses AWS’s industry-leading cloud services to create mission-critical applications that enable its crews to improve precision, consistency, and speed during practice runs and in competition. 

"The opportunity for technology to impact how races are won cannot be overstated, and the reliability, flexibility, and speed that AWS provides to our engineers across the globe unequivocally helps us win races," said Chris Andronaco, technology director at Toyota Racing Development. "Our cars recently finished first through fourth at Watkins Glen International, and this would not have happened without our engineers—both on and off the track—leveraging the strategy and engineering systems we built on AWS. We use AWS to do everything from setting up our cars in chassis tuning simulations to making fuel and tire strategy calls from the pit boxes during the races. Choosing AWS, the world’s most versatile and feature-rich cloud service, as our exclusive cloud provider has allowed us to innovate in ways that weren’t possible with our previous public cloud provider."

"Organizations of all sizes and from every industry name speed and agility among the primary reasons for adopting AWS. Few exemplify the benefits of this game-changing speed in such a unique way as TRD, which operates in a world where winning margins are measured in milliseconds,” added Mike Clayville, vice president, Worldwide Commercial Sales at AWS. “Over our three-year relationship with TRD, we’ve empowered them to accelerate their pace of innovation and gain speed like never before. Our machine learning and analytics services have enabled TRD to build a race intelligence system that simulates thousands of races without setting foot on the track and provides their teams—from the headquarters to the frontlines—with the ability to turn insights into competitive advantages on the raceway.”
