Air transport IT supplier Sita has unveiled plans for a dedicated community cloud for the airline industry, which it says is designed to meet the specific operational demands and procedures of the aviation sector.

The ATI Cloud, as it is provisionally called, will go live in June and will use Sita's existing global network. The on-demand framework will offer airline employees online access to infrastructure, desktop, platform and software-as-a-service.

Capacity in six regional virtual datacentres will be combined with virtual resources at large airports, with the aim of ensuring all airline users can access cloud resources in no more than 100 milliseconds.
