Yong Ha Park
Marketing Manager of Oryany
Please introduce your company.
Oryany, a fashion brand born in 2010 in New York City’s Manhattan neighborhood, manufactures and sells fashion items such as handbags and shoes made with high-quality natural leather.
`Oryany` is a brand best known for two unique design concepts that embrace all generations: NEW YORK URBAN STREET and MOROCCO ETHNIC. Oryany provides high-quality products at reasonable prices ranging from 100,000 KRW to 400,000 KRW. Since its launch in Korea in September 2014, Oryany has expanded beyond the online channel and now has 27 offline stores, including major domestic department stores and duty-free shops.
How and when did you start using the NAVER CLOUD PLATFORM?
I found using a rental server inconvenient. The NAVER CLOUD PLATFORM is much easier to use and also makes it easier for us to provide the global region service.
We transferred our data from the rented server to the NAVER CLOUD PLATFORM and have been using it to host our online store since January 2018. When we rented a server, we often experienced malfunctions and other problems. We decided to change over to the cloud because we were planning to advance beyond Korea into the rest of Asia. We were looking for a cloud service that was easy to use, one that would enable us to expand globally and link different API features. Fortunately, the NAVER CLOUD PLATFORM offered everything we needed. We had also considered using a foreign cloud platform, but the manual was in English and seemed very complicated. So we decided on the NAVER CLOUD PLATFORM, and we're very satisfied with the service.
How are you using NAVER CLOUD PLATFORM in your actual work?
All the major infrastructure for our online store is in place on the NAVER CLOUD PLATFORM. In the future we're also planning to use Papago, a machine translation service designed for global businesses.

In the future we're also planning to use Papago, a machine translation service designed for global businesses, so that we can broaden our business base beyond Korea to include Taiwan and other parts of Asia. We’re also going to make use of cloud-based data analysis to understand our customers better and make our marketing more effective. Since the NAVER CLOUD PLATFORM provides various user-friendly service APIs, I think it can be very helpful for the purpose of marketing our brand.
What were some of the improvements after using the NAVER CLOUD PLATFORM?
Slowdowns, unreliable service, and server malfunctions are all in the past.
When we were renting a server and running an online store with about 20,000 registered customers, the server was very slow. It would often get overloaded and freeze, even if there wasn’t that much traffic, every time we sent text messages to our customers or used the Naver shopping box. But since we moved to the NAVER CLOUD PLATFORM, we never have those problems anymore. The speed is much faster, and performance has improved a lot too. I also think being able to change specifications easily according to usage and charging expenses as much as period used are attractive things . Although other cloud companies may offer similar benefits, I think the big advantage of the NAVER CLOUD PLATFORM is its accessibility. Anyone can use its services, not just those who are technically inclined.
Lastly, please give us an opinion that would be helpful to people who are still deciding on whether to use the NAVER CLOUD PLATFORM.
We think the Naver Cloud Platform can offer you with more than a cloud service through Naver's technology and various types of content.
There are many hosting companies around, and options for cloud service also have become much more diverse. We took many things into consideration when we made our decision. We believe that the NAVER CLOUD PLATFORM's neat console dashboard and Naver's powerful content can make the difference. Although it hasn't been long since we began using the service, we have no doubts so far. I hope the company will continue to offer the same level of service and the same reasonable prices.
