PROJECT DESCRIPTION

As part of their cloud-first strategy, one of the world’s largest private education organizations turned to Asperitas Consulting to implement a secure, fully automated, monitored, managed, multi-account, multi-region, hybrid AWS environment and migrate all of the applications possible to AWS. A rearchitected WAN was also required in order to optimize the hybrid cloud architecture and support the migration of applications.

SCOPE OF WORK

Asperitas Consulting created a multi-account, secured, compliant, automated and production ready AWS environment. The WAN was re-architected to allow secure private and public cloud connections that would also facilitate the migration of over 1,000 VMs.

Over 200 applications were reviewed for their cloud readiness and a plan was created for the migration of all applications. All applications needed to be migrated to AWS in order to validate their functionality and performance.

RESULT

The AWS environment was delivered in three months and consisted of a secure, fully automated, monitored, managed, multi-account, multi-region, hybrid environment. The re-architected WAN reduced costs and increased performance by removing load for all cloud traffic from the organization’s internet connection which providing all the bandwidth required for migration over 200 applications residing on over 1,000 VMs.

A migration factory was created and an initial set of over 500 VMs was migrated in less than four months. The organization’s staff was trained on how to utilize the migration factory for the remaining VMs.
