Bookrags, an online provider of educational resources, worked with AWS Premier Consulting Partner, 2nd Watch, to move their operations to the AWS Cloud. Bookrags is using AWS Cloud services to achieve total cost of ownership (TCO) savings, increase their uptime, and make their services more scalable. 2nd Watch used the AWS TCO calculator for Web Apps to estimate cost savings. Bookrags found the estimates accurate, and have reduced costs by over 50% since migrating to the AWS Cloud compared to their on-premises infrastructure. Working with 2nd Watch helped Bookrags to develop and implement a migration strategy which incurred no downtime, decreased costs, and improved uptime and flexibility in their IT operations.
