With an IT staff of four, the Library District completed a successful migration in six months with help from their AWS account team.
The AWS Cloud Economics Centre published a new analysis that identified 14.4 billion euros in potential information technology (IT) savings across the European Union and United Kingdom healthcare sectors over the next five years—the equivalent of 5,665 euros per hospital bed—through the digital transformation of IT systems by migrating to the cloud.
Since 1971, Canada Centre for Mapping and Earth Observation (CCMEO) at Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) has accumulated an Earth observation (EO) data archive in excess of two petabytes (PB).

Moodle is an open-source learning management system (LMS). Moodle has more than 300 million users worldwide across both academic and enterprise organizations, and is the world’s most widely used learning platform. There are many ways to get started with Moodle on AWS. In this blog post, I focus on how to scale and optimize Moodle once you are already serving students. In this case, you may need to deal with migrating data from an existing platform and making sure the new environment caters to thousands of students, and still be cost-effective — we cover additional considerations in this walkthrough.
Use Migration Evaluator in protected or regulated environments by anonymizing sensitive network data
The AWS Migration Evaluator can help organizations with VMware fleets by collecting detailed data on VM (virtual machine) usage and using that to prepare a business case for moving to the cloud and estimate the cost of migration. However, sensitive network data collected by the Migration Evaluator, such as system names and IP addresses, cannot leave highly secured and regulated organisations. In this blog post, learn how a simple python script can anonymize AWS Migration Evaluator usage data, allowing it to be uploaded even in highly regulated environments.
