Accessing the power and agility of cloud-based workloads is essential in the increasingly disrupted and rapidly evolving education sector. However, even after identifying the workloads that would benefit most from migration, there are many potential pitfalls and obstacles to overcome before the benefits of transformation can be truly realised. Beyond simply delivering migration, AWS Migrate and Modernise for Education also lays the groundwork for modernisation on AWS. With AWS accreditation and proven success migrating workloads for clients in the education sector, CirrusHQ ensures your migration and modernisation are geared to overcome your organisation’s unique challenges and meet its specific goals.

A well-managed migration process

Building on the work of other products in CirrusHQ’s migration portfolio, including AWS Migration Assessment for Education and AWS Migration Foundations and Mobilisation for Education, AWS Migrate and Modernise for Education takes your organisation a step further using the technical foundations previously established. Through a robust set of deliverables, this product de-risks migration and safely transforms your infrastructure to ensure your workloads and your business are prepared to take full advantage of the AWS cloud.

Delivery on deadline

CirrusHQ has helped a number of educational institutions successfully migrate to AWS in order to overcome challenges and achieve their goals. Examples include supporting Whiterose Maths in migrating its learning platform to the cloud after usage demands increased significantly during the pandemic and also mitigating the impact of a ransomware attack on Nottingham College by moving its backups to AWS.

With timely delivery and accurate scheduling essential within education, the focus in this package now turns to delivery, including critical milestones and key migration cut-over dates, in addition to aligning all departments and providing training.

To deliver this, the typical deliverables within AWS Migrate and Modernise for Education include:

  • Confirming migration plan timescales and deliverables
  • Executing the workload migration and cut-over against agreed milestones
  • Ensuring operating models are in place
  • Developing a transition plan, training and providing knowledge transfer
  • Creating an operate and optimise plan for modernisation

Continued success in the cloud

Successful migration to AWS will unlock huge advantages for your organisation, with agility a key factor as more disruptors impact the education sector. Ensuring your technology landscape is best placed to meet the demands of a modern market means you benefit from:

  • Fine grain control over your educational workloads and the ability to maximise operational management activities
  • Enhanced security built through automation
  • Governance tailored specifically to your organisation from day one
  • Cost reduction and greater cost control
  • Secure, performant, scalable and reliable infrastructure
  • Continued cloud benefits and accelerated modernisation

Based on learning from previous engagements and a full understanding of your organisational needs, this package is designed to set educational institutions up for AWS adoption the right way. CirrusHQ ensures you realise your strategic drivers and deliver them aligned to AWS best practices for maximum performance and cost-efficiency in the cloud.

In order to further enable your organisation for success in the cloud, CirrusHQ can assist in up-skilling and enhancing your operations post-migration through our managed services offerings.
