With workload migration and cloud adoption crucial in a rapidly changing and disrupted education landscape, the CirrusHQ AWS Migration Foundations and Mobilisation provides the foundational building blocks required for success.

Holding AWS accreditation and with a proven track record of successful migration projects for education customers, CirrusHQ simplifies and de-risks modernisation. Completely aligned to your existing challenges and target outcomes, we produce a robust set of deliverables to fully prepare your organisation and its workloads for migration to AWS.

Combining engagement with key stakeholders with detailed planning while ensuring that best practices are introduced from the outset, CirrusHQ’s Migration Foundation and Mobilisation enables your organisation to build and prepare for a successful AWS cloud migration and ongoing adoption.

Migrate and modernise more effectively

CirrusHQ ensures organisations can achieve their transformation goals faster, focusing on the needs of the organisation, its challenges and existing estate. The service enhances the migration process while preparing educational institutions for ongoing success in the cloud. Designed to improve the speed and efficiency of migration while reducing risk, it provides a detailed plan, controlled costs and support for often stretched internal resources. As a result, organisations in education can focus on a clear path to migration and better understand and cater to the ongoing impacts of such a change.

Forming part of CirrusHQ’s portfolio of migration services, Migration Foundations and Mobilisation follows our AWS Migration Assessment product, where workloads to be migrated are chosen as part of a detailed cloud business case. Such assessment is essential to develop a clear picture of the desired migration outcomes and helps to support the stages that follow.

To enable your organisation to build and prepare for cloud migration and adoption, CirrusHQ carries out the following tasks:

  • Planning the migration strategy for each workload and assisting in developing documentation for all governance boards and sign-off
  • Providing you with the subject matter expertise, fully aligned to AWS high-bar standards in education and migration
  • Navigating the service offerings and building out plans that meet the requirements of your organisation and its end-users
  • Reducing complexity with governance controls for IT teams, locations, security, and other key requirements

A proud history in education migration

Having worked with many organisations in the education sector and holding AWS accreditation, CirrusHQ is well placed to support educational institutions in achieving their cloud goals. This is further evidenced by the testimony of our customers, including Mohammed Shiffa of Nottingham College, who said of our work: “Our engagement with CirrusHQ has been a breath of fresh air. It is the benchmark of how companies should deal with clients. The pool of talent CirrusHQ has to offer makes the whole experience a very easy one. CirrusHQ knows the product extremely well and are genuinely in it to help the customer.”

The typical deliverables within AWS Migration Foundations and Mobilisation for Education include:

  • A migration plan defining the proposed approach, including re-hosting, re-architecting and others
  • The deployment of a ‘Landing Zone’ within which to build out the baseline governance for the new AWS account’s access, security, and networking
  • A detailed communication plan
  • A deployment plan to ensure code-lead deployment methodologies
  • Key migration plans for testing, cut-over and rollback
  • An outline of security, disaster recovery and business continuity requirements
  • A comprehensive training plan
  • The migration of a pilot application
  • An AWS well-architected review to ensure best practices are utilised

This comprehensive set of deliverables will provide the building blocks for successful cloud adoption and lay out a centre of excellence for your organisation to build on. Throughout, CirrusHQ will work closely with your teams and AWS to ensure the product is both timely and cost-effective. Depending on your existing estate and proposed cloud usage, you may also be eligible for AWS funding to significantly reduce the investment required for this engagement or even make it cost-neutral for your organisation.

Once AWS Migration Foundations and Mobilisation is completed, your organisation will be fully prepared for the next and most significant stage in its modernisation journey, migrating workloads to AWS, with which CirrusHQ will be ready to support as required. The next stage in our migration portfolios is:

  • AWS Migrate and Modernise for Education
