Migrate Targeted Workloads for Education to AWS moves a key education workload to the cloud quickly and effectively in order to address urgent challenges or meet pressing modernisation needs. Whether you want to improve the performance of an existing workload, overcome the impact of a security breach, break free of legacy hardware restrictions or simply take the first step on your cloud journey, CirrusHQ is ready to support you.

Fast, efficient migration for every education need

We have broad migration experience across a wide range of educational institutions, having helped many organisations in the sector respond to disruption or achieve key modernisation goals. This includes moving a CMS solution to AWS for Whiterose Maths to enable its learning platform to cope with unprecedented demand, as well as helping Nottingham College recover from a ransomware attack with a targeted migration of backups to AWS. We also rearchitected bespoke services and utilised AWS managed and serverless services for the University of Oxford to take its museum collections online.

While each educational institution requires a unique migration to meet its specific needs, there is a core desire among all organisations to take full advantage of AWS cloud services to ensure the best experience for both teachers and learners. To enable this, CirrusHQ adopts the best approaches of a full migration but breaks down the timescales to meet your requirements. Not only does this approach enable a faster workload migration, but it prepares your organisation for future workload migrations or a full modernisation project.

**The typical deliverables for this engagement include: **

  • A migration plan, cutover plan and agreed milestones
  • Execution of the migration against the set milestones
  • A fully automated deployment with security, networking and monitoring baked in
  • Detailed training and knowledge transfer for internal teams
  • An operate and optimise plan for ongoing modernisation

Further deliverables can be added to this engagement to ensure it meets your specific workload requirements, and you may also be able to access funding assistance from AWS. Even at this small scale, incentives can be applied to significantly reduce the cost of your migration and ongoing cloud usage, with CirrusHQ working closely with AWS to secure these reductions for you where possible based on your proposed consumption.

With Migrate Targeted Workloads for Education to AWS, your organisation can benefit from:

  • Quickly and efficiently migrating a key workload to AWS with support from an expert AWS-certified partner.
  • Access to modern infrastructure that’s secure, performant, scalable and reliable
  • DevOps methodologies to help futureproof your organisation delivered out-of-the-box through the automation and management of AWS cloud infrastructure

With the learnings and best practices established in this engagement, your organisation will be equipped to move additional workloads or carry out a complete modernisation project in a more seamless manner. When you’re ready, CirrusHQ’s portfolio of migration and managed services provide you with a range of options to continue your cloud journey and enhance the way your educational institution operates.
