BP’s Cloud-First Approach on AWS
BP is a global energy business delivering heat, light, and mobility products and services to people across the globe. The company operates in 78 countries and has around 73,000 employees worldwide. At re:Invent 2019, Stewart Fry, VP of Enterprise Information Technology and Services for BP, announced BP’s intention to go “all-in” on migrating more than 900 business-critical applications from its European Mega Data Centers to Amazon Web Services (AWS). This is in addition to the 32 production environments BP has already migrated to AWS, including its 16 TB strategic global fuels instance. In the video below, Fry discusses BP’s “cloud-first” strategy and how the company maximizes the potential of the AWS Cloud. “One of those things that AWS has been really good at working with us on is helping us develop training programs, helping come in with their Professional Services teams to support our engineers in developing their skills,” says Fry.
