MirrorWeb provides the digital history of the UK Government by archiving all government websites and social media feeds. MirrorWeb helped the UK National Archives move 120 TB of data to the cloud. Twenty years of data, 480 websites, and 1.2 million files without index made the move a challenge, but MirrorWeb migrated the data to the AWS Cloud in two weeks using AWS Snowball and AWS Lambda. The company processed the data in Amazon S3, and ran AWS Lambda functions as the data was written, indexing 144 million documents in an hour. The total cost of the data transfer was $25.
