The Challenge

  • Management team wanted their fleet of Windows workloads hosted on an enterprise-grade cloud platform with reliable, scalable infrastructure that balances technology needs and economic allocation of resources.
  • Reduce hardware and database management overhead on a subset of their SQL Server databases and file servers.
  • Lacked fault tolerance for Windows applications and needed a centralized, consistent way to gather operational insights and automated routine management tasks. Including automating patch approval and deployment
  • Required segregated environments for developing and testing new applications and workloads.

The Solution

  • Migrating to Microsoft Solutions on AWS with EC2 and RDS.
  • Leveraging AWS Lambda for flexibility to refactor and modernize on a serverless architecture. Additionally, provided a highly available, faulttolerant infrastructure without the need to administer, maintain, or patch the underlying servers.
  • Leveraging Amazon FSx allowed them to reduce management overhead through automated capacity planning, hardware procurement, installing and configuring server software and files systems, applying updates, and managing licensing and backups.
  • Managing EC2 instances with AWS Systems Manager for remote management of servers at scale, automation, patch management, and improved visibility into operational metrics with Amazon CloudWatch.

THE BENEFITS

  • Security
    Reduced exploitable attach vectors and implemented detective tools for alerting on misconfiguration that could expose client data.
  • Improved Governance
    AWS Systems Manager reduced administrative overhead and the time required to implement operational changes.
  • Optimization
    Running Windows on AWS EC2 optimized resource efficiency and eliminated Windows license management, while lowering cost.
