Australian Manufacturer leverages AWS for application environment

Business Situation

A leading Australian Manufacturer wanted to strengthen its cloud adoption strategy by migrating more than 60 applications into the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud. This was to enable the business to leverage new cloud services as well as support their organisation as they continue to expand overseas.

Microsoft on AWS Solution

As a traditional enterprise organisation, the customer has most of their workloads running on Microsoft applications such as Microsoft Windows Server 2008/12 and Microsoft SQL server 2012.

Kloud partnered with the customer to review their existing Microsoft environment, design a new AWS platform and migrate a number of key SQL database workloads into the Amazon Web Services platform.

The solution included:

  • Solution architecture
  • Design implementation
  • Project management
  • Migration
  • 24×7 support and maintenance for the environment



The key benefit for the customer has been to not own the hardware or software that comprise the technology, but to leverage industry trends and derive the maximum business value from it.

By leveraging reversed instances for key 24×7 workloads and a consumption based model for their more fluid environments, the customer has been able to investigate new trends such as Machine Learning and Internet of Things.
