Leading Victorian state department moves their public platform into AWS

Business Situation

A leading state government department was seeking to migrate their production web platform into a Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) compliant environment, capable of scaling as the department makes more services available online.

Microsoft on AWS Solution

Kloud worked with the customer to design, deploy and migrate their existing Sitecore content management system (CMS) platform from their Microsoft Windows 2008 environment onto an auto-scalable Windows Server 2012/SQL Server 2014 solution, deployed on Amazon Web Services (AWS).

The solution included:

  • Configuration
  • Support
  • Migration
  • Third-Party Tools
  • 24×7 ongoing support and maintenance of the environment


Since migrating to the AWS platform, the customer has been able to run up to 400% more development streams, increase the speed of their iteration cycles and witness a decrease in the production operating costs by 20%.

Consumption-based Microsoft licensing enables the development teams to deploy Windows & SQL environments without being concerned about licensing constraints.
