The challenge

Van Ameyde Systems was already familiar with AWS for their other environments, but their previous hosting company did not offer the level of support, performance and flexibility they required. The challenge was to move all servers and applications to the cloud with the least amount of downtime possible for their users. As such, Van Ameyde Systems was looking for an AWS partner to make use of the AWS possibilities, help with the setup of the Landing Zone, and to get detailed insight in all the steps needed for a smooth transition to AWS.

The solution

We made use of the AWS Cloud Adoption Framework to prepare the transition to the new AWS environment. Together with application development and infrastructure services, a Landing Zone was created, using CloudFormation templates and automated provisioning through Ansible, in two different AWS regions.

The primary solution was deployed in the Ireland Region, with a backup environment in Frankfurt.
Both regions have a Direct Connect interfacing with the remaining on-premise Data Center.
An additional connection is used by the CloudEndure DR solution to replicate all servers from the primary to the backup Region.

All applications were moved to new EC2 and RDS instances, with supporting Lambda functions, and CloudWatch, Config and CloudTrail for monitoring and security. Due to some required features not being available with Elastic Load Balancers and Web Application Firewalls at the time, the primary firewalls and load balancers are based on AWS MarketPlace based EC2 instances.

During and after the migration we focused on security and compliance assessments, performed User Acceptance Tests and scheduled yearly Disaster Recovery tests.

The result

Van Ameyde was provided with a robust and scalable AWS environment, with quick disaster recovery capabilities, while lowering monthly costs and quicker responses for support and changes.
