Sevatec provided cloud strategy, design, and migration to the United States Department of Health and Human Service’s (HHS) Early Childhood Learning & Knowledge Center (ECLKC) website. The HHS ECLKC faced the common challenge of a dependence on physical data centers for the support of its public facing website. HHS recognized that a migration from two separate colocation facilities to Amazon Web Services (AWS) would create efficiencies that reduce costs and provide improved capabilities for backup, elasticity, and failover support.
Sevatec successfully led the complex migration to AWS with an approach that separated the various components of the physical infrastructure (hardware, operating systems, web infrastructure, database and networking) into unique phases of the migration. We conducted individual and integration tests to validate a fully functioning, secure, and high performing solution that took advantage of AWS services, reducing the overall Operations & Maintenance costs associated. With a flawless switchover, the project received widespread agency recognition.
