Leveraging the Full Benefits of the Cloud

Secure Cloud Services

The Challenge

In order to keep pace with the technology and security practices used by commercial organizations, the U.S. Air Force is faced with the challenge of shifting thousands of mission-critical applications away from on-premise hosting and migrating them to the commercial cloud.

Now our services are running at a cost of about $140,000 a month, if you compare this to our heritage environment, where the software alone costs us $1.3 million, and don’t include the labor to support that system. That is a huge savings.

The Results

We are the lead integrators and migration architects for the Cloud One program guiding mission owners through all aspects of their transition to the cloud, from pre-to-post migration.

Pre Migration: We assist USAF in culling a pipeline of cloud-ready applications. We review migration approaches and provide PaaS recommendations for cloud transition that work within the key guardrails we prescribe for the Cloud One environment.

Migration: We manage tasks and ensure migrators are following Cloud One and USAF guidelines, program best practices and industry standards.

Post Migration: We provide support and education on cloud-provided tools and technical support for mission owners both short and long term.

Our well-honed application migration processes have increased the speed of innovation and yielded momentous cost-savings; funding that can be redirected to support mission readiness.

Now our services are running at a cost of about $140,000 a month, if you compare this to our heritage environment, where the software alone costs us $1.3 million, and don’t include the labor to support that system. That is a huge savings.
