The private Ivy League research university located in a large East Coast city is the fifth oldest institution of higher education in the United States. Since it adopted a cloud-first strategy, its IT team was tasked with migrating as many workloads as possible to AWS.
However, the nurture of their on-premises applications and workloads were making migration difficult. The storage team found itself caught between pressure to comply with the cloud-first strategy on the one hand and the increased resistance to purchase new on-premises hardware.
