Amazon Web Services (AWS) Worldwide Public Sector (WWPS) recently held its second ever Partners GameDay for its Public Sector Partners and it’s first virtually. During this interactive learning exercise, participants were challenged to put their AWS skills to the test. Participants were divided into small teams where they were then given the exercise to work together using AWS skills, services, and best practices to perform a successful on-premise to cloud migration.
T-Rex and UNCOMN’s joint team came in first place at this year’s AWS GameDay. T-Rexers exemplified the core values of teamwork and innovation while showing off their technical expertise. T-Rex’s team featured Philip M. Gollucci, Ed Shields, and T-Rex partner UNCOMN’s Tom Minella, Dennis McKeon, and Jeff Carter.
This year’s competition included 55 people and 10 AWS moderators. Competitors came from companies of all sizes to migrate a LAMP stack to AWS using Cloud Endure and Data Migration Service (DMS) with Continuous Data Change (CDC) using load balancers and containers. Once migrated, each team had to refine their migration by following the 5 Pillars of the AWS Well Architected Framework (WAF): Cost, Optimization, Resiliency, Performance and Security or CORPS. The application had to undergo a Virtual Machine (VM) / Amazon Machine Image (AMI) set-up to a containerized one using Docker (containers) and Amazon Fargate (managed Kubernetes).
We are proud of the skills our team brought to this virtual event in support of building and securing the future of our nation’s infrastructure.
