Cal Poly Finds Comprehensive Cloud Services Partner in AWS

Why Read This Research

California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly) was ranked the number one most innovative school in the West in 2022. However, its legacy data center was far from that a decade ago. Built in 1963, the outdated structure needed multiple upgrades. After thorough research, the team determined that the most cost-effective and efficient option was migrating Cal Poly’s data center and core systems to the cloud. The institution sought state-of-the-art technology solutions and tools and was ultimately impressed with Amazon Web Services, selecting it as its cloud platform. Read this research to understand Cal Poly’s decision, their path to cloud migration, and the creation of DxHub, an experiential learning resource for the Cal Poly community.
