On being awarded this significant competency from AWS, James Lucas, CEO and Founder of CirrusHQ said “We are delighted to announce we have obtained the Migration Competency. We recognise that there is still huge potential for the UK market to utilise the Public Cloud and AWS, and that driving best-practices to successfully transition and adopt AWS for our customers is critical when they undertake this significant journey. Our team provides not only the technical solution, but also the skills and support needed to ensure success.”


New sector-specific AWS migration products

CirrusHQ are also pleased to announce the creation of a collection of migration products, designed to help each industry sector advance their AWS migration journey. The product set will be backed by AWS funding that ensures complete end-to-end migration support. Offering their full AWS expertise, the team looks forward to tailoring support to specific sectors, and enabling more organisations to maximise the full benefits of AWS.


John Walker, Head of Architecture and AWS APN Ambassador, remarked “Our new set of Migration products helps us to understand our customers’ current landscape, operational models, and current skills gaps. We then use these findings to help us construct a journey to AWS that’s aligned with their unique challenges, and utilise the AWS core 7 migration methods to build out a plan. We’ll then introduce a Cloud Centre of Excellence and pilot a migration to ensure they see success as soon as possible. Once we’ve fully migrated we’ll help with their ongoing journey to AWS, as ‘day 1’ on AWS never stops to ensure their workloads are modernised and fully supported”
