The Challenges

The first challenge was due to the low internet bandwidth, performance, availability issues, BP was not in a position to deliver the satisfactory service to their students.

The second challenge they were facing is to manage the Database. The BP internal team was not having the Database administrator to manage their complex On-Premise DB.

Again, as they started new courses in this year, they need more storage and additional Bandwidth to cater service to their students. The procuring process was too long and they need to move fast. They have challenges with their backup system which need to be considered during the redesign.

Why Amazon Web Services
