Migrating to the cloud

In support of a federal agency, Perspecta provides all data center operational services, including mainframe, midrange and client server hosting, as well as help desk, network and security management services. Additionally, Perspecta provides ancillary services such as wireless device management and engineering advisory services.

As part of their digital transformation journey, the federal agency partnered with Perspecta to migrate their primary public-facing website to the Microsoft Azure cloud. This is a milestone event, as it represents a groundbreaking step toward migrating their legacy applications to the cloud. This site handles almost two million users per month and six million page views. The new cloud implementation operates with an average response time of less than two-tenths of a second per view. In addition to improved site performance, the migration also positions the agency with the benefit of enhanced scalability, where Perspecta can scale infrastructure for the website on demand, expanding horizontally in the Azure environment to meet the demand while saving resources. This successful migration represents a milestone value to the agency of how applications can be properly identified for cloud application transformation as well as executing cloud migrations successfully without interruption to the end user.
