Cornell University Connects Its Cloud

Cornell is one of the premier private universities in the U.S. In recent years, the university has been embracing the benefits of shifting from on-premises data centers into the cloud.

As cloud infrastructure increased around campus, it became harder for the university to keep track of it all. Before long, Cornell had 65 individual Amazon Web Services (AWS) accounts active. The university needed a way to consolidate those services and maximize its usage of the AWS Cloud.

Cornell selected CloudCheckr’s Cloud Management Platform (CMP) to address the challenge.

Sarah Christen, Cornell University’s assistant director of community platforms and cloudification services, considers CloudCheckr to be a key to the university’s strategy in the cloud.

“We want everyone to benefit from the agility, flexibility and lower cost of AWS services, but of course some people are reluctant to leave their familiar on-premises data centers,” Christen says. “By offering total visibility and valuable recommendations, CloudCheckr helps people feel even more comfortable stepping into the AWS Cloud.”
