Amazon Web Services (AWS) Worldwide Public Sector helps government, education, and nonprofit customers deploy cloud services to reduce costs, drive efficiencies, and increase innovation across the globe. AWS provides trusted, cloud-based solutions to help you meet your mission. Citizens, students, and government are more involved than ever in driving innovative change. Whether it is for development and testing, enterprise applications, high-performance computing, storage, backup and archiving, disaster recovery, web, mobile, and social apps, virtual desktops, or data center migrations, government agencies, education institutions, and nonprofits are using AWS to help achieve their missions.

Running your solutions in the AWS Cloud can help you get your applications up and running faster while providing the same level of security that organizations like Notre Dame, City of McKinney, and the US Navy rely on. In order to provide end-to-end security and end-to-end privacy, AWS builds services to comply with the strictest security and privacy standards, follows security best practices, provides appropriate security features in those services, and documents how to use those features. The AWS Cloud makes a broad set of services, partners, and support options easily available to help make sure that you can focus on what will make your solution a success. And the AWS cloud is uniquely positioned to provide scalable cost-efficient solutions for public sector customers to find ways cloud services can be deployed to meet mandates and increase collaboration across agencies and organizations. Making the journey to the cloud as easy for our customers as possible, AWS provides cloud services through a pay-as-you-go model, delivering access to technology resources that are managed by experts. Simply access AWS services over the internet, with no upfront costs (no capital investment), and pay only for the computing resources that you use, as your needs scale. By using AWS’s inexpensive and highly scalable infrastructure technology, organizations around the world can stop paying for computing power they aren’t using - and get more mission for their money. AWS has dedicated teams committed to helping public sector organizations of all sizes use AWS to pave the way for innovation and, ultimately, make the world a better place through technology. The AWS Partner Network is made up of a strong and growing community of companies that offer a wide range of products and services on the AWS platform to address virtually any use case.

The coming end of Microsoft SQL Server 2008/2008R2’s support in July 2019 and the end of Windows 2008’s support in January 2020 means California agencies are evaluating their options to migrate to cloud environments. In December 2018, the California Department of Technology issued a Technical Alert[1] reminding state agencies and departments to begin immediately planning for the migration from Windows 2008 servers to the cloud if they haven’t already done so. This migration will allow California’s government to take full advantage of the scalability, efficiency, security, and cost savings that cloud services can provide government agencies when compared to traditional on-premises solutions – an exciting prospect no matter if you are a government IT manager or an agency with an important public mission.
