Migrating workloads to the Public Cloud – is it right for you?

Cloud adoption has risen drastically in the last four years since the global pandemic showed the importance of widespread digital transformation.  Organizations need to access their systems from anywhere, anytime, along with the ability to adapt and scale at a moment’s notice. More and more customers have been moving their Oracle workloads to the Cloud – and many have chosen to do so with Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Migrating workloads to the Public Cloud
Apps Associates has worked with dozens of customers on their cloud migration journeys, and we have seen first-hand how this can positively impact their business. Here is a snapshot of customers who have recently leveraged AWS cloud to successfully transform their legacy Oracle footprint of applications, databases, and technology.


Biscom is an enterprise fax and secure file transfer provider that leads the industry with award-winning solutions for some of the world’s largest regulated organizations in industries such as healthcare, finance, and government.

Biscom partnered with Apps Associates to migrate mission-critical workloads across three independent data centers within twenty-six weeks.

Capsule summary:

  • Migrated workloads from three (3) separate data centers around Boston, Massachusetts USA to AWS including all compute, storage, network, telecommunications, and mail exchange.
  • Mission-critical production workload used by over 6,000 customers and 1 Million+ users with thousands of file transfers per hour.
  • Biscom had approximately 200 servers and 67,000+ telephone numbers used for FAX services that required a migration with very limited downtime or none at all depending on the migration wave.
  • Apps Associates Infrastructure Managed Services (IMS) re-architected, migrated, and tuned the AWS footprint.

Outcome highlights:

  • Biscom was able to exit its data centers according to the planned timeline. The migration reduced costs, drove operational efficiencies, increased fault-tolerance, and sharpened an already secure posture.  It did this all with increased performance and the ability to scale any future infrastructure demands with the extensive list of AWS services.
