How We Do It



Transform Hybrid to All-In Cloud for 650,000 Users

The American Federation of Government Employees’ (AFGE) financial and business challenges were solved by reducing its technical debt from the maintenance of a hybrid environment and annual operational support costs while facilitating a successful migration path.

Challenge:  The AFGE was utilizing a hybrid infrastructure with both VMware and AWS but the environment was in a transitory state. The AFGE decided to take a phased approach to migrate all workloads to AWS and SaaS-based solutions in order to retire all premise-based server infrastructure and ensure that the environment supporting over 650,000 federal and government workers is unaffected.

Solution: Day1 provided insight and expertise to complete a forklift migration of its remaining 24 servers and convert them to AWS EC2 instances. Day1 also ensures operational continuity during core production hours, troubleshooting, testing, training staff and validation of new architecture.   


92% Reduction of Disparate Cloud Accounts

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is expanding additional systems into the cloud by unifying and centralizing IT management of over a dozen disparate cloud accounts. The FCC is able to take advantage of a single cloud platform to leverage AWS’ economies of scale to lower costs.

Challenge: The FCC had committed to cloud adoption but had difficulty managing their rapidly expanding cloud infrastructure and multitude of vendors.

Solution: Day1 provided consulting services to relocate the FCC’s data center, and migration strategies to consolidate development & billing under one vendor. Day1 provides on-site support to the CTO and Deputy CIO and provides strategic vision for the agency’s cloud optimization. We provided consultation services & subject matter expertise in the FCC’s recent efforts of data-center consolidation and relocation.
