E N T E R P R I S E l CASE STUDY l Customer Profile This large government agency employs thousands of people in hundreds of distributed offices. The work they do requires collaboration with several other agencies which necessitates seamless data sharing and knowledge transfers for everyone to operate quickly and efficiently. The security, performance, and availability of the application services used by this government organization and their peer agencies are top priorities for their information technology (IT) and network operations (NetOps) teams. Strategic cloud initiatives planned and executed by IT over the last few years eased workforce shifts during the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent return to offices. Throughout their digital transformations, application migrations, and workforce shuffling, the NetOps team has relied on their NETSCOUT ® solutions to assure performance, availability, employee digital experience, and security. The Challenge The agency has split the hosting of their well-known business and internally developed agency applications between their cloud partner Amazon Web Services (AWS) and their existing private data center. Employees, wherever they are located, are connecting to the agency's applications via the closest Equinix co-location (co-lo) facility, where the agency has deployed mostly access technology, including Internet Switch links (ISLs) and Virtual Private Network (VPN) gateways. From the co-los, employee traffic is sent to the location where the application in use is hosted. All the applications were originally hosted in the data center and, as the agency embraced digital transformations, the IT organization has been strategically migrating key applications to their AWS environment. Like any government agency or enterprise organization, their goals HIGHLIGHTS The Challenge • Data Center transformations expanded agency network to AWS Cloud and exposed performance management blind spots • Need for success migrating applications to the cloud The Solution • Virtual nGeniusONE ® Service Assurance solution • vSTREAM ® virtual appliances The Results • Assure quality performance for employees with application migrations from data center to AWS • Extending value in their existing nGeniusONE service assurance solution while improving collaboration between agency IT staff and AWS cloud partner Government Agency Successfully Migrates Applications to AWS Cloud With Proactive Visibility with NETSCOUT nGeniusONE Service Assurance
