Workopolis is Canada’s leading career site for job seekers and a leader in HR technology solutions for employers. Since 2000, the company has helped connect employers and candidates through exclusive partnerships and community sites, social networking, and mobile optimization.


Challenge

Workopolis wanted to move to the cloud to coincide with an office move in Toronto. The initial environment included multiple Data Centres in the GTA (Greater Toronto Area).


Why AWS and Lucrodyne

Amazon Web Services (AWS) provides secure, cost effective, flexible and scalable services in the Cloud. In the 2016 Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service, Worldwide, Gartner named AWS as the number one Cloud Provider in the world.

The Lucrodyne team provided technical and architectural expertise for all the critical stages of the transition.


Result

Data centre successfully transferred to AWS including moves of data centre locations into separate Availability Zones on AWS. Corporate services were transferred to a smaller and more cost effective Colocation facility to complete a hybrid architecture.
