PeopleAdmin HigherEd Platform Migrated to Amazon Web Services
Austin, TX — December 12, 2022 – PeopleAdmin, the leading provider of solutions for higher education, is now hosted fully on Amazon Web Services, the world’s most comprehensive and broadly-adopted cloud platform. As a fully AWS-hosted service, PeopleAdmin is on the cutting edge of SaaS companies around the world and is excited for the benefits this move will bring to customers.
With Amazon Web Services, the HigherEd Platform has become more secure and highly scalable. With no need to purchase or requisition physical hardware, PeopleAdmin can now quickly flex with more system resources as needed to meet customer and usage demand, as well as quickly and easily upgrade to provide the best experience available.
As the largest global cloud provider, AWS offers top-of-the-line security for its customers. PeopleAdmin has its own secure environment, and our team has added additional firewalls for protection.
“Amazon Web Services is the biggest, most trusted name in cloud providers. We’re proud to be the only platform in the HigherEd space that is fully hosted on AWS,” said Chengdian Lin, Group Vice President of Product Development at PeopleAdmin. “By migrating to AWS, we are supporting the latest and greatest technology for our customers, enabling innovation, and creating a more powerful platform.”
With AWS, customers can expect faster resolution of any issues, due to Amazon’s size and flexibility. The increased scalability and capability, as well as the cutting-edge technology employed at AWS, will bring a faster overall platform experience for customers and for applicants using the HigherEd Platform.
The HigherEd Platform is already operating at 99.9% uptime in 2022, and we expect to maintain and even improve on that uptime and on our platform stability in the new year with AWS.
