Enhancing Efficiency: How Malaysia Utility Company Leveraged AWS and Strateq for Cloud Migration and Management
About Malaysia Utility Company (MUC)
Our client, an established utility company based in Malaysia, focuses on the provision of electricity services to a wide array of customers, ranging from households to businesses and industries. With a strong foothold in the energy sector, the company is actively engaged in multiple energy initiatives, including renewable energy projects, to cater to the country’s increasing energy needs while emphasizing sustainability and advancement in the power industry.
As the business expands, the need for agility, scalability, reliability, security, and application resiliency has become crucial. With their current data center nearing maximum capacity, MUC decided to migrate some of their on-premises applications to the cloud. This shift to a Cloud platform subscription model aims to provide MUC with faster time-to-market and the ability to scale in response to demand. However, to ensure seamless management of all applications in the cloud, an enterprise Landing Zone adhering to cloud best practices and aligned with MUC’s security policies needs to be established before the migration begins.
MUC selected AWS due to its position as a market leader in the Public Cloud segment. AWS is known for its maturity, stability, and ability to provide reliable, secure, and fast accessibility.
