Presentation Topic: Benevity’s AWS Moonshot

Description: Migrating from an IaaS provider to the cloud is no easy feat and when you add in a hard deadline of 6 months to the project then things really get interesting! The core members of the Benevity AWS migration team (SRE) will share their views on the initial migration plan, how things went wrong and how they got back on track, choosing to go with cloud native over lift and shift, and the lessons learned along the way.

AWS Level: Beginner

Nina d’Abadie, SRE Manager at Benevity
