What kicked off as a migration project, quickly evolved into a rapid response to mobilize the Delphi workforce for remote work due to the novel Covid-19 virus spreading globally. As many companies experienced the widespread adoption of a remote workforce, the ability to support through IT varied significantly and left many searching for solutions in the cloud to provide their workforce a cost-effective and reliable solution to meet the new demands. It was with this in mind that Eplexity and Delphi hit the pause button on their migration to address the Critical Priority. Soliciting the help of AWS, Eplexity and Delphi engaged in a POC with respect to their AWS Workspaces offering. With many workers across the Delphi profile utilizing 10+ year old hardware, the POC would utilize a mix of Power and PowerPro bundles to evaluate the most appropriate solution for the vast majority of the workforce. After many reported that they workstations actually ran faster through AWS Workspaces than they did locally, it was determined that the Delphi workforce would have the ability to work remotely...and arguably better than they had previous to the shutdown.
With the remote work solution handled and supported by Eplexity's CXOS Mission Control, it was now time to shift back to the migration effort for the Delphi environment. Employing methods of Replatform for the Domain Controllers, and Rehost for the remainder of the application groups, Eplexity and Delphi would spend the next weeks actively migrating and testing workloads newly minted in the AWS Cloud by transportation of AWS CloudEndure and management through the AWS Migration Hub. After completing the migration over the course of five weeks, Delphi had now found a new home both their physical work presence, and their virtual work presence.
