The Challenge

Make a Change Canada approached Cloudacio with a major challenge related to managing multiple cloud and hosting platforms while complying with Canada’s complex regulatory landscape.

The organization needed a robust Cloud Management and DevOps solution that would ensure compliance with Canadian regulations, enhance security, and streamline their operations.

Our Solution

Cloudacio proposed migrating and consolidating all Make a Change Canada’s platforms into Amazon Web Services (AWS), providing a single, secure, and compliant environment for the organization’s operations. The proposed solution included:

Security & Compliance: Ensured that all data processing happened within the Canadian region and that data was encrypted both at rest and in transit. We also implemented robust security measures to protect against potential security breaches and comply with Canadian regulations.

Backups: Designed and implemented a multi-layered backup management system that relies on local backups, EBS volume snapshots, and S3 to ensure the safety and on-demand availability of the organization’s data.

Email Management: Deployed a self-hosted email service capable of ensuring deliverability and anti-spam protection to Make a Change Canada users.

The migration and consolidation of all Make a Change Canada’s platforms into AWS provided the organization with a unified and secure environment for its operations, enabling it to focus on its core mission.

Cloudacio continues to support the organization with Cloud Management and DevOps, ensuring all its platforms are up to date and enabling the organization to remain compliant and secure while providing essential services to Canadians in need.
