Digital education is now standard. It will also revolutionise how we teach and learn in traditional classrooms.
EdTech solutions will now scale up to meet consumers’ dynamically increasing demands, and cloud-based delivery is essential for efficient and scalable online education. As cloud usage grows to meet India’s needs, rising costs and security become critical issues.
In addition to academic information, users share personal and sensitive data on any online platform. Thus, it is an EdTech solution providers’ responsibility to secure their users’ cloud data. As more people are using the cloud, the need for hack-proof solutions is growing too.
EdTech companies are working hard to protect their customers’ data, but this may require a lot of security R&D and a dedicated security team, which will add to overall costs. To save money and time, many EdTechs overlook security. However, a scalable, reliable, secure and cost-effective infrastructure is possible with AWS Cloud.
Since cloud operational cost and security are crucial and tricky to understand and implement—especially for large scale apps—AWS is hosting specialised virtual sessions called “AWS Cost and Security Optimisation Clinics for EdTechs”. These virtual sessions focus on helping EdTech businesses and tech leaders develop and manage their EdTech solutions more efficiently on the cloud.
Led by AWS solution experts, the sessions are ideal for learning the best practices and finding an approach to maximise deliverability, reliability, capability & security while optimising platform costs. The attendees will get an opportunity to interact and learn from industry experts and clear all their doubts about the cloud-based solution offerings by AWS.
Cost Optimization Clinics
The cost optimisation online session covers a variety of tools and techniques for cost-effective architecture, including multiple required resources, matching supply with demand, and best practices for cloud financial management, expenditure, and usage awareness & optimisation over time. It also looks at how EdTech companies can cut cloud costs while reinvesting in education innovation.
The sessions also cover the AWS cost optimisation framework based on five key pillars: operational excellence, security, reliability, performance efficiency, and cost optimisation.
Option 1: Thursday, 17 February, 3:00PM - 4:00PM (IST)
Option 2: Thursday, 3 March, 3:00PM - 4:00PM (IST)
Security Optimization Clinics
The virtual session on security optimisation focuses on how companies assess their secure cloud environment and which practices suit their needs. The session focuses on common security gaps and the best methods to mitigate them in building a robust security system.
The session also covers critical information on the AWS shared responsibility model, tools to monitor the AWS environment’s workload footprint, and the assessment approach in the AWS environment. The session will provide insights into customer-managed cloud security through case studies.
Option 1: Thursday, 24 February, 3:00PM - 4:00PM (IST)
Option 2: Thursday, 10 March, 3:00PM - 4:00PM (IST)
These clinics are a must-attend for EdTech companies and leaders interested in learning how AWS’ services can amplify the efficacy of their solutions and change the game for educational institutions by improving security while lowering costs.
