Hawaii Uses WCSA for Cloud Contract with Dewberry

Dewberry, a leading professional services firm, has been selected by the State of Hawaii to assist in the transition of public websites into the public cloud. As an authorized Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner, Dewberry offers the full suite of AWS products along with expertise in architecture and migration strategies.

The services will be provided through the Western States Contracting Alliance (WSCA) contract that Dewberry was awarded in 2012.

While the Western States Contracting Alliance (WSCA) contract seemed to be about GIS in the cloud originally, it was broadened to general cloud issues (APB covereage of final contract), Therefore, it makes sense that the detail of Hawaii's deal does not seem to include GIS at all. Intead it says Dewberry will:

plan, design, and implement cloud infrastructure to support the hosting of 25 public websites. The main components of the system will include:

§  Testing and production of AWS EC2 cloud instances to store and serve all existing web pages, scripts, and other non-database-related content;

§  Testing and production of AWS MySQL Relational Database Service to host all of the supporting databases; and

§  Replicated failover systems for quick disaster recovery.

This is the first use of the WCSA contract that I've seen
