Kansas State University Migrates PeopleSoft Production HR System to AWS in Under 48 Hours

Kansas State’s data center, located in the basement of Hale Library, sustained extensive water and smoke damage as a result of a three-alarm roof fire. With only a few days to meet an upcoming deadline that required the PeopleSoft HR system to be operational for payroll processing and transmission, Sierra-Cedar worked with Kansas State’s staff over the Memorial Day weekend to migrate Kansas State’s production HR system to AWS.

Key Project Highlights:

  • Migrated the university’s PeopleSoft HR production environment to AWS
  • Established a security-aware architecture
  • Helped improve batch processing and OLTP performance
