Kablamo was engaged by one of Australia’s leading Universities, home to some of the most cutting-edge research and development projects in the world. The computing requirements across the University’s various Research and Development departments were exceeding their current capacity creating both bottlenecks and quiet periods.
Because they require large amounts of computational power to perform complex modelling and data analysis, universities have traditionally maintained their own computing infrastructure. However, this requires a large investment in hardware as well as high maintenance and development costs. Additionally, academic workloads are uneven, with high peak loads that stretch resources and then periods of time when infrastructure is largely unused.

Kablamo was engaged by the University to deploy AWS Service Workbench, so that the University could assess how it could be used by research departments. From an initial proof of concept it was quickly moved into production as the University saw the value of the solution and working with Kablamo.
