Challenge: Air Force Air University Cloud Migration

Solution: To address the USAF Air University (AU) requirement to modernize, create world-wide ubiquity, and cloud-enable their new, integrated Student Information System (SIS) and Learning Management System (LMS) solution to support over 220,000 users worldwide, Smartronix is developing a next generation Commercial Cloud Services (Dev, Test, and Production) capability for AU in a Microsoft Azure IL4 Virtual Data Center (VDC) ensuring compliance with Department of Defense's (DoD) strict security requirements. Our team is providing a fully-managed functional commercial cloud environment supporting core application functionality. This effort is focused on Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud capabilities and includes a fully hosted Cloud Access Point (CAP) via DISA, and a CAC-enabled IdAM solution that supports authentication for application and privileged user OS access. We produced all required documentation to support accreditation through FedRAMP RMF (IL-2) and DoD RMF (IL-4) for the customer to quickly and easily provide the Authorizing Official a body of evidence against the entire posture for this solution. Throughout the process, Smartronix has assisted Air Education and Training Command (AETC) leadership in migrating multiple on-premises applications to support their needs into this environment. We provided guidance and direction for leveraging cloud serverless compute solutions to increase cost savings across the environment. This included Azure database services, storage services, application gateways, VPN, and integration with Office 365 for SMTP delivery.
