Case Studies

University of the Witwatersrand

University of the Witwatersrand - Sakai

Wits had an urgent requirement to move their Sakai Learning Management System (LMS) from their on-premise servers to the cloud due to the COVID-19 lockdown and to ensure availability, security and compliance.

University of the Witwatersrand

University of the Witwatersrand - BigBlueButton

Due to Covid-19 and the subsequent nation-wide lockdown, Wits needed to adapt and offer more online training, meetings, and interactions for its staff and students.

University of Pretoria

University of Pretoria

The University was hosting its web applications on co-located and on-prem infrastructures and often experienced downtime. The University also was incurring high capex and co-location costs.

The eAr Academy

The eAr Academy

What The eAr needed, more than anything else, was a company to partner with who would understand the nuances of what they were trying to achieve.

After a few business development meetings, it was decided that Silicon Overdrive would custom build The eAr a new LMS (Learning Management System) platform that would meet their specific requirements and subscription model.

DaySeven Training

DaySeven Training elected to run their Moodle environment on AWS, and the initial deployment met all their organisational requirements. As their business scaled and demand increased, their environment could not scale and was running out of capacity, which resulted in frequent downtime and could result in potential data loss.

Excellent understanding of Aws architecture and platform. They also have good systems knowledge and they executed our migration to the cloud with a clear project plan. Their project management skills and interpersonal skills were second to none.

Since we've started with Silicon Overdrive the service has been exceptional, my partner and I are both non technical people and the team at Silicon Overdrive has shown us great patience in ensuring we understand the migration process, best practices, benefits of being with AWS walking us through the technical jargon and have also displayed immense dedication to our start-up working with us after hours as the guys on our technical team work day jobs and are only available after hours.

Silicon Overdrive has proven themselves as a very competent AWS partner that has delivered high quality solutions to CareConnect. They have also assisted CareConnect to optimise their AWS usage spend and recover costs where not needed, as part of our maintenance agreement with them. They have also shown great flexibility to support us, when dealing with our requirements and budget limitations. The only area of improvement that we believe Silicon Overdrive needs to focus on is growing their resource base to create more capacity.

Silicon Overdrive were very professional in their proposal and implementation of the designed architecture. There were a number of adhoc changes that were required and they were very willing to help and accommodate those along with advice on best practice.

Silicon Overdrive has impressed us with its service levels from the day we commenced our relationship. Their understanding of AWS products and services, combined with the brilliance and efficiency in setting up the project was matched by the excellent communication and guidance we received. Would use them again in a heart beat as well as recommend them to anyone needing assistance in this regard.
