WCL Management Services (WCLMS) is an international management and consultancy organisation, specialising in passenger transport and logistics operations. Their focus is on high quality service delivery, in providing localised transport solutions with worldwide management and consultancy experience.
WCLMS obtained the contract to provide transport services and solutions for competitors, staff, volunteers and dignitaries during the Commonwealth Games, held on the Gold Coast in 2018. They quickly realised that the logistics of the contract required their systems and infrastructure to be scalable, fault-tolerant and highly available.
Fitzroy IT was approached by WCLMS to assist with moving their current applications off their ageing, on-premises Windows servers and expand their offering to be able to cater for all the different divisions, requiring transport solutions at the Games. Fitzroy IT worked with WCLMS to plan, design and migrate to a platform that could support their requirements. During implementation, WCLMS’ transport management application was replicated onto multiple Windows EC2 instances to cater for each division. All instances were securely isolated from each other, using AWS EC2 best practices.
