 The on-premise hardware supporting the teaching programme was ageing and not able to sustain demand from the institution’s 8,000 students and 1,500 staff.

Strathmore University was among the first education institutions in Kenya to adopt and deploy workloads on the AWS cloud, which has since increased the number of students studying abroad.
