Leveraging multi-cloud framework for one common identity across AWS and Azure


The Challenge

The education customer came to Xello needing to implement a multi-cloud identity framework solution that extended their existing cloud environment to Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure, and provided secure and seamless access when staff need to work in either.

The main problem the customer faced was they could not meet growing service requests for cloud resources. They also lacked a common identity for each user to use across both cloud platforms, as their existing multi-cloud environment and identity system was completed ad-hoc and manually, without standardisation or automation of processes. This made it hard for IT to consistently support internal requests, provide access and control security.
