Hamdan Bin Mohammed Smart University (HBMSU) has become the first in the Middle East and North African (MENA region to successfully migrate all its systems and applications to the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud. 

The digital transformation is in line with HBMSU’s pioneering efforts to establish a new educational culture by shifting away from traditional models of education in order to raise highly qualified and globally competitive future generations. 

The collaboration between HBMSU and AWS enables the University to create multiple cloud-based virtual datacenters using Amazon’s virtual private clouds, while maintaining highest levels of security and reliability, together with seamless control of data flow. 

This will ensure HBMSU’s access to features that can enhance controls of cloud resources and deployment methodologies, as well as multi-level security systems and protection tools against all sorts of malicious attacks. The achievement further opens new horizons for innovation, research and exploration.
