Entelligence lowered Pearson’s NetApp FSx on AWS Cloud cost by 50%. Working as a private-label subcontractor under the AWS brand, Entelligence delivered value for both AWS and the client, and completed the project in record time.


Pearson, an international company with more than $4 billion in revenue, wanted to cut costs and move their NetApp on-premises storage to the AWS Cloud. But the project faced multiple challenges, such as performance troubleshooting, single-pane of glass monitoring/alerting, and cost optimization for cloud FSxONTAP deployments. Plus, the lack of trained, certified, and experienced consultants threatened to drive up time and costs.


Working as a brand extension of AWS Professional Services Team, Entelligence streamlined the FSxONTAP deployment for Pearson in record time. An essential part of Pearson’s data migration to the cloud involved a NetApp-to-AWS FSx migration, where Entelligence consultants identified operational inefficiencies, optimized IOPS throughput, and reduced overall footprint.


It has been a revelation working with [Entelligence consultant] Ming. He is an expert in his field and has the utmost desire to provide best possible solutions for any issues. I have honestly not seen anyone from AWS so much involved and eager to help.

– Laxman Puri, Sr. Software Engineer, Pearson
