Aurion completes migration to Amazon Web Services


Brisbane-based people and payroll solutions provider Aurion has successfully completed its migration to Amazon Web Services from a third-party data centre, which it says will enhance the client experience.

Aurion says the migration has delivered Aurion Cloud — a “more robust, scalable, and improved security platform” hosting a highly available application for Aurion users — and offers simplified access to its people and payroll solutions for all users, from a single unified portal.

Aurion has worked with AWS since 2015 when it migrated all its internal workloads to the AWS cloud.

Following the successful adoption, Aurion says it made the decision to move its entire client hosted environment all-in on AWS, which has now been completed.

Kathryn Wilson, executive general manager for Aurion, said, “Our successful migration to AWS has led to increased productivity for our business and helped us to deliver greater capabilities to our customers.”

“It has given our customers immediate benefits such as increased security, scalability, and reliability. We will continue to offer a premium client experience and leverage AWS for stability and innovation to further enable us to deliver quality solutions and services.”

Adam Beavis, commercial director for AWS in Australia and New Zealand, said, “Managing wages is one of the most important and sensitive responsibilities for any business, and payroll software must be reliable to maintain employee satisfaction and remove the risk of errors. AWS enhances availability and scalability of cloud services, which allows Aurion to serve its customers with confidence.

“AWS has been certified Protected by the Australian Cyber Security Centre for 42 services hosted and delivered from its Sydney region. This means that Aurion, at no extra cost, has reaffirmed its assurances to Australian state and government customers that their domestically hosted data is secure on AWS.”


Australia is a cyber espionage hot spot.

As we automate, script and move to the cloud, more and more businesses are reliant on infrastructure that has high potential to be exposed to risk.

It only takes one awry email to expose an accounts payable process, and for cyber attackers to cost a business thousands of dollars.
