Cloud IaaS Engineering


HIS on multi-cloud


Azure, AWS, Hybrid

Project scope

— HIS architecture implementation on AWS cloud

— Multi-cloud integration

About the client

The client operates 45 hospitals, 10,000+ beds, and 314 diagnostic centres across India, Dubai, Sri Lanka, and Mauritius. In a global study of the 30 most technologically advanced hospitals in the world, its flagship institute was ranked #2, ahead of many outstanding medical institutions worldwide.

Business challenges

  • The client was using a single cloud provider for its Hospital Information System (HIS) needs.
  • However, this was posing some difficulties with scale and costs, which they wanted to overcome to make their healthcare delivery more effective.


The client’s applications were hosted on Microsoft Azure. We leveraged our time-tested Nimbus framework to de-risk the client from high dependency on a single cloud provider and enable scale. Our multi-cloud strategy involved the use of AWS, integrated with the client’s existing Azure-based components.
