A Fast Turnaround from On-Premise to Cloud

A migration from on-premise to cloud infrastructure in just a few days helped keep Florida's emergency communication onboard.


  • Florida Division of Emergency Management

Start your web project.

As a result of a "shelter in place" order for the state, traffic to the Florida Division of Emergency Management's (FL DEM) site spiked, doubling overnight, causing pressure on the existing on-premise infrastructure that it could not sustain.

FL DEM needed help, and they needed it fast.

Enter FL DEM's team of digital experts. Blend Interactive, alongside FL DEM's digital partner Oz Digital and Episerver (now Optimizely) themselves, planned and executed a contract for a move from on-premise to Optimizely's DXP cloud-based solution in less than three days, with was then implemented and provisioned in less than 24 hours. While this is a unique situation, it also shows the strengths of both Blend and Episerver when it comes to working in collaboration with partners in an agile environment.

The results speak for themselves. Working as a cohesive team enabled us to get things done quickly and efficiently, with a common goal of keeping the site up as a critical resource for Florida residents.

  • Migration of the full site to Episerver DXP in less than three days
  • Implementation and provisioned in less than 24 hours
