Amazon Web Services (AWS) joined the movement in early April, to support the cloud migration of data and resources. Cost was a burning issue, with the cost of data transfer in this first crucial phase being the highest priority, so the team began brainstorming how to lower it. Firstly, we donated AWS credits to SUCHO, which allowed them to store data in the Amazon Cloud for free. Secondly, the SUCHO team has also received free technical support from AWS Cloud Economics team and Solution Architects. Finally, as a longer-term solution, SUCHO has been onboarded to an open data program in AWS that will support their cloud storage needs.


SUCHO, a group of more than 1,300 cultural heritage professionals, received AWS promotional credits and FinOps help to migrate the websites of Ukrainian cultural heritage organizations, museums, and libraries to the cloud. At the time of writing this article, the project has archived more than 25 terabytes of data from over 3,000 websites, with many of the original websites going offline shortly after SUCHO backed them up. This shows how important and urgent the migration was. The project is still ongoing, so this number is expected to grow.
