MirrorWeb, built purely on the cloud, provides the digital history of the UK Government by archiving all government websites and social media feeds.
Founder and CTO Philip Clegg runs the entire architecture on AWS, in part because of the need to store terabytes of data without worrying about security or storage availability.
