Cloud

The "cloud" is about computing based on the internet. In most cases today, shifting to the cloud is the best way to ensure your business stays both current and competitive.

While in the past "digital transformation" was about things like "paperless office" and "mobile computing", today the term is associated with transitioning from on-premises to a more cloud-based information systems infrastructure.

Why Cloud?

Our Cloud Services

To truly understand and appreciate something, one needs to experience it first hand. 

Because we own and operate a specialized data center ourselves, we truly appreciate the advantages of the cloud computing offerings available today.

We started using Amazon's EC2 back in 2006. In fact, we were invited to beta test the service prior to its general availability. Since then we have helped dozens of clients migrate to AWS, build systems, and implement IT projects that take advantage of the broad technology offerings that AWS offers today.

A recent success story in this area is Kount, who was just acquired by Equifax. When their aging on-premises PHP/Oracle centric fraud-detection system hit a limit of a few thousand transactions per second, they turned to us to prototype a solution. Within a few weeks, we demonstrated an AWS-based system that was an order of magnitude more performant. Kount embraced the cloud approach and never looked back.

As Microsoft-certified ISVs for over 25 years, it was also natural for us to embrace the Azure cloud offering, which brings the benefits of the superb Microsoft technology ecosystem. In many ways, a more traditional business is easier to migrate to Azure, as it seamlessly integrates with the in-place, familiar, and well-understood Microsoft office applications, active directory, SQL Server, Sharepoint, and all the rest.

Last, but not least we work extensively with Google cloud, which is a great fit for large AI and machine learning loads and as a back-end for mobile-first applications.

NOT JUST The PUBLIC CLOUDS, HOWEVER

While public cloud services are very much the usual focus and topic of discussion, for many businesses and circumstances a pure public cloud solution is impractical, inappropriate, or simply not viable.

We bring a sophisticated understanding of these challenges, with deep expertise in private networking, edge computing systems, containerization, and virtualization. It is not by chance that VMWARE's offshore office constantly tries to poach our staff from across the street...
