Let us help you get from Basic Cloud to Cloud 2.0 and truly transform your business for the long-term
Let's face it, most companies are not doing cloud right, they are not modernizing at the pace of modern cloud (which is fast as h*ck) and are being left behind to be disrupted by their more nible competitors. Cloud customers are also often time left overpaying for idle, under-utilized and unoptimized cloud resources. Cloud Modernization and Optimization combined with active Cloud Cost Intelligence and Security Monitoring is your ticket to staying in the game and thriving in an ever more competitive, dynamic and complex tech ecosystem.

Containerization helps organizations focus on their core business objectives, leading to greater potential revenue gains. Container adoption also strongly impacts the portability of applications between cloud vendors. For instance, portability of apps is increased by 45% when using Containers. In addition, increased portability allows companies to be more flexible in deployment and reduces vendor lock-in. Organizations that use Containers experience a 40% reduction in downtime. Containerization features like granular access permission to isolated microservices, policy automation, and standardization drive increased compliance and more stable products. The usage of Containers also correlates with greater usage of agile methodologies. Using Containers increased the number of mission-critical applications developed and maintained using agile methodologies by 36%. Data suggests that supporting agile and DevOps efforts through technology such as Containers can improve productivity.Check it out
The use of Serverless architecture helps organizations be more productive and reduce costs. Serverless enables organizations to deploy features more quickly, release new builds more frequently, and drive higher levels of cloud-native deployment. Serverless organizations can better match their infrastructure to the demands of their applications and workloads using automatic scaling and reduce overprovisioning of compute resources that sit unused. This results in a 23% improvement in compute utilization, translating into direct cost savings for these organizations. The efficiency inherent in Serverless, such as pay-for-use billing that avoids overprovisioning, leads to cost savings for organizations. Organizations using Serverless report spending 39% less on IT infrastructure. This can represent millions of dollars in savings depending on the size of the organization. Organizations that have implemented Serverless report converting monolithic applications to cloud-native applications 22% faster.Check it out
Managed Data is a fully managed, purpose-built database service. The service supports diverse data models and allows organizations to build use case driven, highly scalable, and distributed applications. Examples of Managed Data services include Amazon Aurora, Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon Redshift, Google Cloud AlloyDB for PostgreSQL, Google BigQuery and MongoDB Atlas. Organizations using Managed Data report an increase in the number of applications built using cloud-native architecture by 71%. Having more data for insights, faster time to insights, and more cloudnative apps drive a 28% increase in revenue for organizations using Managed Data solutions. Managed Data not only allows organizations to make the most out of their data but enables business growth in the form of agility due to far greater accessibility, integration, and utilization of data.Check it out
