New to cloud infrastructures? Applying Knowledge will get your initial accounts, network infrastructure, and server deployments up and running. A good cloud-based strategy will give you a strong basis to leverage your business and make more informed business decisions critical to your success. Our qualified consultants can help you build your cloud strategy to benefit your entire organization.

Already on AWS or another cloud platform? We provide ongoing EC2 system administration and project work to ensure your environment runs smoothly. We can update your roadmap and reassess your environment to optimize your current cloud services. We will do a complete configuration review for your current cloud solution, whether it is AWS, Azure or another platform, and create a strategy that works best for your business goals.

Our assessment approach includes analyzing your environment and collecting business intelligence through analysis and discovery, gap analysis, requirements gathering, and your business goals. We will work together to use this information to build a strategy customized for your short- and long-term business strategy.
