You need the consultants at House of Brick standing in your corner, helping to guide the process and evaluate the outcome.

House of Brick focuses on the entire application system stack, which is something that makes them fairly unique. There are not a lot of companies like HoB that have a more holistic perspective on what it takes to keep business critical systems running well.

A business critical system (system stack and associated lifecycle) also needs to fit within an organization. Many times an organization must change or mature in order to adequately adopt a virtualization or Cloud Computing model. House of Brick helps clients to implement the changes they need to adopt virtualization and cloud computing successfully.

Our services include:

  • Health Checks
  • Reference Architecture
  • Right Sizing
