Partner Services

House of Brick is flexible in the types of services that we provide to our customers and partners in the virtualization of business critical applications. No one project is exactly like the next, and so a degree of flexibility in analyzing and scoping is expected. In order to facilitate the sales conversations between our partners and their customers, House of Brick has bundled our most popular introductory services into the following packages.

Pre-Sales
VBCA Roundtable

This is typically done in conjunction with our partner as a video or phone conference to introduce the customer to House of Brick technical solutions architects. House of Brick employs a consultative or customer-centric selling model, and will therefore jump right in to analyzing the customer situation and providing immediately useful consulting information. This is typically a one to two hour session. There is no charge to the partner or customer.

VBCA Immersion
Service

This service is a tightly scoped kick off project intended to provide the end-customer with all of the processes, best practices, architectures, and even a fully functional VBCA proof of concept implementation for a selected business critical application or database. The VBCA Immersion Service will remove technical and emotional barriers that the customer may have concerning the virtualization of their business critical systems.

Oracle License
Review

It is our experience at House of Brick that most customers who use Oracle technology have overspent on licenses and support fees. The knowledge that our consultants have about Oracle licensing practices and the details of the Oracle EULA allow us to identify significant potential savings. With appropriate architectures and best practices, virtualization of business critical systems can also have a significantly positive impact on reducing Oracle fees.

VBCA Performance
Clinic

Many times a customer will attempt to virtualize Oracle or some other kind of business critical application on their own, and will run into unacceptable performance or behavior. Unfortunately, they may then determine that VMware is not ready for a VBCA, and will defer back to a physical environment. House of Brick has seen this situation many times, and can often diagnose and fix the problem in a relatively short period of time.
