Amazon Web Services Solutions
House of Brick helped our first customer move their Oracle EBS application into a virtualized environment way back in 2006. After more than a decade, the practice of virtualizing business-critical Oracle and SQL Server workloads has become standard practice for most of our clients.
When it comes to business-critical systems in the public cloud however, many clients have not yet moved their most business-critical systems into the cloud because of certain perceived, or real barriers, to cloud adoption. Having helped clients address similar concerns around virtualizing their critical databases, offers House of Brick vital insights when it comes to overcoming barriers to public cloud adoption. Which of a client’s concerns are true barriers and which are perceived barriers driven by misinformation and doubt? House of Brick’s experienced and knowledgeable consultants work with clients to determine the ideal cloud migration path that addresses these barriers, and offers an optimal cloud architecture based on the client’s unique business requirements.
