What You Get With Your Initial Consultation
Before we develop your custom cloud solution, we first take the time to understand your business. We want to know what you do, how you do it, and the challenges you’re facing as a company. We’ll also review what your goals are for your hosting environment and how you’re currently interacting, both internally with your team and externally with your clients and partners.
If you already have an existing infrastructure, we’ll analyze your current environment. It’s during this stage that we often uncover additional issues you may or may not have known about. This analysis will also help us determine the proper sizing for your environment.
Because every business has different needs, during your consultation, we’ll look at the different types of hosting we can provide. In some cases, a company may benefit from an off-premises solution, while other businesses stand to gain more from a hosting solution offered by one of our own data centers. Whatever the outcome, you can trust that our professionals will present you with the solutions you need, tailored specifically for your company.
Have Concerns About Compliance?
At Weidenhammer, we understand that every industry has different rules and regulations that must be followed to meet compliance. With a diverse client profile, we’re thoroughly aware of these laws and restrictions and will work to ensure your custom solution meets or exceeds all of them.
From high-availability to your own private server, we can work out a solution that allows you to rest easy with the confidence that your company is completely in compliance with industry-specific regulations, protecting the private data of both your clients and your employees.
From Consultation To Cloud-based Solution
In addition to cloud hosting, we also provide an array of managed services, including colocation, managed colocation, and SaaS solutions such as Office 365. We can even provide infrastructure as a service and fully managed hosting. Our initial consultation allows us to identify these opportunities and present them to you for review, allowing you to decide for yourself, with all the advantages and considerations presented in way that’s easy to follow and comprehend.
In fact, throughout the consultative process, you’re working with the same Solutions Consultant and Pre-Sales Engineer from start to finish. The experts working on your solution will take the time to educate you on current cloud offerings, correct any misunderstandings you may have, and present information in a way that’s ready to review with your team.
