Core Competency: Cloud

By utilizing cloud technologies, companies become more flexible, cost efficient, and can respond more quickly to business changes.
Making the shift to a public, private, or hybrid cloud infrastructure means eliminating the technology silos that many businesses have spent decades building. By moving workloads to the cloud, you create an instantly responsive, software-defined datacenter that allows you to reap the benefits of a completely agile, highly utilized, and simplified IT infrastructure.

Cloud Services

The average company uses 738 cloud services, 670 of which are unknown to IT departments. That’s over ten times more than what IT expects.

High-Risk Uploads

The average company uploads 85.6GB of data to high-risk destinations online, such as video sharing, file sharing, and web conferencing services.



Take Control of Your Cloud

Most cloud providers have either a consumption-based or an always-on model. Cost efficiencies can be gained by mixing and matching workloads to pay only for what you use.

By utilizing a consolidated billing and reporting platform like the Optio Cloud Portal, companies can accurately track usage and charge-back, manage consolidated billing and provisioning, and optimize resources.



Areas of Cloud Transformation



Reduce the cost and complexity of traditional on-premises IT by virtualizing compute, storage, and networking. Leverage converged platforms and lay the foundation for hybrid and public cloud.


Change the way on-premises IT works with automation, to compete with service levels offered by public cloud providers. This enables the transition to “IT as a Service”.

Public Cloud

Moving workloads to the cloud enables agility and business innovation, while executing transformational initiatives to your on-premises IT. Look for toolsets that enable consolidated billing and reporting across multiple cloud providers.

Hybrid Cloud

Extend your onsite datacenter to the cloud and manage the entire hybrid infrastructure with the same level of security and performance of your current virtualized solution. Leverage virtual networking platforms that can be used in both public and private cloud.
