Ascend principals have established working relationships and has relevant experience working with leading cloud vendors as well as emerging vendors – key ones being Amazon, Savvis, RackSpace, TerreMark (Verizon), Bluelock, Latisys, ViaWest and more.  Cloud adoption is gaining momentum and still in early majority stage. With our collective experience leading cloud strategy and migrating private DC infrastructure to CoLocation services, managed services, private cloud and SaaS clouds, we know the strengths and minuses of cloud vendors and migration ‘pitfalls’ which needed to be avoided with careful planning prior to contract signing phase with the vendors.

Our unbiased, neutral advice often come in pre-planning discovery, RFP and requirements phase as well as procurement and contract negotiations phases.

Since many of our consultants have deep architecture depth – we are able to provide the architecture governance when such migrations occur. This spans Network – Voice and Data, Security, Servers, Storage, Help Desk/Operations, Call Center, Application and Integration and Data Management areas.

Leading practice among many clients is Hybrid Clouds which require right level of security, architecture and DR readiness.
