Why Red River for Cloud Services?

We have worked with a variety of state agencies and public entities on running their mission-critical applications in the cloud.
  • Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS): Provision processing, storage, networks, and other fundamental computing resources so that they can deploy and run any software they like in the cloud. You do not need to manage or control the underlying cloud infrastructure, but still maintain control over operating systems, storage, deployed applications, and limited control of select networking components.
  • Platform as a Service (PaaS): Run cloud-native applications on the cloud platform leveraging the cloud infrastructure. All tasks associated with the underlying OS and infrastructure, such as OS upgrades and security patching, are automatically taken care of by the platform. Organization maintain control over the deployed applications and limited application hosting environment configurations. Backup, monitoring and scaling can be easily configured with platform tools.
  • Cloud Broker Service: Red River can manage the use, performance and delivery of cloud services for you. As an intermediary between you and the cloud providers, we will help you through the complexity of cloud service offerings, and assist you to adopt the cloud services that best meet your needs.
  • Cloud Technical Service: Red River can help you define the cloud migration strategy and create architectural blueprint for your cloud adoption. Our technical team can help you develop cloud native applications, automate your continuous integration and continuous delivery pipeline, and modernize your application portfolio leveraging the cloud infrastructure and platform.
