Business Challenge

A diverse and distributed workforce needs consistent access to all required systems.

Technical Challenge

Traditional virtualization is expensive, and challenging to manage.

Solution

Modern cloud-based virtualization has a much lower cost to get started, and removes the physical layer of server equipment to manage. Valiant’s cloud experts built a fully functioning version of their infrastructure in the cloud, eliminating the need for traditional server “refreshes”, eliminating the server room, powering down the server gear, selling off the spare parts and curing all the headaches in one fell swoop.
