How 8C8 Can Help Your Business



Our Story

After migrating enterprise SaaS applications to the cloud and having struggled through 30% VM failure rates, 10 day support resolution times, and $120k+ worth of credits for failure to deliver, we realized there had to be a better way.

8C8 founders understand where the cloud provides value and where it over promises and under delivers. 8C8 optimizes your hardware and software solution to save up to 90% on your total cost of ownership (TCO).

8C8 is built specifically to help bridge the gap between where our client’s business and software solutions are, and where the cloud delivers real value. With 8C8’s experience, we have the unique ability to provide an optimal solution across hardware, software , security, support, and connectivity that cloud solutions cannot match.

At 8C8 we work hard to ensure we meet our SLAs because we understand how any downtime can impact our customer’s business.

Security  Reliability  Savings

Reliability, great support, security and cost efficiency should not be mutually exclusive.

While the cloud might deliver for applications that are specifically architected, built and deployed for the cloud, they struggle to deliver for the many applications that were not built for the cloud.

8C8 enables you to migrate to the cloud at your own pace, mixing PaaS, IaaS, cloud and bare metal infrastructure optimized for your applications and usage. 8C8 provides reliability, support, security and efficient pricing for all your applications, not just the ones that are cloud-ready.

8C8’s Hybrid Bare Metal servers and Managed SQL are built on enterprise infrastructure and Azure ExpressRoute.  8C8’s unique combination gives you the best of both worlds: high bandwidth & low latency to the cloud, with outstanding services and pricing that only 8C8 can deliver.
