Over the years, Cloudology’s solutions have helped many global firms to embrace cloud computing, virtualization, and other technologies that increase their ability to leverage on available resources. The firm is well known for its server, software and hardware virtualization and Data Center consolidation efforts in the US and Europe. “While bringing the international data centers to collocation in the U.S., we ensure that we cover all the client concerns—ranging from physical security concerns to virtual security as well to any hidden information the stakeholders can benefit from,” says Amin. The company’s services are mostly focused in selecting the right approach for the client rather than convincing them to adapt to new technologies. “Human resources and change management were always notified with the process, and concepts like game theory are exercised to avoid disruptions during the migration,” Amin adds.
For instance, Fischer Francis Trees and Watts, a BNP Paribas subsidiary and global investment management firm, is no stranger to the functionalities and benefits of the services offered by Cloudology. The company, after assessing the client’s existing technology moved over 500 physical servers from a data center in London to the U.S. and secured three more data centers in Boston (for disaster recovery), New York and New Jersey.

Cloudology’s most recent data center migration was for Forest laboratory migration after it was acquired by Actavis in July 2014. In this engagement, the firm engaged a resource with communication degree to handle their communications effort with stakeholders. The firm analyzed how each decision would impact the overall end result of each migration to avoid lot of space for errors. This detailed approach enabled Cloudology to execute seamless data center transition.
Amin believes that behind the successful execution of migration strategies and services to the clients, the knowledge and skills gathered from his professional education at NYU has a huge role to play. “It has helped us look beyond the technical aspect of the migration technology,” adds Amin. “In this line of work, understanding people’s resistance to change and having insights on political, financial, and economic impacts not only enable successful migration but helps to stay ahead of the competition.”
Cloudology has an exciting roadmap planned. “We have registered the Cloudology Trade Mark across the U.S. This means that we can now offer services to our clients, unhindered in any part of the country,” beams Amin.
