    Product / Service Highlights:

    RKON Next Gen Cloud

    The RKON Cloud was developed from the ground up by an elite team of IT specialists in response to challenges in the industry and inflexible competitive options for dealing with these challenges. Clients require low cost, but the public cloud options have significant limitations around legacy/custom applications and security. While those providers can deliver custom solutions via their private cloud offerings, their dedicated custom environments are often expensive and lack granular scalability. Companies might pick one provider but end up with two separate clouds. RKON consistently excels at the difficult 20% that legacy cloud providers struggle with—what we call “The Red Zone.”

    Next Gen Cloud Vision

    RKON began with a vision and, through superior engineering, developed a cloud with the scalability and low cost of a public cloud and the customization and security of a private cloud. RKON’s elite team drew experience from years of building and managing agile IT operations at customer sites and combined that with the continuous adoption of innovative emerging technologies. Instead of taking the easy IT functions and leaving the tough parts behind, RKON developed RKON Cloud, a fully managed next gen cloud solution that delivers:

    • 997% Uptime Since 2011
    • Legacy Application “As Is” Compatibility: Physical Servers, Old OS in the Same Cloud
    • DRaaS That Allows Offsite Server/App Level DR and Failover
    • Compliance as a Service (CaaS): ISO27001 Compliance Security/SSAE16 Data Center
    • Fully Managed Turnkey Features: Nothing to Implement or Manage

    Who Is a Good Fit?

    Any client with a business goal or compelling event that requires an immediate change to an agile, scalable, compliance-driven provider — a cloud resource that can take ownership of IT operations and create the opportunity for IT to move upstream to serve the business.
