The University has found that, when deploying projects with a limited life-cycle, the ability to utilize unlimited flexibility, securely and efficiently, under the watchful eye and unrivaled expertise of our engineers, is invaluable.

"Storm On Demand® & Cloud computing offers promise in that we can scale up when we're busy and down when we're not. And with dedicated MySQL servers and dedicated iSCSI/SAN storage, we can get performance with unlimited Apache instances. It's very exciting to us."
"Storm® is perfect for our development process as well. We often don't need a beefy box 24x7, but there are times where our development server feels a bit small. Being able to duplicate & run staging environments is incredible. For our clients in production, scaling up when they're linked from CNN.com or The Colbert Report would ensure uptime while keeping costs low while usage is low. I could go on about how excited I am about Storm on Demand!" -Alan Ivey, Systems Administrator.
