For over ten years now, cloud has been on the lips of every technologist and IT director, and the technology is finally becoming accessible and practical for businesses of all sizes. From the largest enterprise corporation down to the mom and pop shop, hybrid cloud and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) solutions can deliver real benefits immediately upon adoption. The trick is finding the right cloud provider.

Faction is a cloud and infrastructure as a service (IaaS) provider. Through Mindsight and Faction, clients can access nearly unlimited infrastructure resources and host their applications remotely in the cloud.

Mindsight partners with Faction for a number of reasons. Their data centers are some of the most secure in the world, and all of their facilities are Type II SSAE 16, SOC 1 & 2, and HIPAA compliant. Plus, they have locations in seven areas across the country, with an additional facility in Europe. This gives our clients the peace of mind knowing that their data is housed within a safe, stable, and redundant environment.

Mindsight even built our proprietary cloud automation service, CloudStream, to connect with the Faction cloud. CloudStream builds a virtual bridge between your VMware admin portal and Faction. You can then migrate live workloads to the cloud in ten clicks—and back in just ten more. There’s no new software to learn. Your application team can support and manage these migrated VMs from the same hypervisor management portal, as if they’re still located on-prem.

Between CloudStream and their exemplary cloud environments, Mindsight is proud to maintain our partnership with Faction.

Most companies have a similar data security strategy.
