IT with an Intelligent Edge
For more than two decades, Accellis has helped thousands of organizations with technology infrastructure design, implementation, training, and support. We build custom solutions using the industry’s best tools and practices spanning on-prem, hybrid cloud, and public cloud. This includes all cloud managed services variants such as IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS. Put simply, we know cloud.
Key Consulting Engagements
Microsoft Azure is a cloud computing service that provides the reliability and power of Microsoft-managed datacenters. Whether 10 employees or 10,000, Azure is usually the way to go. Better performance, better security, better redundancy – lower cost – what more could you ask for? Well, you could ask for a partner with time-proven expertise.
We do it all from IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS to AI, IoT, Serverless, Bot, and Web App. Gold in three Cloud competencies, Silver in App Dev – we are the right partner to tackle your biggest organizational challenges. We can also help you secure Microsoft PIE funding to pay for some or all of your project!
Moving to the cloud allows you to do much more than just ditch physical equipment. When done right, it can improve every aspect of your business — and Accellis is the right partner for the job. We specialize in Microsoft 365 (formerly, Office 365). As Gold certified partners, we can expertly convert you from local Exchange, Gmail, or other providers to the 365 cloud, including all mail, contacts, calendars, public folders, and other shared resources.
Assessment, Architect & Migration Services
Accellis has spent two decades designing technology infrastructure to meet any need. From physical hosts to virtual machines to SANs and beyond, we’ll help you build a solution that works well, is cost effective, and takes full advantage of Hyper-V, VMWare, and other modern technologies. Whether your needs involve physical infrastructure, public cloud, or hybrid cloud, we’ll help you select, design, and implement the right tools to grow business.
And we know all the tricks of the trade. When does it cost less to stay on prem? When does it cost less to go public cloud? What trade-offs are we talking about between the two? How do I meet the challenges of GDPR? How can I leverage artificial intelligence into my core business apps? Is it really possible to get Microsoft to pay for my project? You have questions, we have answers.
Still hesitant? We provide IT Assessments which provide a snapshot of what you have, what you need, and how to bridge the gap. We are able to monitor your site down to disk IOPS performance and network egress to provide an accurate picture of the total cost of ownership of on prem vs public cloud installations, including migration risks and key milestones.
Get off on the right foot with SharePoint Online (SPO) by allowing us to migrate your file server workloads and deliver them to endpoint devices in a format exactly like users are familiar with – Windows Folder Tree. SPO is no mere file server. It’s an entire business productivity and security solution.
Benefits include better mobility, redundancy, control, security, and firm productivity. It has direct integration into the 365 security stack for labels, encryption, and data loss prevention while eliminating clunky VPN usage with a single sign-on secured by MFA, built in version control, granular auditing, security in sharing within and outside the organization, and even co-authoring in a live document.
Sometimes, SPO isn’t the right tool for a given workload. We’ll let you know when your needs are better met by file servers/SMB file shares/local storage, Azure managed disks, Azure storage accounts, Azure Files, and Azure NetApp Files. And we’ll help you determine the right mix of cost and performance to meet any archive, cool, or hot storage requirement.
Accellis consultants aren’t order takers. We can help you select a solution, assist with the implementation, convert historical information into new systems, train your staff – and everything in between. But we’ll go much further than that. Our expertise across hardware, software, and workflow allows us to tailor the tools to your exact requirements, and our strategic guidance will help you ask the right questions. By working with us and out cloud managed services, you can fully leverage your new systems, ensure they are comprehensively secure, and know that you are taking complete advantage of everything they offer.
AI is about leveraging computers at scale to do the things they do best so that you can do your best. Accellis Technology Group is a Microsoft Gold Partner in Midmarket Cloud and is a Microsoft Silver Partner in Application Development. We help organizations of all sizes and maturity levels discover, plan, and build AI into their businesses.

We’ve grown to appreciate Accellis not as a typical vendor or service provided, but truly a partner in our practice. I trust them completely with our most sacred asset other than our people: our technology. They are knowledgeable, dependable, and innovative. As someone who has a keen understanding of technology, I appreciate the level of skill and expertise that they contribute to our practice. Bottom line for me is that our success can be directly linked to the work Accellis has done. Our legal professionals, both staff and attorneys, can focus their entire day on the practice of law, as many of the things that Accellis has recommended to us or designed for us all makes our work easier, more efficient, and ultimately more profitable. As with every technology product, we have had our challenges, but they are always resolved. When I’ve needed them in the middle of the night, they’ve been there. I’m thankful each day that they are on my team, and they’ve never let me down.

On behalf of our firm, I want to extend our thanks and appreciation to Accellis’ tremendous efforts yesterday in responding to the virus/worm that infected our network and workstations. I was out of the office when the virus hit but from what David, Jeff, Brian and others have reported, Accellis identified the nature and the scope of the issue even before we knew there was a widespread problem of any type. Accellis responded immediately and in force to root out the problem and restore our systems to working order in just a few hours – if not for those efforts, even we could see that the virus had the potential to shut us down for a much, much longer period of time. As Jeff said, we’ve wondered what might happen in an IT crisis, whether because of a virus, cyberattack, disaster in the server room, or other issue. Yesterday afternoon, we faced just such a scenario and Accellis more than proved it was up to the task.

Wanted to thank you again for scrambling Jason and Dave to the office yesterday to help with the staff move... The move happened before I had expected it to. I’d planned to discuss a plan/strategy with you guys on Monday and then take care of the move with the on-site engineer on Tuesday. Obviously that’s not how it played out. It would have been understandable if you’d been unable to provide on-site assistance on the fly. After all, you had no notice. In fact, I was really calling just to see who might best walk me through some of the issues over the phone. But you rounded up a couple guys and they came and hammered it out without complaint, even staying late to make sure we’d have few issues for the following morning. They were terrific. ... You and the team have been fantastic over the years.
