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 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 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 the experience to get you there safely and efficiently.
Accellis is a Microsoft Gold Partner with unrivaled Azure experience. We do it all from IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS to AI, IoT, and Web Apps. Gold in Cloud, Silver in App Dev – we are the right partner to tackle your biggest organizational challenges.
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), SharePoint Online, and Microsoft Azure. 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.
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. We could stand here and talk forever practically. Built in version control, granular auditing, security in sharing within and outside the organization, co-authoring in a live document, integrated chat. On and on!
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.
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? You have questions, we have answers.
We provide traditional IT Assessments spanning a snapshot of what you have, what you need, and how to bridge the gap. We can also monitor your site down to disk IOPS performance and network egress to provide you with an accurate picture of the total cost of ownership of on prem vs public cloud installations.
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, you can fully leverage your new systems, ensure they are comprehensively secure, and know that you are taking complete advantage of everything they offer.
I want to extend our appreciation to your employees, especially Larry Horvat, for all the improvements they've made to our computer network. They've done a wonderful job of keeping us updated on what we should expect and how much progress has been made. We knew that by using your services that we would be improving the way we do business, but we did not know that the transition would be so effortless. We've been able to do more than ever because of the practical solutions your staff has successfully implemented.
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.
Just want to thank you so much for your help on Monday. We got up and running without a hitch. You guys always go the extra mile for us and it is very much appreciated.
Accellis has taken all of the normal IT tasks, server maintenance, support, etc…, and made it all worry free. After I met a few of the techs and started dealing with them, I ceased to have any concerns about our IT environment, because I know that they're there watching over it all for me. Accellis provides a level of peace of mind and comfort to my IT department that is unmatched elsewhere. They often alert me of problems before I even realize they exist. They will walk with me hand in hand through an issue, or jump right in and talk tech if I’d like. They're extremely reliable, very friendly, and always a pleasure to deal with.
I would definitely recommend Accellis for a number of reasons, but there are two that stand out. The first is that you can always get through to speak to technician at the Help Desk. There is never a time when we have had to leave a message on a voice message system. Second, and just as important, is that next to our employees, our network is the life line of our business. Working with Accellis provides us with the support and technology that we require to operate day-to-day without worrying about down time...Accellis has exceeded our expectations in the time we have worked with them.
During the past 29 years in this business, I can honestly say that I have more confidence in Accellis than anyone else I have worked with. Our last IT person had us using pieces-parts computers. Now, we are all using state-of-the-art Dell computers. Since we began working together, your consultants have proven that they are more than capable of handling any issue that comes our way.
It is a real pleasure to work with Accellis and their highly skilled, professional, and friendly staff. They find and provide cost effective technical solutions to our business needs. Their quick response to address any technical problems that may arise shows their dedication and commitment to help us keep our business operations working smoothly. I highly recommend their technical services.
Accellis is fabulous to work with! Everyone at Accellis is very professional, knowledgeable, polite, helpful and above all, they are always available to answer any questions or fix any issues at any time, day or night. Our firm has truly benefited from all of the improvements that they have made to our computer network over the years. Without a doubt, I would highly recommend Accellis to any company who is looking for impeccable, invaluable service.
In 2010, the growth of MSI dictated the need for servers and software. Through a mutual IT friend, MSI was referred to Accellis Technology Group. Accellis was instrumental in getting MSI to the next level and our relationship has been strong since. Computers and connectivity are our lifeline. They are vital to our processes. Though our business is international, our hours of operations are 8-5. We love what we do so it's not uncommon to work around the clock communicating to take care of our clients and work with our global partners. Accellis has helped us do that. My favorite thing about working with Accellis is the quality of customer service. We have worked with many on the staff and have had the pleasure to meet many face to face. They are positive, knowledgeable, accountable. They understand our needs and have a lot of patience.
I am writing this letter to thank you for your outstanding work on the Security & Risk Assessment. Your expertise and attention to detail were tremendously valuable. You joined us at a very critical time as we were getting ready to be audited as part of a risk assessment ordered by one of our major suppliers. You were able to quickly understand the objectives and priorities and make quality recommendations to improve our network and security processes. The quality of your work was recognized and appreciated by other team members. Not only did you thoroughly review our systems and processes, but you were also able to assist with reviewing and improving our IT and IS policies. As a result of your work and recommendations, we passed our recent audit with flying colors. Again, I would like to express my sincere thanks for your contributions. I look forward to the opportunity to work together again.
