This 31-year old VAR has undergone a radical transformation that has put it at the vanguard of the cloud computing revolution. The biggest bang came last year with its $350M acquisition allowing it to extend its middleware software skills and vertical industry expertise with a robust network operations center with storage and server capacity on demand and managed services muscle that provides the gateway to the cloud.
Recently Sirius became the first solution provider in the world to receive IBM’s prestigious Cloud Builder designation and is one of the few to build a HP Cloud Center of Excellence. This put them in the enviable position of being able to offer world-class, either on premise, off premise, private, public or hybrid cloud solutions for customers
