Ijhana Fast Cloud Deployments and Easy Cloud Management Makes for Happy Customers

ProfitBricks helps Ijhana's clients save 80% off other providers while making cloud computing simple enough that their clients can manage the cloud environments after the project is over.

Situation

IJHANA works with clients in all areas of the technology industry, across all areas of the value chain at all stages of the product lifecycle. They advise, design, build and market companies, and as part of their offering to improve their clients’ competitive advantage, they move organizations’ infrastructures to the cloud. It is important for them to use an IaaS provider that enables them to build a data center while teaching their clients how to manage it for themselves with no need for further involvement.


Solution

Kevin Calloway, Managing Partner and CTO at IJHANA, always refers his clients to ProfitBricks when they want a cost-effective, quick and visual cloud solution:

“ProfitBricks is an end-to-end IaaS solution that’s so easy to manage, even entry level engineers can do it. It enables our clients to see the cloud via virtual representations. Data centers can be built for anything from Magento e-commerce sites to infrastructure for ERP or CRM apps. The ProfitBricks IaaS enables extensive configuration options and we are free to optimize the environments of our clients as they move from on-premise to the cloud.”

IJHANA introduces their client to the ProfitBricks platform and teaches them how it works or sets up a live demo with one of our Cloud Engineers. It builds a data center with ProfitBricks’ Data Center Designer (DCD) according to a client’s individual needs and goals, showing the client how their data center can be easily managed and maintained by the client’s internal team.


Benefits

IJHANA are able to save money for their clients as well as allowing them to manage their cloud independently:

Transparent Pricing and Lower Costs

IJHANA benefit from being able to play with servers, CPU cores and RAM in real time, taking the guesswork out of cloud pricing. What’s more, the costs are significantly lower than elsewhere.

“With ProfitBricks, it’s easy to estimate costs, so we can compare options and create quotes for our clients. Monthly costs with ProfitBricks have been 80 percent less than the price of other provider’s costs. On top of that, ProfitBricks has a better product that’s much easier to manage in the long run, and we don’t end up with too much infrastructure.”

Fast Set-Up Times

ProfitBricks’ on-demand platform gets IJHANA’s clients up and running in the cloud in a much shorter timeline than other cloud providers.

“We can go from nothing to a complete data center in a couple of hours. It is really amazing from a time standpoint; this process used to last for six weeks. For us, for this reason, it’s always ProfitBricks.”

Flexible Settings and User-Friendly DCD Interface

Wanting to focus more on building and designing and less on maintenance, IJHANA welcome the unique benefit of ProfitBricks: our flexible, easy to manage data center management tool, the DCD.

“The DCD’s interface is so comfortable, you can be sure you can up- and downscale with no problems and no unnecessary costs. I can crank a database up to 8 or 9 cores and 60GB of RAM to process a job much faster, before turning it back down to what I need it to be. Nothing is holding us back behind the scenes, so it’s easy to trust. ProfitBricks provides the flexibility to be able to utilize resources as we need them. We can walk away after we build a data center for our clients, and they can maintain and manage it for themselves.”

Referral Partner Program

With the lowest pricing in the industry and a very generous referral program, IJHANA sees ProfitBricks as a long-term partner.

“While the cloud revolution is still at its early stages, we see our role as cloud enabler for an increasingly cloud-ready marketplace. ProfitBricks rewards us for this role.”
