We Support People, Not Sockets or Cores. People.

Whether for IT infrastructure or cutting-edge research, we believe in empowering people to do amazing things. When people succeed, teams succeed, and when teams succeed, organizations succeed. We start where it matters most: with the people.

With this model, we don’t count, audit, or bill for systems, entitlements, cloud instances, virtual machines, or containers because they don’t count. It’s the people who count.
