CloudHesive is an Amazon Web Services Managed Services Provider that offers consulting, DevOps, and managed services with a focus on managed security, reliability, availability, and scalability. They help companies reduce their operating costs and increase productivity while improving their cloud security posture by migrating their mission-critical workloads onto the AWS platform. The main priority is to consistently facilitate clients’ success by introducing them to the best practices in the cloud.
To do this, CloudHesive partnered with some of the most reputable security providers with controls designed to increase visibility into environment activity. As a managed services provider, they constantly monitor new threats and provide 24/7 support. They also provide MSP customers with their free proprietary scheduling tool called CloudPoxee—a secure, reliable, and affordable way to manage cloud computing networks and turn down instances while not in use.
CloudHesive believes usability and functionality do not have to be mutually exclusive, nor should they be. That is why they performed their due diligence to compile an expert team of dedicated engineers to architect, implement, and manage environments in the most efficient way possible. “Our employees are the foundation of our success, and we invest in them, so they can provide our customers with superior service,” CloudHesive CEO, Jim Walker says. “Every team member undergoes in-depth technical training and participates in partner events, community involvement, and mentoring.”
CloudHesive maintains a versatile client base from numerous industries— many with an international footprint— including travel, high-tech IT, health care, retail, government, and financial services.

They understand the specific operational and compliance needs of each vertical—allowing them to provide the expertise to not only migrate customers out of their data center environment, but also increase their capacity and global presence. This includes migrating big data environments, OLAP databases, and mission-critical applications.
CloudHesive helps alleviate the uncertainty associated with cloud migration, so customers can focus on their more pertinent everyday business processes. They also help companies implement a reliable, cost-effective disaster recovery plan, so they are protected in the event of an outage or breach.
The CloudHesive team works with the clients to ensure compliance regulations are met by aligning with their annual audit schedule and providing commonly requested supporting documentation in an agreed upon timeframe. CloudHesive also utilizes an OpEx strategy so that the customers only pay for the cloud services they need. “Our team makes sure the clients won’t have to deal with IT emergencies or regular maintenance, so their internal technology teams can focus on the core initiatives of the business,” Walker points out.
CloudHesive also recently received certification as an AWS Public Sector Partner, which extends its services and solutions to government, public education, and non-profit organizations. In the firm’s long list of satisfied clientele is Radixx, which offers an e-commerce platform for the airline industry on a global scale. They faced challenges in scaling their applications, increasing performance, and strengthening data security, while maintaining excellent customer support. CloudHesive helped Radixx build an OpEx cloud strategy, and migrated their entire workload onto IBM-Softlayer and AWS, thereby managing the Radixx environment end to end—including managed security monitoring and maintenance in compliance with regulatory standards.
“Not only do we have a lot of money coming through our network, but because of that, we are subject to some intense auditing regimes. CloudHesive has put together a network that is secure and is always in compliance with those regimes,” adds Mike Barrera, CIO, Radixx.
