Organizations across the United States Government are on unique journeys to utilize cloud-based solutions, and for most of these agencies, that means trying to execute a hybrid cloud strategy. The implementation of these solutions and applications can be an uphill task, and a misjudged deployment can spell disaster for an enterprise, ultimately affecting its mission.
One technology service provider and value added reseller that ensures to guide such organizations toward a successful path is Flywheel Data. Flywheel Data is staffed with an elite crew of engineers, trained on the broad array of Cisco products and solutions. Cisco, a leader in IT, networking, and cybersecurity solutions, enables Flywheel Data to architect, procure, and implement the right products for its clients. “While working with customers, our partnership with Cisco allows us access to a wide portfolio of solutions from enterprise networking to core infrastructure to cyber security,” explains Michael Parks, President and COO at Flywheel Data. With the entire breadth of Cisco’s portfolio at its fingertips, Flywheel Data is the ideal partner to offer clients a broad view of the endless possibilities of deploying a hybrid cloud implementation.
A key objective that Flywheel Data helps its customers with is modernizing IT infrastructure. Flywheel Data does so by providing an actionable roadmap to transform current on-premise IT infrastructure to a hybrid cloud-based deployment. “This is where our partnership with Cisco gets interesting, because we get to integrate Cisco solutions with other leading technologies like Nutanix, Cohesity and Riverbed” comments Parks.

This allows Flywheel Data to truly transform systems architecture and empower clients with agile applications, hardware, and other solutions to ensure improved efficiency and increase their cyber security posture.
One component of Flywheel Data’s IT modernization roadmap includes evaluating client’s application deployment strategy. In many cases, the best approach to modernize client’s applications and enable them for cloud deployment is to leverage container technology. Flywheel Data offers their expertise in implementing an enterprise-wide container and kubernetes strategy. “From day one of client engagement, we deliver immediate impact, while continuing to deliver meaningful results to our customer throughout our relationship,” says Parks.
“Flywheel Data strives to be the most trusted and respected solution provider for IT solutions that enable our customers to accomplish their mission objectives” states Parks. A large part of the firm’s business revolves around the federal sector, and Flywheel Data will expand its services in federal while also catering to some of the big names of the private sector. The technology service provider, while continuing to invest in its partnerships with Cisco and other companies, also partners closely with new players in the market. One such company is Zscaler. Zscaler is redefining the way enterprises are securing assets in a decentralized, mobile, and cloud-based world. “Moving forward, we will continue to make sure that we are properly positioned to help our customers with newer technologies and assist them in achieving mission objectives,” concludes Parks.
