The last quarter of 2018 witnessed an evolution in the U.S. government’s cloud computing initiative. Its legacy federal cloud computing strategy, “Cloud First” got a long-overdue sequel called “Cloud Smart.” This historic shift triggered a new trend, where most government agencies are going about adopting the one-of-a-kind model to attain a safe and secure cloud migration. Considering the pace at which technologies propel, switching to a cloud infrastructure is no longer a choice but a necessity for federal, state, and local government entities. Aligning well with this essential need, Virginia-based TekSynap enables organizations to attain strategic and balanced cloud adoption in an agile and cost-effective manner.
“In a bid to effectuate a successful cloud migration, TekSynap offers a powerful combination of cutting-edge technology, innovation, and forward-thinking that enables our clients to stay ahead of the pack,” says Darrin Snyder, Information Architect at TekSynap. By cultivating a peerless corporate culture at each level, the company positions as a systems integrator that combines the infrastructure and process models of larger organizations with the agility of a small company. With this equilibrium in their corporate DNA, TekSynap meets clients’ requirements to achieve additional savings, security, and deliver efficient services.
The basic shift in the paradigm from “Cloud First” to “Cloud Smart” evolved from a notion to adopt cloud solutions for all technology deployments to cloud architecture according to individual agency’s needs. TekSynap made available cloud strategies that align with the requirements for technology deployment under “Cloud First” model; they re-aligned, as proponents of the “Cloud Smart” model, to focus on implementing best-fit solutions for agencies.
“We have come a long way with the security guidance for cloud offerings, and I think these are still evolving to cover more recent trends in cloud deployments, focusing more on SaaS and PaaS solutions due to the benefits of not having to maintain underlying hypervisors and systems,” adds Snyder.

TekSynap is collaborating with cloud service providers to bolster understanding of security practices, and educate clients to take advantage of these offerings.
Unlike their competitors, TekSynap focuses on delivering a full spectrum of IT services to its customers in the public sector. The firm strategically collaborates with Microsoft and Amazon to provide the industry-best solutions at a convenient cost. These partnerships, coupled with TekSynap’s agility, innovation, and expertise, enables them to offer a powerful, innovative suite of solutions, including the deployment of a multi-vendor cloud solution for government agencies. A success story well exemplifies the partnership’s value proposition. TekSynap had implemented a high performance-computing model in the client’s ecosystem. It was capable of high speed and reliability computing in the AWS cloud while deploying the organization’s web presence and application delivery via Microsoft Azure. This helped the client to take advantage of the best-of-breed cloud providers.
Additionally, aligning with the evolution in automated systems has aided TekSynap to develop efficient and cost-effective solutions. They continue to gain maturity and show promise for environment administration and awareness, fostering reliable automated systems, which can detect issues, respond to mitigating actions, and route the information for review or approval. Another aspect that differentiates TekSynap is their competent human resource. The firm recruits top talents, fosters a culture of teamwork and rewards employee contributions through work flexibility, and exceptional benefits packages. Furthermore, TekSynap ensures constant nurturing of the workforce through a generous education program and a healthy work-life balance.
With such a resilient value-proposition and the ever-increasing need for holistic cloud deployment, the future looks exceptionally bright for TekSynap. “It is imperative that as we expand, we maintain our employee focus and the agile nature of a small business that has made us successful,” concludes Snyder.
