About Us

Silvr is a professional services organization specializing in world class cloud engineering solutions for mid-to-large enterprise businesses. Our mission is to lead our customers toward modern cloud architectures that deliver continuous, easily measurable business value. We are advocates for automating infrastructure and building tool chains proven to accelerate development and release cycles. We maintain a strong command of emerging technologies and patterns proven to reduce complexity, stabilize environments, assure high build quality, harden security, and enable full stack operational visibility in the cloud.

We understand that no two organizations are at the same spot in their transformation journey, and each faces unique organizational and political challenges attached to legacy systems. The solutions we put forward are adaptive to the constraints of each situation; tuned to quickly win the confidence of both business and operational stakeholders.

About Us

Industry Experience

Our baseline of contextual systems knowledge comes from decades of experience in a broad range of industries.

Health Care

Healthcare

We have helped Healthcare organizations in the insurance and medical device markets with the advanced orchestration of cloud-native architectures and porting legacy product systems to the public cloud across global availability zones. From these experiences, our team has gained invaluable exposure to architecting for stringent regulatory compliance environments between the United States (HIPAA) and European Union (GDPR).

Energy

Energy Exploration

We have deep experience helping Energy companies deploy globally portable and scalable applications in the public and private cloud. Due to the compute-intense nature of the advanced CAD, GIS, and IoT tools in this space, we’ve learned that careful orchestration is a quantifiable value driver when running these tools in the cloud.

Public and Government

Public

We have helped state and local government agencies migrate workloads to the cloud under sensitive budget and regulatory compliance pressures. From this experience, we gained in-depth exposure to architecting with AWS GovCloud services, designed to meet strict US government compliance requirements for handling sensitive data, as well as FedRamp and ITAR regulations.

Retail

Retail

We have helped several of the world’s largest retailers build automated dynamic-scale infrastructures in the public cloud, finely tuned to support extreme swings in cyclical and promotion-driven demand for their digital commerce businesses.

Genomics

Genomics

To support sophisticated analysis and storing of genomic data at scale, we have helped scientists and university programs to harness the public cloud’s near-infinite compute and storage capacity with careful consideration of resource spend.

Services

Our most typical engagements combine all of these areas of expertise and practical disciplines, starting with a discovery and assessment process lead by our solution architects. We’re also prepared to engage at the tactical level in any of these areas of focus to help you accelerate work-in-progress.

Digital Transformation

Transformation

Digital Transformation and Cloud Migration programs are the most mission-critical change initiatives facing technology organizations today. Those who adopt efficient microservice architectures, disciplined DevOps cultures, and build responsive cloud operations teams will have the best chance of achieving the velocity demanded in the new digital era. Fundamental changes to traditional team structures, new roles, skillsets, and updated business processes are required. Our team has surfed this change wave for nearly a decade and is well-equipped to help you assess where you are on your transformation journey versus where you desire to be. From there, we can map out and coach the structural, tooling, and process changes we believe will get your organization on the optimal path to increased velocity.

Cloud Migrations

Migrations

Migrating enterprise workloads to the cloud is our core competency. Our approach is rooted in a highly disciplined automation mindset, and our consultants bring an arsenal of battle-tested orchestration patterns to drive highly effective, successful migration outcomes. Whether you are in the process of evaluating a specific cloud provider for migration, hybrid cloud architecture, or seeking a provider change, we can help you stand up reference architectures in any cloud environment quicker than you might imagine. If you have already started your journey but are encountering speed bumps, we have experts ready to get you back on track.

Automation and Orchestration

Automation

Automation is a boundless area of opportunity to drive efficiency and velocity in your release cycles. We are relentless advocates for the business value of “Automate Always, and Early.” Performing a repeatable task twice is once too many, from our view. The earlier you automate, the greater the contribution value of freed resources over the lifespan of your workloads. Using modern tools and proven patterns, we help our customers create immediate, lasting business value by eliminating virtually all repeatable tasks at every stage of the release management process. We can help you achieve light speed releases at the push of a button from source control to test suite and security scan integration, to environment configuration, resource provisioning, and deployment targets.

Optimization

Optimization

Moving your workloads to the cloud should deliver significant resource efficiency and cost savings over traditional private data centers. But without careful consideration of resource needs when configuring cloud environments, it is dangerously easy to over-spend without being aware of it. With budget efficiency at the top of mind, our optimization experts will interrogate each workload's unique dynamics to help you choose the appropriate mix of instance types, sizes, and scaling rules to mitigate over-spend. From there, we can help you set up monitors that provide real-time budget visibility against financial performance benchmarks.

Security

Security

Misconceptions over who is responsible for what aspects of security are common among businesses planning a move to the public cloud. Public cloud providers are typically only responsible for securing the underlying hardware and network infrastructure, while businesses retain the responsibility to manage access credentials and secure their application stack. While it may seem simple enough, the specific cut-offs can still confuse. We help our customers understand the shared responsibility model and ensure their application environments are secure at all levels.

Big Data and IoT

Big Data & IoT

We are no strangers to architecting solutions that support extensive data sets in the cloud from our combined experience in the medical device, energy, and genomics domains. We’ve got ninja tricks up our sleeves that make the job of managing large data sets across application environments faster, easier, and reliably consistent. Our customers routinely achieve significant productivity boosts in their development and testing cycles after we’ve helped them calibrate their approach to data. We may not be data scientists, be we can help enable yours.

Talent Sourcing

Talent Sourcing

Finding people with the right combination of experience, technical proficiencies, and mindset to build successful digital delivery teams has never been more challenging. Decades of consulting experience have sharpened our eyes for talent in various disciplines, from Project Managers and Scrum Masters to DevOps, Full-stack, UX, and Test Automation engineers. The partners at Silvr also maintain relationships with an extensive global network of extraordinary independents that we’ve collected along the way. Send us your open reqs, and we’ll get to work finding the right talent for you. With a Silvr stamp, we’re confident you will enjoy their company on your project.
