About

Solution Oriented LLC - Cloud - Storage - NetworksSolution Oriented, LLC (SOLORI) is an independent infrastructure consulting firm based in Birmingham, Alabama. It is founded on the principle that businesses need powerful, tailored solutions – not point products – that deliver lasting and recurring relief to pervasive IT pain points: improving holistic performance, growing costs versus shrinking budgets, and man-power versus management burden. We know that the “design elegance” surrounding successful solutions is found in the “creative middleware” and “out-of-the-box” or “big-picture” thinking necessary to tie it all together.

We have developed a consulting practice that brings the benefits of large enterprise infrastructure solutions scaled down to the small business (single-site, 10-100 users), small enterprise (multi-site, 50-500 users), and K-12 systems (multi-site, 50-500 educators) without sacrificing economy. We do this by first understanding our client’s specific needs and outlining specific solution goals and operational limitations; then we compile a targeted solution using “best-of-breed” commercial and open solutions that match the client constraints.

For the maturing virtualization space, our independently developed “Solutions Eco-System” leverages commercial and open source software coupled with commodity computing, network and virtualization solutions to provide a solid, reliable platform for our clients. We advise clients in the SMB/SME and education markets (K-12 and higher Ed) where cost and man-power effective solutions are needed critically.

This blog focuses on Eco-System components, emerging technologies and trends that are driving virtualization. SOLORI is building a list of client successes: do you want to join it? Contact me, Collin C. MacMillan, on my LinkedIn web page, or e-mail me directly at COLLIN (at) SOLORI (dot) NET.
