Infrastructure Built for Performance
Cloud Environment Overview
Our Cloud has been meticulously architected to ensure performance and reliability. The hardware stack is built leveraging fully-redundant, KVM-based cloud server solutions powered by enterprise grade hardware from Hewlett Packard Enterprise. Our cloud servers are engineered from the ground up for reliability and are backed by our 5 9’s uptime availability guarantee.
- HPE Hardware
Our cloud environment leverages enterprise grade hardware from Hewlett Packard, and features modern Intel E5 series processors, redundant RAM, Disk, and Power supplies.
- Cisco Networking
Networking equipment from Cisco ensures consistent availability and throughput. We utilize Cisco Nexus platform switches, allowing us to provide both software AND chassis redundancy.
- KVM Virtualization
Our cloud environment is powered by open source virtualization technologies. KVM allows us to provision the widest variety of virtual guests in our cloud server offering without vendor lock-in.
Our cloud server environment is fully automated, featuring fault-tolerance and failover without human intervention. Your cloud environment remains online even in the event of underlying hardware failure.
- Self-Provisioning Tools
Provision your own cloud environment directly from our customer portal. Bring additional services online, access support and monitor your cloud servers performance directly from a web interface.
The Cosmos Cloud utilizes several Data Centers to ensure stability, redundancy and reliability.
Our data center facility in Chicago, Illinois is situated within a private, secured campus built and operated by Equinix. The facility is centrally managed and offers tenant space in the private data center suite. In addition to this, the facility offers private network operations and a staging environment. Furthermore, connectivity is available to multiple Tier-1 ISP’s, ensuring consistent availability for our cloud environment and the redundancy needed to provide an enterprise-class offering.

Comprehensive Migration Services
AMDS Cosmos Engineers perform an in-depth environmental analysis, including internal network scans, documentation, and systems mapping, as part of our comprehensive cloud migration service. The findings of this environmental analysis inform our design and build engineers of any pain points in the existing setup, such as latency or throughput, and guide us as we work to architect a solution for your specific application and business needs.
Once the Design and Build phase of the migration service is complete – Cosmos Engineers work to implement the approved design and build documentation. This includes working with the customer to obtain necessary connectivity, credentials, and application license keys needed to effectively build the solution. The solution is then provisioned using our cloud orchestration system, and applications are installed locally or by enlisting the help of third party vendors.
Following an extensive environmental analysis and thorough documentation of the existing environment, Cosmos engineers set out to translate the existing infrastructure into functional cloud workload requirements. All applications, microservices, features and functionality are converted into a cloud-based architecture for the purpose of developing a migration plan. This cooperative phase of migration heavily involves the customer’s design approval.
Ensuring that your solution continues to function optimally is a key part of the comprehensive migration service offered here at Cosmos. As part of the implementation phase, our engineers will work with you to determine appropriate application and service monitoring, and will build in procedures to ensure that both your organization and our engineers can remain involved in scaling your solution as necessary. This is effectively the solution completion phase.
