Client Testimonial: “Jelecos has been a great partner during our migration from our private cloud provider to AWS. The Jelecos team has been highly engaged in the process throughout, providing a planned timeline outlining the migration approach, and then partnering with our technical team to complete the migrations to AWS as planned. There were challenges along the way, but the Jelecos team partnered with our technical team to overcome those challenges and complete the migrations as anticipated. We continue to partner with Jelecos to right-size and optimize our AWS environment, and value the partnership with the Jelecos team.” – Jim Navin, Gavilon CIO
