Crafty Penguins truly felt like a member of our team.

I could call Crafty Penguins at any time, and they were always available and felt like a team member. They not only supported our servers but trained me and my team on some new technologies so that we now have better dev ops as well.

Do you want just a vendor or a real partner? If you’re looking for the former, go find the lowest bid. When you ultimately are let down, then hire Crafty Penguins like you should have in the first place.

With Crafty Penguins, we started saving money immediately

Crafty Penguins helped us cut our server rack monthly rental in half. Also, our prior consultants recommended us purchasing more servers, but the assessment of Crafty Penguins showed us that we had enough space with what was already there.

We value honesty and trust of their team, which is a pretty big deal when IT is not familiar territory for anyone working in the company.

We relied on their team to be the experts, and they didn’t disappoint.

We came to Crafty Penguins when it became evident that we didn’t have a solid infrastructure to guarantee our users reliable performance and data security. We relied on their team to be the experts, and they didn’t disappoint.

They helped us build a new, reliable architecture that gives us a comfortable sense of security. We now stopped worrying about our system crashing and can concentrate on running our business.
