Three Organizational Benefits On Having A Multi-Cloud Solutions

In recent years, Multi-Cloud Solutions became an increasingly popular approach among organizations.  The question remains whether a Multi-Cloud Approach or a Single-Cloud Vendor is recommended.  While there is no true correct answer to that question past subjective preference, we would like to highlight some strengths of Multi-Cloud solutions.

At the heart of every Cloud Services procurement is a common goal: data security.  As businesses venture into Cloud, the concern with their Cloud vendor’s security remains.  There have been instances in the past where cloud vendors have been hacked and/or organizations have lost access to their data due to a fault in local servers.  As a result organizations have adapted Multi-Cloud strategies.  Multi-cloud solutions offer data redundancy, meaning you can copy your data in multiple platforms.  With your data preserved in multiple platforms, the chances of loss in data has been reduced which prevents potentially major financial repercussions for organizations.

To add on, having a Multi-cloud solutions approach can prevent vendor lock-in.  Oftentimes, when a vendor becomes an organization’s exclusive provider for a given service, it becomes difficult to migrate one’s data into a competitor’s platform.  With a multi-cloud solution configured in your platforms, you can integrate features of a cloud platform such as Microsoft Azure into your experience with Amazon Web Services.  Without the proper Multi-cloud configurations, it will become extremely difficult and time consuming to integrate both platforms and utilize different features of different platforms.

Cost-effectiveness is an added benefit of having a Multi-cloud solutions approach.  If you rely on one sole vendor, it will become difficult to migrate your data to a competitor if their pricing becomes too pricey for your budget.  If you have multiple cloud solutions configured with your organization’s data and security infrastructure, you can navigate among them if one becomes too expensive.  As mentioned before, your data is already copied across multiple platforms, so the reliance on an increasingly expensive sole vendor would be reduced.

To sum it up, it is important to consider a Multi-Cloud solutions approach for your organization to “not have your eggs in one basket.”  You can reduce the likelihood of data loss; avoid exceeding your budget for cloud services; and you can integrate convenient features across different platforms for your team’s use.

Compulink’s Year In Review: 2018

2018 has been a tremendous year for Compulink Technologies Inc.  For that we wanted to take this opportunity to thank our clients and partners; from the past, current, and future, for helping Compulink provide invaluable service.

Here are some of the highlights of our year here at Compulink Technologies:

Community Service:

Compulink Technologies Inc. has been committed to giving back to the community and empowering others.  Our President Rafael Arboleda has been collaborating with many nonprofit organizations and giving motivational speeches in their events.  In the events he spoke about his experiences as an entrepreneur and an immigrant of Latino descent in New York, which many in the audiences he engages can relate to.  Rafael has volunteered to speak at an event in INQMC to an audience of Latino-owned small businesses and to an audience of Latino youth from low-income neighborhoods in an event hosted by the nonprofit organization Juventud De Ecuatoriana.  He was also invited to speak in HispanoAmerica News as a motivational speaker.


In 2018, Compulink Technologies has also gained many recognitions and awards for our commitment to ensuring best business practices.  Very recently, the Comptroller of the City of New York has honored Compulink’s Vice President Denise Arboleda with a Certificate of Recognition to acknowledge her outstanding service to the community and government.  Additionally, Denise has been exclusively invited to the Women of the Channel Summit, an exclusive summit where prominent and rising women leaders of the tech industry are invited to collaborate, network, and grow.  Governor Andrew Cuomo has awarded President Rafael Arboleda with a Certificate of Distinction because of his “success story” as a leader of a certified Minority-Owned Business Enterprise (MBE) in New York City.

Successful Client Relations:

This year Compulink has collaborated with Cisco, an IT Industry Leader, in brokering a multi-million dollar deal with a large client.  Denise has spearheaded the small-sized Compulink team in effectively communicating with both the large manufacturer and the large client and ensuring that all parties were satisfied at the end of this deal.

While these instances do not encompass all Compulink’s accomplishments of 2018, they are exciting highlights.  Compulink’s 2018 accomplishments adds to one’s curiosity: what more can be done in 2019?  We will leave you with this teaser for our E-Store:

On that note, we wish you all a Happy holidays and a Happy New Year!  We are very excited to forging new connections while nurturing the wonderful connections we already have.  As President Rafael said in his letter: “Our most important asset is the connections we have forged and will forge in the future.”

Recognizing Effective Leadership: Denise Arboleda

Denise Arboleda, Vice President of Compulink Technologies, has recently attended the Women of the Channel (WOTC) Leadership Summit East 2018.  This event took place on December 4-5, 2018.  WOTC Leadership Summit is an exclusive event where prominent and rising women business leaders in the IT Industry are invited to network, collaborate and find professional development opportunities.  We at Compulink Technologies are proud of Denise for this honor due to her genuine, diligent efforts to become the effective business leader she is today.

It is in this environment of collaborative business engagements where Denise is at her best.  Throughout the past thirty years, Denise has helped develop Compulink Technologies from a network cabling service to a full-fledged IT Solutions provider servicing agencies in the City, State, and Federal Government.   She has helped Compulink establish partnerships with leading IT manufacturers such as Cisco, Dell, HPE, HPI, F5, etc. and manages all these business relationships diligently.

In an interview with CRN, Denise said “We offer entire solutions designed by Compulink Technologies to the customer, which most of the time incorporates multiple manufacturer products.  That is the real value of what we bring to the table.”

It is through these connections that Denise and Compulink Technologies has been able to effectively package solutions from different manufacturers for large government agencies.  For example, Denise and Compulink Technologies assisted the New York MTA in obtaining GPS capabilities for all of their buses.  With the same client, Denise collaborated with both HP and Cisco systems to develop a solution package for tracking all MTA buses in the tristate area.

It comes as no surprise that Denise Arboleda is attending the WOTC Leadership Summit where she can develop and nurture more connections.  The guests, networking events, professional development trainings, and motivational speeches can only help enhance such talent as Denise’s in the IT industry.  More than business growth, it is Denise’s genuine commitment to quality service and adding value to clients that make this event exciting news.

When we asked Denise about her thoughts on this exclusive invitation, she answered, “It is an honor and a privilege to be considered a guest among such a talented list of women leaders.  Receiving these honors don’t come with ease and there are decades of hard work the Compulink team and I put into our business engagements with the government.  But while this is a great honor, the true question lies in how we can promote more collaboration between the business and government sector.”

From Compulink Technologies, we would like to congratulate Denise on all of her accomplishments and the genuine passion she brings to the table.  She has certainly earned her spot in the WOTC Leadership Summit.
