Virteva Cloud Series Kickoff

Virteva invites you to join us at our Minneapolis headquarters on January 28 for the first of our Virteva Cloud Series seminars, where we’ll take an in depth look at a recent high profile Virteva-led Microsoft Azure deployment.

Virteva conducted an ambitious project initiative that saw the complete creation and deployment of a new web hosting platform for GCI (, built and run entirely on Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform integrating both Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) capabilities.

Event Details:

Virteva Cloud Series: Thursday, Jan. 28, 2016
Registration: 7:30 a.m.
Presentation: 8:00 to 9:00 a.m.
Q & A: 9:00 to 9:30 a.m.

What you’ll learn:

  • Speed: GCI required a rapid cloud-based implementation of a web hosting platform that had a timing goal far more ambitious than any prior efforts they had undertaken.
  • Flexibility: Taking advantage of Azure’s broad array of features and services, we’ll showcase how Virteva was able to integrate a mixture of IaaS & PaaS elements.
  • Efficiency: Operating on a “pay-as-you-go” model, Virteva was able to design and configure the GCI Azure environment to operate at peak efficiency throughout continuous fluctuations in demand on the web platform.
