Experience. It's What Matters.
How many firms set the industry standards for containers? Five. Shadow-Soft was one of them.
Everyone claims to be experienced. But are you getting Kubernetes experts?
Shadow-Soft is a firm of 15-year award-winning Open Source technologists. We only hire experienced people (10+ years) with 100+ certifications (AWS, GCP, Azure, EKS, GKS, AKS, Red Hat, SUSE) because you can't be a guide if you haven't done the dirty work.
If you want "newbies" or "freshies", call the GSIs. If you want opinionated perspectives, call the ISVs. But if you want to know what works and what doesn't, call us. We'll show you how to get things done.
And done right.
