“Cloudnexa helped us with our AWS environment to create a dynamic web application that can be accessed from anywhere! We have strict HIPAA requirements we have to comply to which was a main concern of ours in moving to the cloud. However Cloudnexa’s knowledge of creating and managing HIPAA compliant workloads in the cloud gave us the assurance we needed! AWS is the perfect platform for us and Cloudnexa helped us get there!” Raj R. Kumar - Director of BD
