2018 has come to an end. What a year! Thank you to all for making 2018 spectacular and allowing us to be a part of your journey. We invite you to check out our year in review to see our top highlights!

Our major highlight of 2018 was the debut of our new brand, Mission, following the mergers of Reliam, Stratalux, and G2 Tech Group on October 10th. With the new brand came a new website (www.missioncloud.com) along with some newer managed services such as managed security and managed application performance management (APM).

We finished off the year by sponsoring AWS re:Invent in Las Vegas. It was truly wonderful to see and meet with so many of our existing customers and to talk to other participants about our managed services, professional services and cloud optimization for AWS.
