Peregrine Energy Group delivers energy data analysis reports to customers through cloud-based applications hosted by Amazon Web Services (AWS), and the applications integrate with a database server hosted by a third-party data center. As the internal systems administrator—who monitored and managed both the application and database infrastructures—planned to depart, Peregrine found itself needing another way to ensure the two cloud environments would continue delivering reliable energy analysis to customers.
Sam Gechter, Vice President of Product Management and Operations for Peregrine Energy Group, decided this was the perfect opportunity to turn to an outsource partner to manage and monitor the two cloud environments. In addition to eliminating the cost of hiring and employing a full-time systems administrator, Gechter also hoped to more efficiently manage the cloud environments.
“Mission is a great cloud computing partner—we rely on them to understand how to correctly configure various AWS components such as subnets and security groups. They also manage our backups and are helping to steer us onto the right the path for automating many AWS processes.”

To find a reliable cloud management and monitoring partner, Gechter considered multiple firms but chose the partner introduced by AWS: Mission. In addition to demonstrating expertise in managing and monitoring cloud environments, Mission distinguished itself from the other firms in consideration. Mission’s Managed DevOps specifically offers the flexibility to manage and monitor cloud infrastructures hosted not only by AWS, but also by other third-party hosted environments. That’s exactly what Peregrine needed.
The Mission partnership has generated several key benefits for Peregrine:
- Ensures optimal performance of cloud architectures supporting applications and databases delivering services to customers.
- Eliminates the salary and benefits cost of hiring an internal systems administrator.
- Provides access to experts who can advise on cloud computing best practices that further optimize application and database performance.
- Determines the exact compute resources required for each server instance that’s needed during the software development, test and production lifecycle.
