AxisOps was founded in 2013 to take a modern DevOps orientated approach to IT.
From 2001 until AxisOps was formed the team operated as separate companies: The Network Factory, a sysadmin company for web-based businesses requiring platform development, hosting and Internet and network services; Firestone IT, an IT support company providing on premises IT support for SME’s. From 2001 to 2013 we acquired small strategic companies and technology to enhance our portfolio.
In 2013 attitudes shifted. Web-based businesses became more aware of the need for compliance, security and the integrity of their platforms, whilst the IT departments of traditional organisations were embracing the cloud and seeing the benefits of running parts of their infrastructure in the cloud and in data centres.
It was clear to us that we would be able to apply a unified approach to meet all IT needs. With new emerging technologies and automation languages we were able to unify our vision of automated IT infrastructure and digital workloads defined in code for any business.
A new enabling technology, Docker, was key to achieving our vision.
Docker, along with automation languages and microservice based architecture, started emerging as a better way to build, test and deploy IT systems and digital workloads.
By 2016 we had built an end-to-end container orchestration platform, and we had consulted for dozens of organisations and ‘lifted and shifted’ our customer’s infrastructure and digital workloads to a modern containerised environments.
By 2018 we had a full complement of offerings for SMEs wishing to ‘lift and shift’ their Windows infrastructure, including virtual desktops, into the cloud or regional data centres.
By 2019 we had developed a full observability stack, giving customer’s true insight and cost efficiencies for their infrastructure and digital workloads.
Today, whether it’s automating a simple web application, or providing a full software defined network, whether in the cloud or on premises, we continue to excel in consultancy and advice and building and supporting our customer’s infrastructure and digital workloads.
