We Are Bee VM
Full Service Guaranteed
Yeah, full service! Some companies claim to manage your Cloud-based assets. But they don’t, not in any meaningful way. Bee VM does log analysis. We do performance monitoring. We can provide a security dashboard. Our automation does more than babysit your servers, it provides system administration services, set up by real system administrators with decades of experience. Our competition can’t make the same claim.
Why Choose Us?
Not only does Bee VM have a wealth of real world system administration experience, our automation skills and Agile methodology allow us to adapt quickly to client needs. Automation means we do things once, we do it smarter than our competition, and you reap the benefits. Agile means that we react quickly to new market demands. And as a provider that embraces Open Source, our services are far more realistic in both price and scope than our competition.

Most Cloud providers prefer to offer a standard suite of services, on an ‘as-is’ basis. They provide the palette and their clients paint whatever they like.
When it comes to support, most Cloud providers prefer to deal with the nuts and bolts of the infrastructure rather than whatever software is installed upon it. However clients often ask for a deeper level of support. Security, performance, and general system administration concerns are common queries.
The Cloud provider could ask their clients to turn to the current generation of partial-service administration companies. However they offer very few options in terms of security and performance monitoring, and often rely heavily on manual processes that cost their clients more time and money.
Or, the Cloud provider could partner with a full-service Cloud administration company… Bee VM. This will allow both the provider and their clients to harness the power of their platform

Bee VM builds automated rollout, monitoring, and maintenance scripts customized for the operating systems and hypervisors used by the Cloud provider.
We establish performance standards specific to the various tiers offered by the Cloud provider, so as to give accurate baselines and recommendations to clients.
Bee VM creates custom status, security, and performance dashboards that can integrate with the Cloud provider’s current existing reporting tools.
We can synchronize with the Cloud provider’s support system, taking direct handoffs of issues upon receiving the client’s consent to use Bee VM’s services.
All of this in addition to serving our shared clients’ day-to-day Cloud administration needs.
Bee VM has a simple philosophy: If you can demonstrate that you can do the job and work with the rest of our team, there should be no barriers.
Experience is great… if skills and teamwork go hand in hand with that experience.
Certifications are great… if actual knowledge is on display, rather than passing by wrote memorization.
At Bee VM, we will test the hard and soft skills of our interviewees during the interview process. The results of those tests are all that matters. This means that a skilled hobbiest of 10 years could, in theory, beat out an industry professional who has just coasted along for 10 years. A university graduate who has thrown themselves into automation could beat out someone with a dozen certifications.
In short, we hire people with the best skills, not people with the best laurels.
