As our business began to ramp up we needed to build a highly secure Cloud Infrastructure to service a number of financial institutions. After meeting to discuss our goals, firstblox recommended a clear approach to laying our cloud foundation and building our architecture. They then engineered solutions that saved us countless time, money, and effort. They’re a great fit if you’re looking for solid skills and experience working in the AWS Cloud. I highly recommended them if you’re starting or scaling a product company.
Partner - Deloitte
At Eclair, we were very fortunate to have Lorcan as our head of cloud engineering as he founded firstblox. His leadership in the design and engineering of the Eve product architecture and cloud platform cannot be understated. He has been instrumental in us being able to establish a fully scalable and robust cloud-based architecture that serves our clients all over the world. I can't recommend his skills, knowledge, and experience highly enough. If you're starting or running a technology company, look no further!
CTO - Courtsdesk
Work commenced promptly and was carried out in the most professional manner, being fully transparent with regular updates and detailed documentation of all decisions and deliverables maintained. The team really went above and beyond, meeting every one of our requirements and more. The infrastructure-as-code is clean and carefully crafted and since the handover, which itself was meticulously planned and documented, we have found it remarkably easy to take ownership of what it quite a large and sophisticated platform. As a small start-up with a limited budget, huge demands on our human resources, and no dedicated in-house cloud specialist, taking on any significant infrastructure project is daunting. Firstblox made it easy. We will have no hesitation about calling on them again in the future.
Product Owner - Mosaic
The infrastructure assessment process was seamless and extremely light touch from start to finish. We’re now confident in our application stack as we prepare to launch and we also have a clear roadmap of enhancements for the coming months. The knowledge and experience detailed in the report will stand to us as we scale and grow. I’d have no hesitation in recommending this service.
Director - Prolink
We worked with firstblox to create a new quotations calculator product for the international market using serverless technologies. The team recommended and implemented solutions that immediately resonated with our approach to business. It’s great, we pay very little in operational costs and the solution is exactly what we needed to scale and grow the product on a global basis.
