Does FogOps® replace my own DevOps Team?
No. FogOps® Team works with your team. Depending on the engagement, we will provide a team lead and 3-5 engineers to add depth and breadth to your own team.
Will I get the same person when I reach out to Foghorn for support?
Yes. Unique to our FogOps® Team product is your dedicated, slack enabled ChatOps team. Your Foghorn accelerators knows your business history, requirements and plans for growth. We find peace of mind enhancing approach preferable to “What is your company ID?” support that has become status quo in our industry.

Your dedicated FogOps® Team will be populated with consultants who have deep experience in your vertical, and 100% of their efforts are brought into greater focus through the lens of compliance.

From 6 months to 10 years, our team can be deployed like Navy Seals on a per project manner, or become trusted Generals who guide your organization through the sometimes foggy, yet ever evolving and exiting power of the Cloud. Many of our clients find that our fees are offset by the cost savings realized from optimising their cloud design, and automating previously manual processes.

Is FogOps® an automated Analytics Platform? Are you similar to CloudHealth, Cloudability, or CloudCheckr?
FogOps® is not an automated analytics platform. FogOps® has partnered with CloudHealth to provide this service. FogOps® Team is a dedicated crew of engineers focused on building and scaling your cloud infrastructure using best in class experts, DevOps and SRE principals.
If I already have AWS Enterprise Support and/or an AWS TAM, can I still benefit from FogOps®?
Yes! AWS Enterprise support is immensely valuable, and the TAMs are very knowledgeable, however by policy AWS support only advises customers on their environments. FogOps® both advises and implements that advice; hands on keyboard.
If I already have a DevOps, SRE, or Cloud Engineering team, can I still benefit from FogOps®?
Yes! For our larger customers, we are a small piece of their bigger cloud, DevOps and SRE engineering teams, bringing additional bandwidth on demand, specific subject matter expertise, and the benefit of FogSource® and other FogOps® features to accelerate the velocity of their cloud initiatives. For smaller customers, we provide leadership to in-house resources, allowing your team to grow and learn from the best, while providing the manpower you need now, while you grow your team to meet your goals.
Is my FogOps® available 24/7?
No. FogOps® is delivered doing our extended business hours (6am-6pm PST). We are not a NOC, our team takes pride in working with your team to use IaC, automation and best practices that creates an environment that prevents calls to emergency support.
