Brad Hokamp Interview with Light Reading

We were recently approached by Light Reading, one of the most widely read IT publications in the industry, to do an interview on Layered Tech’s approach to cloud computing services.  Naturally, we obliged, and our president, Brad Hokamp, sat down with Light Reading’s editor, Phil Harvey, to discuss the results our clients are achieving with our managed compliant cloud solutions:

  • Control costs more effectively – with a cloud environment, customers can build/repurpose infrastructure towards normal loads of traffic and then use cloud for peak capacity management
  • Drive revenue growth and increase agility as a company – allows companies to bring on their customers more rapidly, load applications quicker, etc.
  • Innovate and launch products much faster – leading to faster return on investments

Security and compliance concerns have often prohibited businesses from migrating to the cloud, but a private cloud or even hybrid/community cloud architecture of the kind that Layered Tech regularly deploys for its clients has demonstrated time and again that data and transactions can be so secure as to meet even PCI DSS strict requirements.

The full interview is available as an audio podcast at and as a slide presentation summary on
