HISTORY.

Altus Technologies Corporation began in January, 1996. In that same year, Altus consultants were able to assist several firms in the Cleveland, Ohio area to streamline IT processes and augment technical staff. During this time, Altus became an authorized IBM business partner and evolved into a nationally-focused company – offering our data center expertise across the U.S.A. In addition to IBM, Altus data center consultants partnered with several security, networking, and software tools companies.

Over time, we have assisted Fortune 1000 companies (and above) in data center migrations, relocations & moves as well as technical project management. We also began providing our customers with systems architecture, integration and IT strategy solutions, as well as multiple data center services such as data center security and disaster avoidance.

Works with clients to analyze their IT environments and map them into organized architectural frameworks as part of complex infrastructure projects.

Andrew Clark of Altus Technologies analyzes IT environments as part of the services he renders clients as one of Altus' data center consultants.

Andrew worked for over two decades at IBM, where his ability to see how all the technologies work and potentially fit together led IBM to tap him as one of their first Network Engineers. He designed and implemented both network and network security for many large IT networks, but his deep knowledge of distributed systems, mainframes, database, and middleware in addition to networks and security led him to become an overall IT Architect.

For 22 years (the last 15 of which have been with Altus) Andrew has specialized in large, complex IT projects – particularly data center migrations, moves or mergers, and other major infrastructure adjustments. His abilities to analyze all the different technologies involved, to map their path to the desired end state, and to troubleshoot difficult cross-platform problems has made him the resourceful data center consultant that our clients always want to keep on-call.
