Prominic.NET is an authorized HCL Cloud Partner based in the United States, providing enterprise-grade private cloud hosting for organizations worldwide. Unlike the major public cloud providers, we focus on dedicated, private-cloud environments whenever possible, with an emphasis on security and privacy.
We Know Collaboration
For over 20 years, Prominic has been providing enterprise-grade cloud hosting for custom Domino applications, email, Sametime, and now Connections at data centers in North America fully owned and controlled by us.
We intimately understand the hardware and cloud resources needed to deliver smooth and fast performance. We know how to secure your environment properly, how to protect it from data loss, the configuration and administration best practices to implement, and how to troubleshoot when something goes “bump.” We also have an incredibly deep relationship with HCL, both to support them and provide front-line feedback as well as to advocate for you.
We Respect Your Data Privacy
We host our customers’ dedicated Domino environments in their own private cloud, in a way that respects and honors our customers’ data ownership and need for confidentiality. Unlike some other big cloud providers, we’re not mining your data to serve you ads or sell to third parties.
Your mail isn’t on a shared, multi-tenant service like IBM SmartCloud Notes. Your Domino apps are under your full control, with no restrictions on what you can run, what you create, and what external systems and programs you need to integrate with.
We are not powered by IBM Softlayer, AWS, Google Cloud, Azure, or any other public cloud provider. We operate on our own platform in our own data centers. All of our customers’ (and their customers’) data is hosted by us directly but controlled by them.
We also have a dedicated compliance officer who trains our staff on best practices, and we undergo (and pass) an annual SSAE-18 SOC 2 Type 2 audit.
This means that your data is in a stable and secure environment with a provider that provides one thing: high-quality cloud hosting and server management. We don’t mine your data nor snoop on your code; we respect you and the privacy of your data, and we care about your business.
We Own Our Data Centers
Prominic has invested a considerable amount of time and passion into building our own data center infrastructure to support our clients. This is the cornerstone of our commitment to security and privacy.
First and foremost, this means we are flexible and responsive to the unique and ever-changing technical needs of our customers. Also, because we operate as a lean and flat organization, we don’t have to go through layers of management bureaucracy to get something updated or changed for you. If something needs to be done and we mutually agree on the plan, we do it.
We don’t have to deal with Softlayer or AWS or some other third-party hosting company if we need to fix something or take a look at a system to improve performance. We also know exactly where your data is located in any of our data centers, providing accountability and peace-of-mind.
An Integral Part of the Domino Community
We have been very actively involved in the Domino community since our humble beginning on the campus of The University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in 1998. Our team has served on boards of OpenNTF and the Penumbra Group and continue to be involved in all things Domino. We provide hosting for several Domino user groups, conferences (CollabSphere, Engage), open-source associations, HCL Masters and more.
Why is that important? Because we know the HCL Domino ecosystem very well and we can not only recommend appropriate solutions developed by others in our field, but also refer you to the exact right people as needed. We’re all-in with HCL and the Iris/Lotus/IBM/HCL suite of collaboration solutions.
Making the Switch from IBM SmartCloud Notes and IBM Connections Cloud
Prominic is currently the only HCL Authorized Cloud Provider in North America for Domino, Volt, Sametime, and Connections, and will continue to provide services to customers worldwide.
We’re currently focused on providing assistance in migrating companies from IBM’s cloud to ours, and we’re working closely with customers, HCL, and the IBM offboarding team.
If you need to migrate your Notes/Verse mail, Domino applications, or Connections off IBM’s cloud by the July 2020 deadline, contact us as soon as possible. Just shoot us an email at Sales@Prominic.NET or give us a call at +1.217.356.2888. We are always happy to hear from those passionate about HCL Domino, Sametime, Connections, and related products, and if there is something you need help with, we’re happy to assist.
