Sun Hydraulics, a subsidiary of Helios Technologies, is a Sarasota-based leading designer and manufacturer of high-performance screw-in hydraulic cartridge valves and manifolds that control the force, speed and motion as integral components in fluid power systems.
They have a global presence, with offices in the US, Europe, Asia, and the Pacific and distribution partners spread across the world.
Sun wanted to extend its global presence while increasing their experience’s accessibility, efficiency, and scalability for their distributors and partners.
Since opening their doors in 1970, Sun Hydraulics operated within the confines of a bare metal infrastructure - housed onsite in their Sarasota headquarters. They faced the typical risks and challenges of a traditional physical infrastructure - heavy time and maintenance requirements, scalability issues, high downtime and increased latency due to their geographic location.
They wanted to be able to better support their global partners and desired the speed, security, reliability, and real-time flexibility that the Atlas Cloud offered… so we got to work.
