Virtual Clarity ranked in the Sunday Times Lloyds SME Export Track 100.
We are delighted to announce that Virtual Clarity has been ranked 49th in the Sunday Times Lloyds SME Export Track 100.
The Sunday Times Lloyds SME Export Track 100 ranks Britain’s 100 small and medium-sized (SME) companies with the fastest-growing international sales over the latest two years. It is compiled by Fast Track and published in The Sunday Times once a year in February.
Receiving this recognition from the Sunday Times Lloyds SME Export Track 100 is a great honour, and is reflective of the great work that we do here at Virtual Clarity. We look forward to continuing to deliver amazing outcomes for our clients and partners which is what is at the root of our story of growth.
When it comes to cloud migration, businesses need to know that the endeavour they’re about to embark on is worth the time, effort and capital that is about to be committed.
At Virtual Clarity, this is one of our stand-out offerings. I’ve been with Virtual Clarity for several years, and my team is often the first on the ground when we start working with a new client. Our job is to assess the client’s migration needs, analyse what is necessary in order to achieve their goals, and present the business case to the correct people within the client firm.

I recently looked into creating a new VPC design and was thinking of how I should separate the workloads. Do I put everything in a single VPC with lots of subnets? Do I create separate VPC environments? What happens if there are lots of environments? I asked Amazon “What is the maximum limit on the number of VPCs per region?”. They came back with 1,000, and this is their recommended limit and not a hard limit. 4 years ago, back in 2013 this limit was 100, and if you required more, Amazon recommended that you create another AWS account.
Migrating to an off-prem Cloud provider makes a lot of sense because you can move away from fixed cost to a variable cost model that scales up and down according to your demand, but we find that unless managed carefully, costs can get out of control and can be higher than they need to be.
