Pythian’s staff have been instrumental in helping us architect and operate the Beats Music service. They’re immediately and impressively responsive whenever needed, which isn’t often because most times concerns have been proactively identified and resolved prior to degradation. Tomas and Alex as single points of contact have helped us shape concerns without having to manage large teams, and I sleep much better at night knowing our core database and Hadoop systems are in very capable hands.quotation marks

They were able to pull all that in, organize it and point out what we were missing. They really helped us out a lot. quotation marks
