Founded in 2017 by a group of former Microsoft engineers, Kumulus is a start-up that focuses on implementing cloud-based technologies for organizations throughout the Latin American regions. “We have two specific pillars in our company: cloud computing and data analytics. And the goal is to support businesses of any size or segment with the capabilities of a large, multinational corporation,” states Thiago Caserta, Founder and Chief Business Development Officer at Kumulus. The company, staying true to its nomenclature, maintains a team of cloud specialists that thoroughly understand legacy architecture challenges and strive to simplify the transition from on-premise environments to the cloud. Kumulus follows a DevOps-based managed cloud service model that promises effortless IT infrastructure management and real-time optimization of daily workloads for better performance. By proactively assessing a client’s existing architecture, Kumulus designs customized transformation strategies that facilitate smooth migration, with minimal downtime and improved networking security.
“We are born in the cloud, and the cloud is driven by data,” says Caserta. In accordance with the founder’s words, Kumulus leverages machine learning and artificial intelligence technologies to drive innovation in their service offerings. The company understands that technology is perpetually advancing, and organizations will always be in a state of change.

“We provide companies of different sizes and segments the next-gen managed services to strategize and architect a cloud-based IT infrastructure that possesses high scalability and performance in order to respond rapidly to their challenges” adds Caserta. And, with strong partnerships with Microsoft and AWS, Kumulus has revamped its cloud migration capabilities, while strengthening big data and analytics competencies.
To further elucidate on the company’s core competencies, Caserta shares the story of a leading bank in Brazil that reached out to Kumulus. “The client wanted to migrate their big data solution from local datacenters to a cloud-based environment,” he recalls. Banks have massive amounts of information that is continuously generated, changed, and stored. In order to better manage this data, Kumulus restructured all the unstructured, raw data within the enterprise and transformed it into actionable information that provides real-time banking updates, fraud detection, security updates, and other KPIs. The client’s environment was then migrated to Azure, Microsoft’s cloud service, owing to the vast experience team Kumulus has in that arena.
Leveraging its enthusiastic start-up culture, Kumulus is rapidly expanding to other regions of Latin America and the U.S., while proactively engaging new clients. The company is currently gaining a lot of traction in the MSP marketplace, where becoming one of Microsoft’s leading partner solidifies its cloud computing proficiencies. Regardless of Kumulus’ progressive growth in the marketplace, Caserta reassures that the company prioritizes supporting its clients in the adoption of new technologies and helping them stay relevant and competitive, readily adapting to the changing world.
