Reasons to Choose Revolution Systems

Here are some quotes from current and former customers.

“Not only does Frank know how to squeeze every last bit of performance out of PostgreSQL and Linux -- he is happy to explain his tuning methods in plain English. Working with Frank not only makes your infrastructure better, it makes your people smarter. He was a great help setting up our infrastructure. Highly recommended.”

Adrian Holovaty, Founder of Everyblock.com, Soundslice, and one of the creators of Django

“Frank at RevSys provided us with excellent advice to help optimise our Django based app, which resulted in an impressive improvement in performance. Code-tuning recommendations came in an easy to digest format with ‘biggest bang for buck’ changes clearly marked. Recommend.”

O Freke, Channel 5 Broadcasting Ltd

“RevSys was able to deliver on a short time line when we needed some tuning done on our production database. Their analysis was clearly broken out in to short term, low-risk and long-term recommendations, and the instructions were straightforward and easy to follow. The results have proven to be exactly what we needed.”

Greg Dotson, CTO, www.blurb.com

“Jacob was instrumental in helping Nasuni take our Django application from design to deployment and helping us automate and scale out our service.”

Rob Mason, President & Founder Nasuni Corporation

“Working with both Frank and Jacob was pleasure. They were quick to respond to our needs, attentive to the details, and offered terrific support and knowledge sharing throughout the project. Knowing they are both leaders in their fields made collaborating with them to meet our requirements and trusting their ideas and creative solutions that much more easy. They are both really good guys to boot as well. I'd work with them again in a second.”

Kevin Fricovsky, Chief Architect of Web Strategy and Development, Broadway.com

“It's such a great pleasure working with doubleplussmart people (for instance @fwiles)”

David Ryan from Twitter

“ I've referred several clients and prospective clients to Frank. All of them have reported that Frank was a consummate professional and did excellent work in a timely fashion. I would not hesitate to recommend Frank in the future.”

Hal Pomeranz, Consultant, Deer Run Associates

“When we made the decision to standardize on Django and needed help jump starting a team coming from diverse backgrounds, we looked for the best in the field; we called RevSys. Jacob was a pleasure to work with both on the front end of the engagement as we planned it all the way through the week of onsite training and followup. I could not have been more impressed with his knowledge or his ability to impart it to our team. He is a complete professional with an honest direct approach. He puts a lot into his work and it shows. Years later, I am proud to say we have one of the best Django teams in the U.S.A.”

Darrell Golliher, Senior Director Technology, Cox Media Group Digital & Strategy

“Jacob Burch has been awesome, he has gone above and beyond on more then one occasion, and deserves a big raise :)”

Ken Cochrane CashStar.com

“ I worked with Frank at a previous employer and now team up with his Revolution Systems on all sorts of web projects. Frank is, without a doubt, one of the smartest guys I know. He's an incredibly proficient programmer, a world-class systems administrator, an open source advocate, a writer, and an all-around great guy. Anyone can write web applications, but very few really understand scalability and optimization the way Frank does. If you're working on a large-scale project, you need someone like Frank Wiles on the team. Frank is friendly, polite, and great to be around and work with. If you're looking for an all-around technology maven, it really doesn't get any better than Frank Wiles.”

Jeff Croft, rock star web designer, www.jeffcroft.com

@fwiles's talk on #pgsql at #djangocon was worth the conference costs on its own”

@veldtca from Twitter

“ I almost hate to tell people about Frank and Revolution Systems, because I'd love nothing more than to keep him all for myself. Frank is extremely knowledgeable, but just as important, he's reliable too. Unlike other 'techies' who have a habit of disappearing on you when you need them most, I know I can always count on Frank.”

Patrick Kennedy, FM Media, Inc.

“Revolution Systems' catchphrase could be, 'Keeping customers safe from themselves since 2002.'”

Graham Ullrich awarnys.com

“ I value and trust Frank's opinion on open source technology and to be a resource for ideas on projects and networking. I would not hesitate to introduce him to a client knowing full well they would be in good hands. If your projects touch on any area of his expertise you need Frank on the team.”

David White, TechLink Employment Specialists

“I must say that your Perl programming is very nice and you have done an excellent job both in terms of recommending the most appropriate solution, even though that is different than the initial proposal, educating me on the nuances, and following through without ever changing the price estimate. Very good job. I would definitely come back to you for other sendmail work in the future.”

Erik Kangas, PhD, Founder LuxSci

“Frank is, quite simply, the best of the best in the systems world. His knowledge of how servers work is second to none, and he has proven a tireless resource on virtually every technical subject as we built ResumeBucket.

He particularly excels in the server optimization/performance areas, at which I truly believe he is second to none (and being in the recruiting AND development business, I have met a lot).

Frank also excels in just overall business sense and finding the best way to do things. His personal drive and ambition for knowledge gives him the equivalent of 5 MBAs - I'm not kidding. He's an invaluable member of our team and I enjoy working with him immensely.”

Ted Hekman, Co-Founder www.resumebucket.com
