Proxios is headquartered in Richmond, Virginia and provides IT as a Service (ITaaS). As a pioneer in cloud computing beginning in 1999, we have proven knowledge and experience to move customer infrastructures to the cloud. This enables companies to focus on driving real business value from the applications that help run a business, rather than the details about the IT infrastructure.
Proxios provides a wide range of cloud services to our customers throughout the United States and Canada including telephony and collaboration, business virtual desktops, and application hosting.
