Pawel Polok, General Manager
It only feels like yesterday when the roads were full of traffic, the offices were bustling with activity, and the world was going on as usual. But everything has changed significantly since the pandemic hit. The health and economic impacts of COVID-19 have disrupted business functions globally, forcing organisations to change their workflow approach rapidly. Today, as they face an imperative need to reinvent their operations, organisations are turning to managed services to achieve a faster and more effective transition to the new normal.
In this backdrop, the company that is empowering businesses to sail unhindered through the uncharted waters of the pandemic is Red Stack Poland, a specialist in managed IT services.
With offices located in Warsaw and Krakow, Poland, Red Stack enables businesses to streamline and enhance their IT operations by introducing them to the best IT and cloud technologies in the market. From building cloud-based solutions and creating a high availability environment for tuning performance and optimising licensing resources, the company caters to its clients’ every IT need while also bringing extensive technological, organisational, and market experience.
The Path towards Excellence
Red Stack Poland’s journey in the IT industry began as a subsidiary of Red Stack Tech LLC (currently Data Intensity LLC), when the Polish team had been delivering services to both international, as well as local customers. During the acquisition of Red Stack Tech LLC, Pawel Polok, a local sales director, made a mutually beneficial offer to take the Polish subsidiary of the company independent. As a part of the deal, Red Stack Poland took over all contracts in Poland, as well as the key members of original tech team. Since then, Red Stack Poland has been re-establishing its IT dominance in the region.
With competitive pricing and client-friendly service delivery (legal and cultural compatibility, geographical closeness, and a large pool of IT professionals, among others), Red Stack Poland is the one-stop-shop for companies looking for proven providers of IT managed services. The seasoned engineers and technicians of the company possess substantial international experience and can conduct all deployment and maintenance tasks within quick timelines. Further, owing to this focused expertise and the ability to efficiently align customer needs with their ability to scale, Red Stack Poland always offers unique value to its clients.
The New Normal of Remote Working
“Today, we are witnessing a significant rise in demand for remotely delivered IT services in the face of the pandemic,” says Pawel Polok, general manager of Red Stack Poland.
As client demand increases, we will keep enhancing our managed services portfolio, facilitating specialised and high-quality remote database and infrastructure managed services
As organisations are under increased pressure to resolve old as well as new issues—which are being exacerbated more by the pandemic—they are seeking trained and highly-skilled professionals that can provide cost-effective solutions. This is where Red Stack Poland comes in, offering an unparalleled return on investment. The company combines useful functionalities into a single package, which can be scaled and customised according to client requirements.
The One-Stop-Shop for Oracle Solutions
For companies seeking top-shelf performance, superior scalability, and unparalleled reliability in their on-premise and cloud infrastructures, Oracle has become the go-to technology developer. Unlike most tech firms dealing in infrastructure-as-a-service, Oracle has become a partner of choice for enterprises as it grants complete control to the users, whether it is virtualisation or management of servers, storage, and data centres. Besides, Oracle’s next-generation solutions deliver reliable performance that supports real-time processing, massive datasets, and high input/output operations per second (IOPS).
As one of Oracle’s leading partners in engineered systems-based solutions, Red Stack Poland brings top-tier performance to its clients. The company, thus, helps them leverage the superior power of Oracle’s next-gen cloud infrastructure and run their cloud-native IT workloads with simplicity and ease. By combining Oracle’s autonomous services, integrated security, and serverless compute capabilities, Red Stack Poland enables its clients to be at the cutting-edge of IT. The company assumes responsibility for maintaining part or all of the clients’ Oracle environment, providing remote services 24 hours a day. The cost of service offered by the company with its in-house or body leasing model proves to be extremely effective compared to the value delivered by dedicated IT team recruited by the end user in traditional fashion—an approach that often comes short on competencies, flexibility or scalability.
No matter how challenging the task, Red Stack Poland is a seasoned expert when it comes to Oracle implementations. The company offers a comprehensive suite of capabilities, including building Oracle Cloud-based solutions, creating high availability environments, tuning performance, optimising Oracle licensing resources, and much more. Whether it is designing new environments and consolidating on-prem and cloud or migrating to new hardware platforms and operating systems, the company is a one-stop-shop for Oracle-based services. Furthermore, the company shares responsibility for maintaining all of the clients’ IT environment, freeing their IT workforce from current tasks, and enabling them to focus on forward-looking development projects.
A case in point is when Red Stack Poland helped a public institution consolidate their siloed databases into a unified, mission-critical environment using Oracle Exadata engineered systems. Thus, the client was able to tighten their IT infrastructure and enhance the functionalities of the connected devices in the critical patient environment. This is but one of several success stories where Red Stack has enabled its clients to bring ease and simplicity into their IT operations.
The company also proved its superior value delivery through its partnership with an operator of a deep-sea container terminal. During the period of co-operation, the customer had multiplied the amount of annual cargo several times. However, their IT infrastructure could not keep up with the business scale-up. That was when they decided to seek the help of Red Stack Poland. The company quickly augmented its IT infrastructure, transforming it to support all business levels while maintaining high system availability.

Combining Agility with Expertise
“Our uniqueness attributes to our success; as a company derived from a larger enterprise, Red Stack Poland is a symbiosis of startup agility and established expertise,” says Polok. Along with its original team with extensive experience in managing large infrastructures, the company focuses on acquiring new and diverse talent. According to Polok, many talented IT engineers are emerging from the Polish education system every year. At the same time, the company is open to flex hire of experts in legacy technologies, who prefer to work part time in their pre-retirement years. These experienced specialists, after 25+ years of work in enterprise, typically enjoy a lot of fresh challenge of work in the humming environment of a young and agile company. Red Stack Poland is looking forward to welcoming such candidates and expanding its workforce, allowing them to grow and cultivate their interests.
Thus, after proving its excellence and effectiveness, Red Stack Poland has now become a prominent player in the European IT managed services space. The company is investing in augmenting its cloud solutions, focusing on multi-cloud migrations and deployments geared towards remote work. At the same time, Red Stack will also expand its legacy practices, helping customers maintain their HP-UX/ AIX/Solaris environments or migrate to new cloud platforms. “As client demand increases, we will keep enhancing our managed services portfolio, facilitating specialised and high-quality remote database and infrastructure managed services,” concludes Polok.
