Here's what industry is saying about CAC:


"The attention, support, and 24x7 hosting services we received from CAC allowed us to make our systems decisions quickly and confidently while adhering to product development schedules."

Senior Software Development Manager

Securing networks and physical facilities requires significant processing power. "You cannot have people staring at cameras or poring over computer screens. The process needs to be automated to detect telling patterns, and the data needs to be archived so that histories can be tracked. Because of the computational power required to accomplish this, cluster architecture is a natural infrastructure. You need many processors, and you need them to be cost effective."

Vice President

"CAC's leadership in using large, multimode .NET and Web Services clusters is unmatched."

EVP of Development

"The set-up of the cluster was very successful. Nobody expected us to be that fast … Thank you, especially for the support that CAC gave us in Munich."

Konrad Starkmann, Technical Project Leader

"What I learned about on-line education technologies working as a student at CAC was pivotal in developing the skills I used to pioneer the first versions of the Blackboard Learning System. Six undergraduates and I founded CourseInfo while at Cornell which later merged to form Blackboard, a leading provider of enterprise software applications for education with over $100 million annual revenues."

Daniel Cane, Vice President R&D, Co-Founder
