DocXellent Managed Cloud

GxP Compliant Cloud Services for Highly Regulated Industries

Highly regulated companies are often restricted by legacy systems and technologies that make data transparency difficult and inefficient. Additionally, the burden of regulatory compliance requires increased IT resources to update your applications and systems accordingly. As these expenses increase, it becomes harder to create the business efficiency and agility necessary to increase your competitiveness and tap into potential revenue.

DocXellent, in partnership with AWS, provides a fully compliant GxP and FDA 21 CFR Part 11 cloud solution that ensures data integrity in an audit-ready environment. The DocXellent Managed Cloud (DMC) is the collection of people, competencies, and process controls provided by DocXellent that enables you to achieve well-architected, reliable, secure, durable, and compliant Cloud frameworks that promote business operations and growth.

Your Mission-Critical Data is Secure in the Cloud

Your mission-critical data is stored in a controlled environment that is always available and always audit-ready. The DMC provides multiple redundant layers of security, tools, and services to protect the Cloud platform, keeping your data ultra-secure. Data in the cloud is encrypted and we employ 24x7x365 Anti-Intrusion defenses and log monitoring to keep hackers out and detect any anomalies.

Our Cyber/Information Security Program (C/ISP) is constantly evolving to meet the changing threat landscape and to align with current best practices. AWS provides among the most well-protected and well-defended environments in the industry, with security built into every layer of its infrastructure. AWS environments are continuously audited, with certifications from accreditation bodies across the globe.

What You Get with DocXellent Managed Cloud Services



  • What is a managed cloud service?
    • A managed cloud service refers to the outsourcing of daily IT management for cloud-based services and technical support to third party resources who specialize in the maintenance of cloud environments.
  • What is a managed cloud services provider?
    • A managed cloud services provider manages not only the customers’ computing, storage, networks, and operating systems, but also the complex tools and application stacks that run on top of that infrastructure.
  • Is my data safe in the Cloud?
    • Absolutely! Consider the following in regard to the capabilities of DocXellent and our partner AWS vs. a typical organization:
      • AWS hires the very best security professionals in the world and invests millions in keeping their data centers protected, continuously upgrading their defenses even before new threats become known, and in general, being obsessively proactive about keeping in front of emerging threats. AWS continually tests its infrastructure; the results are summarized in compliance reports available to every customer through their Archive portal.
      • All traffic inside AWS is encrypted, all data stores and compute instance volumes can (and should) be encrypted, and access can be restricted to encrypted VPN traffic only.
      • When configured properly, every activity, every request, every configuration modification is logged, and virtually everything that happens can be monitored; alerts can be configured to be triggered based on standard events, or for any set of custom metrics as desired.
      • AWS allows users to define, enforce, and manage user access policies; DocXellent’s access management procedures are extremely restrictive and adhere to best practices including MFA, training requirements before granting access, and applying the principle of least privilege.
  • What are my cloud environment options?
    • When establishing your own isolated and segregated Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) within the DMC, you can specify in which region to base the VPC, with ENSUR, you can choose the specifications of the server(s) in regards to RAM and CPU, disk space, how often to make backups (default is twice daily) and which region to send backups to. In regard to other applications to be hosted in the DMC, our certified solutions architects will work with you to develop a high-performing environment tailored to your specific requirements – the possibilities are endless!
  • How durable is my data in the Cloud?
    • The DMC is powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS), the undisputed leader in Cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) – AWS/DMC guarantee 99.99% uptime (not including operating system and application patches and updates), and data durability up to 99.999999999%! With DMC backup and disaster recovery procedures, all data is backed-up twice daily to another region, meaning that your data is available in at least two distinct regions at any given moment.
  • What advantages does a Cloud environment provide for disaster recovery scenarios?
    • A Cloud environment has a number of advantages over traditional on-premises data centers; however, perhaps the most important is cross-region replication of data/backups, allowing for quick recovery of your applications in the event of a failure of the datacenter. In general, it is much more likely that a local power or internet outage or other unforeseen event could take down a company’s servers/data center, as opposed to a whole redundant AWS Availability Zone/Region, meaning that accessibility to your data is much greater in the AWS cloud than a typical company’s servers/data center. Additionally, the DMC allows for relatively painless file-level backups for up to 14 days in case an important file has been accidentally deleted or modified, incremental SQL backups with a recovery point objective of 15 minutes, twice daily full backups, and annual backup and disaster recovery testing – all these disaster recovery benefits without having to involve your IT personnel!
