CompleteCloud Vs. GCC High

CompleteCloud Vs. GCC High

When it was time for one of our DoD subcontractor clients to upgrade their technology to meet CMMC compliance, they knew they had an important decision to make. As a company that provides high technology engineering services to the US Army, US Air Force, USMC, US Navy, and the Australian Defense Force, meeting cybersecurity standards was crucial to winning DoD contracts and maintaining a competitive advantage.



The client received bids for our CompleteCloud Platform and Microsoft 365’s GCC High. Almost immediately upon comparison, the choice was clear.

Microsoft GCC High licensing would cost nearly $90,000 annually, not including implementation costs. They were already spending $117,000 a year and GCC High would be an additional expense, bringing their annual IT budget to over $200,000.

CompleteCloud on the other hand, would replace their entire IT infrastructure, eliminating their prior expenses, for a total annual investment of $82,000.

In other words, CompleteCloud would cut IT expenses by nearly 60% annually.

The Real Difference

Most importantly, GCC High offers just a tiny slice of the pie that CompleteCloud’s all-inclusive, DoD-friendly platform includes. While GCC High only includes Microsoft 365 Licensing, CompleteCloud includes that plus an entire IT infrastructure.

For this clients’ unique needs, the primary benefits of CompleteCloud included:


  • All-inclusive platform
  • Competitive price point
  • Meets DoD technical requirements
  • Future-proofing solution
  • Turn-key migrations
  • 24/7 technical support
  • US or ITAR compliance support


Specialty Matters

Unlike GCC High’s large enterprise focus, CompleteCloud specializes in helping small to mid-sized companies become more competitive through strategic IT. We believe the philosophy of exceptional care at an affordable price and provide customers with the opportunity to refresh their technology, increase capability, and improve their competitive situation with no capital cost.
