Layer 7 Data Solutions is a full life-cycle technology services company.  We help businesses resolve technical issues from layers 1 through 7.


As an unrivaled full life-cycle technology services company, Layer 7 Data Solutions has been making advanced technology simple and cost effective for the SMB and enterprise market for nearly a decade.

With experience in both the private and public IT sectors, CTO and 18-year IT veteran Rodney James started Layer 7 Data Solutions almost a decade ago as a sole proprietorship assisting small businesses with their technology needs.  After acquiring more clients than he could handle, James incorporated and hired a team of seasoned, friendly engineers who are subject matter experts in all aspects of technology and who strictly adhere to industry best practices. Layer 7 Data Solutions focuses on implementing infrastructures from the ground up, redesigning established networks, reducing operational budgets, improving the overall technology and security postures of our clientele, and successfully bringing companies to the cloud.

By identifying the crucial assets that clients must protect, the scalable technology roadmaps we are known for provide secure, fast, deliverable solutions. Having naturally expanded from satisfied customer referrals, Layer 7 Data Solutions operates with our clients as partners. Our capabilities span regulations and compliance, proficiency in LAN/WAN, cloud and security technology, and practical vendor agnostic solutions.

Whether businesses have advanced or intermediate knowledge of tech, Layer 7 Data Solutions never executes a solution and then walks away. From managed services to multi-year professional services contracts, we always deliver detailed documentation and value a thoughtful handoff process.
