CloudByte was proud to join in the ‘journey to the cloud’ in the new innovator pavilion at VMWorld this year. A tiring but exhilarating week was filled with demonstrations of ElastiStor and discussions with customers, service providers and partners alike.
The week kicked off with the exciting announcement of the CloudByte Channel Partner program which will help our partners to maximize revenue and profitable growth potential through the provision of joint marketing and selling efforts. Take the leap with us to the future of storage – it really is here today!
Of particular interest in the discussions was the way in which ElastiStor allows service providers to offer new services and enterprise IT teams to drastically lower their storage costs. The resulting cost-effective scalability and guaranteed application performance within a shared storage platform is what cloud and virtualized customers came looking for.
Take a look behind the scenes and experience it with us:
From the clichéd founder’s garage to a brand new 6000 square-foot R&D facility in India, it has been an exhilarating ride for all of us at CloudByte. Along the way, we’ve shifted our headquarters to the US, raised a couple of rounds of funding, won prestigious international awards, hired our new CEO and most importantly, secured critical customer and partner wins!
Fittingly, our expanded R&D office was inaugurated today by Ravi Gururaj, chairman of the NASSCOM product council and a cheerleader for our disruptive technology and Shubha Ramnath, director of IT services, Citrix, an early adopter of CloudByte ElastiStor.
Our engineering team has now doubled to 50 employees and I can proudly claim that they will be scripting the future of storage from this new office. In addition to expanded seating space, the new office also includes dedicated lab environments for remote testing and use by our customers and partners. We’re also in the process of setting up a similar lab in our US office, for faster access to our North American customers.
In his welcome address to our new employees, Ravi Gururaj said “You are joining a terrific, passionate, young at heart, innovative team. I have enjoyed watching them from the sidelines growing from strength to strength over the past 2 years. Rest assured this will be a very fun and hopefully very rewarding role for all of you!” Well, we couldn’t have articulated it better.
I welcome all CloudByte stakeholders and well-wishers to join me in raising a toast to our new growth phase!
