You may have already seen the article that The Next Platform recently published about us, but if you haven’t, take a moment to read it. We are flattered to be recognized by The Next Platform folks. They are forward-thinking and have a long and respected history of covering big compute.
It has not always been easy, but we’ve gone from an $8,000 credit card bill to a self-sustaining business with an impressive customer list across a variety of industries. As CEO Jason Stowe said, “We’ve been fortunate to have the chance to build something wonderful on its own merits, and I could not be more proud of the way we have grown.”
As great as the past has been, the future is looking even better. It is exciting to see the market begin to realize what our employees and customers have known all along: utility access to computing is a major driver of innovation and research. Cloud-based big compute has been embraced in life sciences, manufacturing, financial services, academia, pharmaceuticals, and so much more.
As big compute in the public cloud moves from a niche setup to a mainstream operation, we are excited to lead the field. It has been great watching our customers discover the value of the cloud, and we’re looking forward to helping even more organizations do the same.
