The world’s best clouds run on OnApp – and it was fantastic to meet so many OnApp cloud providers at our Customer Advisory Board this week, at WHD in Germany.
The way the OnApp cloud platform has developed and grown has always been heavily influenced by our customers. The Customer Advisory Board, or CAB, is an opportunity for our customers to spend time with our account teams, technical teams and management to discuss our product roadmap, exchange ideas and help us determine the future direction of OnApp products and services.
There was a great vibe in the room, and what was particularly noticeable was the focus our customers have on the cloud industry, new trends in the market, how they need to change to continue growing and respond to what their customers need – and how OnApp can help.
One of the hot topics at the CAB was private cloud, and our new turnkey private cloud appliances running on Intel hardware. Offering on-premise cloud alongside public cloud services helps service providers win more business by managing more of their customers’ workloads – and our new OnApp-Intel solution helps service providers bring the simplicity and power of OnApp public cloud, into the enterprise datacenter.
“It was so good to see just how much energy and drive our customers have, and what a real appetite they have to expand beyond public cloud and managed cloud, into private cloud solutions,”said Alistair Wildman, our Chief Revenue Officer.
“If you want to grow in this market you have to find new ways to turn your expertise and experience into new revenues. The guys at the CAB are certainly leading that charge – it’s fantastic to see so much positivity in their plans for the future.”
