UKFast Hires Ex-ANS Flex Pod Expert to Grow Public Sector
Article date: Mon, 02 Sep 2013 09:48 GMT
Fast-growing cloud and colocation firm UKFast has appointed Mark Walker to lead the company's move into the public sector with the introduction of cloud range, FlexPod.
Walker joins the team having worked as regional sales manager at both cloud firm ANS and IT firm Proact, bringing years of experience in storage solutions and the cloud range FlexPod.
Walker brings FlexPod to UKFast for the first time, expanding the firm's eCloud™ portfolio and cementing its place as the most dynamic player in the UK cloud market.
Lawrence Jones, CEO of UKFast, said: "The tremendous success of our eCloud range and our involvement in G-Cloud have meant UKFast has surpassed expectations and 2013 is set to be an incredibly good year.
"Now we've brought Mark in to add even more to our cloud portfolio - it is a really exciting time for UKFast.
"With this appointment we are able to offer the public sector the opportunity to move away from their traditional risky in-house data centres into secure, resilient and modern facilities to experience how the internet should be."
Walker said: "I have worked in several technology companies in my time but have never experienced the culture and atmosphere like that of UKFast. It's brilliant to be part of a technology firm that focusses on service as well as technology.
"There's a real difference between UKFast and other businesses I've worked at. The level of innovation here is extraordinary. It's truly inspiring. If you want something doing, these guys just create it.
"Providers often don't realise that it is this service element that is more important than having big brand tech - with UKFast we have both and I am really excited to take this to the public sector."
UKFast will be offering FlexPod - a cloud range developed by a conglomerate of three tech heavyweights, Cisco, NetApp and VMware, to optimise performance of data centre storage - alongside its current eCloud range, colocation and dedicated portfolio.
