• UKFast launches new business ClearCloud

        • UKFast has announces the launch of ClearCloud, a new business specialising in supporting public cloud offerings from Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure, along with its own dedicated, eCloud Hybrid and eCloud Private solutions. 

           ClearCloud is a subsidiary of UKFast and launches with the purpose of broadening the firm’s multicloud offering to its 5,000 clients, alongside winning new AWS and Azure customers looking for high-quality, UK-based support. 

          Former AWS Global Architect Matt Bibby joins ClearCloud as Managing Director, bringing experience of public cloud in large-scale, complex sectors and enterprise digital transformation.    

          Matt Bibby, ClearCloud MD said, “the hyperscale cloud providers depend heavily on technology partners to support the end customer. During my time at AWS I learned how some technology partners are doing things right, but also how many get it terribly wrong and lack the experience necessary to manage complex environments.

          “The time I spent inside AWS was invaluable and taught me always to search for the next opportunity. The offer of working with Lawrence to grow a business under the UKFast umbrella is too big an opportunity for me to pass up.”

          Lawrence Jones, UKFast CEO said, “by widening our offering to organisations needing multicloud solutions we are able to attract even more businesses to UKFast. When we hear clients offering their AWS and Azure workloads for us to manage, it’s hard to ignore, especially when they’re struggling.

          “It’s not easy to entice great people away from a fast-growing business like AWS, but Matt was impressed with our ethos and ambition. He’s a tremendous asset and I’m excited to see ClearCloud develop.”

          ClearCloud is based at FastForward, Tech Manchester’s accelerator space at UKFast Campus.
