Happy New Year! We hope everyone had a restful and enjoyable holiday season.
For our first blog post of 2016 it seems fitting to reflect back on the year that was here at AirVM. We had our share of milestones, and while we’re proud of all that we accomplished, we are focused and excited for the year ahead.
Here are the highlights from a great 2015.
New Faces, New Places
We now have three times as many employees as we did in January 2015. That’s a lot of new faces in one year! With a growing presence in the Americas and EMEA, our team is building awareness of AirVM in more countries than ever before.
More importantly, our growth has enabled us to better serve our partners and deliver new features for the AirSembly platform. We have an experienced, collaborative, creative team and we enjoy working on leading-edge software technology. We are committed to making the business of reselling cloud services effortless from end-to-end for our service provider partners.
New Service Provider Partners
Speaking of service providers, we can’t possibly list every new partner we welcomed in 2015. While RackSpace is perhaps the most recognizable name, we were very happy to welcome Fundaments, Fujitsu Italy and MTF just to name a few. We also expanded to new geographies, and now have partners in New Zealand and South Africa.
Our partner success page highlights some of the reasons our partners have chosen AirSembly. Be sure to watch the video interviews with Arrian Mehis and Shantu Roy from RackSpace, both of whom understand the service provider space very well.
We welcomed our first aggregator partners in 2015. This is particularly exciting for us as these partners are highly knowledgable and have established themselves as trusted advisors in their respective regions. Working together with them will help us reach even more service provider partners. We are very pleased to be working with Insight EMEA, Crayon EMEA and First Distribution in South Africa.
Our our News and Events page contains press releases from a sampling of our new service provider and aggregator partners. We invite you to read through to see what they had to say about their reasons for choosing AirVM.
The Launch of AirSembly 2.0
Just prior to VMworld San Francisco we announced AirSembly 2.0. This release was a huge milestone for AirVM and our partners, who provided great feedback that helped us evolve AirSembly into a complete business management platform for cloud providers.
The new, responsively designed, fully customizable UI and overall ease of use made AirSembly 2.0 one of the hottest products at VMworld 2015 in San Francisco.
The feedback from partners has been very positive, and late in the year Duncan Epping from VMware was kind enough to review AirSembly. See what he had to say about the UI, our deep integration with vCloud Director and more.
AirSembly Now Recommended by VMware
In December we announced that AirSembly had been selected by VMware as a recommended cloud management platform partner for VMware vCloud® Air™ Network cloud providers. AirSembly was selected for its ability to help service providers speed up delivery of cloud services to their customers and increase operational efficiency.
This announcement means that VMware service providers can choose AirSembly with even greater confidence knowing that VMware has conducted its own evaluation of the platform. You can find more information on our “Better Together” story with VMware here.
A Great Year for Events
AirVM was a sponsor at several events this year. We were a bronze sponsor at VMworld San Francisco, a silver sponsor at VMworld Barcelona, and gold sponsor at both the OVH Summit in Paris and the Insight Hosting Summit in Muiden.
It’s safe to say that at both VMworld conferences you knew where to find our booth, in large part thanks to these crowd-pleasers…
The “King of Hammers” game received a shout out from CRN in this slideshow.
We also sent AirVM team members to other very notable events for service providers, including World Hosting Days EMEA, World Hosting Days America and HostingCon in San Diego.
Thank you for a memorable 2015!
We’d like to thank our service provider, aggregator and technology partners for your continued partnership. We look forward to delivering more innovation in 2016, and we wish you all the very best for the year ahead.
Not familiar with AirVM?
If you’re a VMware service provider and you’ve heard our name but aren’t completely sure what we’re about, or if you’re just discovering us now, we invite you talk with us about your cloud business. We’ll discuss your business in detail and explain why other service providers have chosen AirSembly as their business management platform. We look forward to hearing from you!
