On the 11th March, we attended the UK Cloud Awards at the stylish Plateau venue in London’s Canary Wharf. With the focus of the event on achievements in the cloud industry, Gavin Jackson (our VP and GM of Cloud Services in EMEA) and Richard Munro (Chief Technologist– vCloud Air) were the obvious choices to represent VMware at the event.
We can proudly announce that vCloud Air won the award for Most Innovative Enterprise Product of the Year. Gavin Jackson said of the achievement, “As a relatively new entrant into the Public Cloud arena, I’m delighted that our industry peers chose vCloud Air as their Most Innovative Enterprise Cloud. It demonstrates the recognition the industry has that Hybrid Cloud is the de facto destination and that VMware is the innovator, leading the movement in this space.”
Gavin further commented, “Adoption for vCloud Air and therefore Hybrid Cloud is outweighing industry analysts’ expectations. So I would look out for an industry reset in the coming months that positions vCloud Air as a leader in this professional era of cloud computing.”
Gavin concluded, “I’d also like to congratulate my fellow colleagues from across the sector for continuing to drive value and adoption of Hybrid Cloud and continuing to put technology at the centre of business.”
