I am fresh back from my first trip to China and my eyes are wide open. Wow. What an amazing, deeply cultural and opportunity-rich experience. I was struck with the warmth and courtesy I received at each of my important meetings; Alibaba, Microsoft, Tencent, 21Vianet, Forrester Research and Unisplendour Corporation. I was given a tour of the state-of-the art Alibaba facilities and served traditional chrysanthemum tea at Microsoft.
I was pleasantly surprised last week when I read the latest Gartner report, Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Application Platform as a Service, Worldwide and found that our aPaaS, AppScale was prominently mentioned.
It’s exciting to be partnering with Canonical / Ubuntu again as a member of their Charm Partner Program.
