“I couldn’t be more excited to be joining a company and executive team that’s on a mission to better serve enterprise IT as organisations rapidly advance their hybrid cloud,” Malaperiman said.

“I look forward to building new relationships with customers and partners across EMEA as we accelerate growth and adoption of CloudBolt’s enterprise cloud management platform beyond North America.”

CloudBolt’s strategic expansion into Europe comes at a time when EMEA overall cloud spend is expected to reach $57.7 billion in 2020, up from $50 billion in 2019, according to Gartner.
