Bigstep is positioned perfectly to bridge the gap between cloud and bare metal and to provide a platform that can be optimized for speed and cost savings based on where workloads live.
CHICAGO (PRWEB) August 13, 2019
Bigstep, one of the top bare metal cloud providers, today announced the appointment of John Martis as President. With experience working in the hosting industry since its inception, Martis is poised to help navigate Bigstep through the next transformation the market will see.
Martis previously served as President and CEO of Hostway Corporation and then Codero Hosting before making the move to Bigstep Metal Cloud. He has spent most of his career at the forefront of the transformations in the hosting industry and has helped companies stay ahead of the curve by adopting these new technologies at the right time.
At Hostway Corporation, Martis worked with Bigstep Founder Lucah Roh, who shared, “During our collective 10 years of work together at Hostway, John helped us to gain a competitive edge with his strong understanding of the market and what needed to be done and how to do it. We’re looking forward to applying those keen skills to our next milestone now at Bigstep.”
Bigstep's Bare Metal Cloud aims to revolutionize the traditional infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) market by combining features usually associated with Cloud technologies that provide for greater ease of use, speed of provisioning and flexibility with the isolation and efficiency of bare metal servers. Powerful, non-virtualized, single-tenant servers create a unique blend of performance and security.
“The dedicated server market has lacked innovation for many years,” said John Martis, “The Bigstep platform takes the best parts of cloud technology – scalability, instant provisioning, metered billing – and combines them with the raw power, security and predictability of dedicated bare metal servers creating a truly innovative product offering.”
Martis will lead the Bigstep team to reposition the company as a serious player in the IaaS market. Historically the company has been focused on the Big Data market but Martis noted, “I don’t see any reason to limit our focus in that area since all companies can benefit from what is offered by the platform.”
Responding to what customers are directly demanding, Bigstep’s leaders understand the trends in the hosting market and need for flexibility above all else. The right architecture for the foreseeable future is a hybrid approach. “People rushed to the cloud and were often faced with sticker shock when they discovered that some of their workloads were generating enormous amounts of billable transactions. Bigstep is positioned perfectly to bridge the gap between cloud and bare metal and to provide a platform that can be optimized for speed and cost savings based on where workloads live,” Martis said.
