OnRamp, a hybrid hosting provider with data center facilities in Texas and North Carolina, has announced that Matt Hammons will join the leadership team as Vice President of Operations. In this role, Hammons will oversee infrastructure and data center operations, service delivery, customer satisfaction, and business operations.
Matt Hammons joins OnRamp from Rackspace where he was Director of Engineering for a Platform-as-a-Service product. During his 6-year tenure at Rackspace, Mr. Hammons led the build and opening of the company’s Sydney, Australia Data Center as well as the migration of over 1000 customers from the closing Herndon, Virginia Data Center.
Prior to Rackspace, Hammons was Technology Infrastructure Manager at Accenture’s Texas Medicaid and Healthcare Partnership. In this role he was responsible for operations and implementation of healthcare focused infrastructure, delivering solutions for the State of Texas.
“OnRamp brings simplicity to the increasingly complex hosting market where regulatory frameworks govern the storage and transmission of sensitive data of all types,” said Matt Hammons. “I’m honored to join a dedicated and skilled team to help make customer’s lives easier.”
As an SSAE 16 SOC II audited, PCI Level 1 and HIPAA compliant company, OnRamp operates multiple enterprise class data centers to deploy hybrid solutions built on cloud-delivered computing capacity, managed hosting and colocation services.
“In the past few years we have seen tremendous growth as a company,” said Ryan Robinson, President of OnRamp. “In 2013, we opened a new facility in Raleigh, North Carolina to serve the east coast market and offer geographic and power grid diversity to the central Texas market for business continuity purposes. And, in 2014, we finished the build out of our Austin II Data Center, a 42,000 square foot facility built to address the increased demand in the healthcare, financial services, education and other industries for secure hosting solutions. We are excited to have Matt join our team as we are confident that his experience will add greatly to the natural progression of our company.”
