Open cloud company, Joyent, has announced the appointment of Scott King as its Vice President of Cloud Data Centers. Mr. King would join at a time of high customer demand for Joyent’s Triton Private Regions.
“Cloud mature organizations want the best of both worlds. They want the economics of a private cloud with the agility and flexibility of a public cloud, said Scott Hammond, CEO of Joyent. “Scott will help us expand our ability to deliver both cost savings and greater agility to our customers by helping us grow our global footprint of Triton Private Regions.”
Drawing on his 20 years of data center management experience – most recently at VMware – Mr. King’s directive would be to expand Joyent’s global footprint to support the growth of Triton Private Regions around the world.
Scott King comes to Joyent after spending five years at VMware, most recently as Senior Director of Global Data Center Strategy and Operations, during which time he united five different global regions into one cohesive business unit and set the overall data center strategy for VMware.
At VMware, Mr. King was also responsible for building out the worldwide Cloud Operations organization for vCloud Air. Prior to VMware, Mr. King spent more than 20 years managing data centers for industry leading managed hosting, dedicated hosting and colocation companies.
“Joyent has a stellar reputation in cloud infrastructure, and its launch of Triton Private Regions more than piqued my interest,” said Scott King. “It’s an honor to join a team of such talented and customer-centric professionals as we accelerate growth and scale our capabilities globally.”
Joyent is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Samsung. With its Triton Kubernetes service, Joyent would help its customers build and operate hybrid, modern and open cloud-native architectures. Joyent‘s Triton Private Regions provide dedicated cloud infrastructure that enables users to run and scale some of the world’s largest cloud-based web, AI, machine learning, mobile and IOT applications.
