Cloud Founders: Successful Start-up Mentality

As with all great products, Cloud Sites was built by a great team. In addition to Jonathan Bryce and Todd Morey, there were many other Rackers who put in a lot of blood, sweat and tears to create a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) to enable developers and designers to focus on their product without worrying about the hosting.

Successful products just don’t come into existence. They are not born that way. They take a lot of time and years to get right. With the dedication and perseverance of our Rackers, Cloud Sites has become that product that powers over 400,000 sites today and serves up 500 billion web requests a year.

In this video, hear directly from the founders the importance of a good team and perseverance. Be sure to also check out the founders other videos about Cloud Sites.
