CEO Brett Raynes founded Cloud Direct in 2003. He had a vision of replacing old-world, on-premises IT with a simple, scalable and secure packaged cloud service that organisations could subscribe to in the same way they do with their electricity or gas service.
Cloud Direct wanted to help small to midsize businesses compete and thrive by freeing them from the pain and cost of traditional IT - this was before the term ‘cloud’ was on the lips of most people.
Our goal is to deliver long-term value to our customers and partners. We believe we can do this by adhering to five principles. These principles form the basis of all our decision-making from investment, recruitment, service levels and our relationship with all our stake-holders: Mutuality, Quality, Efficiency, Responsibility and Freedom.
Select acquisitions have helped increase our ability to deliver cloud solutions and provide customers with world-class support. We’ve completed five acquisitions to date: Back2Go, Activator UK, Datel Hosting, ihotdesk and Redblade.
