Taking some steps out of stealth

I’ve been doing a lot of behind-the-scenes work over the past few months as my new company Framehawk has been preparing to come out of stealth.  That has meant the volume of posts here at Data Center Dialog has dropped off a bit, but that’s all about to change if things go as planned.

Last week’s Under the Radar conference was our first official Framehawk public event.  Our CEO, Peter Badger, was onstage for 6 minutes (14 minutes, if you include the Q&A) to explain who we are and what we do.  And the outcome was pretty encouraging:  we won the Audience Choice Award for the Mobile Access category.  (You can see video of his award-winning presentation -- and live demo -- here.)

That event also served as a bit of a milestone for us, marking our emergence from stealth.  We’ll still be very focused on the success of our early customers (like UBS), but we won’t be quite so secretive going forward. 

As a result, we’ve spiffed up our website a bit and even started our official company blog. Surprise, surprise: I’ll be one of the consistent contributors there.  I’ll be cross-posting appropriate content both there and here.

The first couple posts are already up over there:  one saying “hello world,” one talking about the Under the Radar conference itself, and another two (one by me, one by our CTO Stephen Vilke) starting to scratch the surface on the BYOD topic.  I’ll also continue to blog here on other cloud, IT ops, and data center topics not necessarily connected to Framehawk as appropriate (but isn’t all about mobility and cloud computing these days?).

Check us out over there, keep reading here, and let me know if you want to know more about what we’re doing at Framehawk.
