Global managed cloud services provider opens East Coast headquarters to accommodate rapid growth and leverage the area’s diverse high-tech talent pool

IRVINE, Calif. – February 28, 2018 – RapidScale, a leader in managed cloud services, has announced the opening of its dual headquarters in Raleigh, North Carolina. The new East Coast office is designed to accommodate 30 employees and is located in the heart of downtown Raleigh. Today’s announcement follows strong growth in 2017 during which the company grew revenues 112%. RapidScale makes it easy to integrate applications, users, accessibility and efficiency into a business of any size or industry with its fully-managed suite of cloud solutions and services, and 24x7x365 support for all customers. The company now offers on-site support in select regions, including Raleigh, and is staffed accordingly to support customers that need local resources. “As a company with a global footprint that meets the needs of companies throughout the United States, it became necessary to have a presence on the East Coast. We were attracted to Raleigh due to its reputation as an innovation and technology hub,” said Chief Operating Officer William Hiatt. “As a rapidly growing company, it is crucial we have access to a qualified talent pool to meet the diverse needs of our customers. We look forward to taking advantage of the best that Raleigh has to offer for our employees and customers.” The office is currently home to a growing representation of RapidScale executive management and employees, including engineering, support, sales and finance. The company expects to expand its East Coast presence with 57% projected revenue growth in 2018 and at least 10 local hires in engineering and support. The Raleigh team is positioned to support more than 53% of RapidScale’s client base. “Our team used to be predominantly on the West Coast, but to properly service our East Coast customers and improve call coverage hours, it made sense to have an East Coast office. Raleigh was a natural choice, as we already had leadership based here and a strong candidate pool from the local technology companies and universities,” said Senior Vice President of Technology Duane Barnes. “Our initial office space is 5,000 square feet and we already expect to outgrow that in 18 months and continue our expansion in Raleigh.” RapidScale occupies the 6th floor of the downtown office building on Raleigh’s main street at 555 Fayetteville St., Suite 620, Raleigh, N.C. 27601. The building is one of only two LEED® Platinum office towers in the Southeast region. Raleigh is the company’s third office, adding to its West Coast headquarters in Irvine and an office in Tysons, Virginia. “We are thrilled to have RapidScale expand and open their East Coast headquarters in Raleigh,” said Derrick Minor, Innovation and Entrepreneurship Manager for the City of Raleigh. “They have assembled a world-class team in the heart of our downtown and are exactly the type of company we are looking to have join our community.” RapidScale is holding an open house celebration of the new office on March 15th, inviting Raleigh community members, sales partners and customers in the local Mid-Atlantic region.
