“I’m incredibly excited to be in the heart of Raleigh and we’re so grateful that our customers, partners, and members of the community were able to celebrate with us. Our new location not only enables us to continue our growth trajectory but also provides our employees an ideal place to work,” said Barnes. We wanted the space to be collaborative, high-tech, and conducive to flexible work so that we can provide our customers with the best possible experience. We’re so proud to be part of the thriving technology community in Raleigh and look forward to contributing to its continued success.”

“RapidScale’s move to this office tower is a testament to the company’s commitment to growth and innovation,” said Baldwin. “We’re thrilled to see a leading cloud technology company investing in our community and look forward to working with RapidScale as it continues to grow and thrive here in Raleigh.”
