Based in Halifax, Brandon is the co-founder of Cloud A, Canada’s pioneering OpenStack-based IaaS provider. Cloud A addresses the needs of Canadian organizations seeking a combination of open standards, Canadian data residency, and advanced capabilities (such as automation, scalability and disaster recovery) that are built into the IaaS solution. The company’s tremendous growth speaks to the importance of its core platform design.
Prior to launching Cloud A, Brandon was co-founder of Sheepdog, a pioneering ecosystem partner which helped customers to embrace industry-leading products like Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud Platform, and which was at one point the only Premier Google Apps reseller in Canada. Brandon has also launched other cloud/web focused companies, including Norex (web application development) and Cloud Brewery (a new firm focused on OpenStack security and ecosystem development).
