Celebrating 30 Years
October 3rd, 2018 marks 30 years of business for NewCloud Networks! Here’s to another 30 years of mutual success for customers, employees, and partners alike. Let’s test your NewCloud Networks history knowledge as we take a little walk down memory lane.
NewCloud Networks opened its doors for the first time on October 3, 1988 in Aurora, Colorado. Founded by Sam V. Kumar and Shashi R. Kumar, the business started under the name Microtech Telecom, or Microtech-Tel. Microtech-Tel’s focus was on telecommunications, specifically the reselling of PBX phone systems and communications hardware.
Over the years, service offerings expanded to include managed IT services with specialties in managed hosting, virtualization, and communications services. At this stage in the game, Microtech-Tel grew exponentially, gaining more than 20,000 PBX/network subscribers. It was also during this chapter that Microtech-Tel built its own top-tier data center at its corporate headquarters in the Denver Tech Center.
Reading the market and analyzing future trends has always been a priority for Sam and Shashi. With the technology space evolving rapidly, it’s important to stay ahead of the curve. For this reason, after strategizing with some key industry figures, it was decided that the scope of the company needed to change to stay profitable and successful. With that in mind, the vision of the company shifted to providing high-value cloud solutions and services. With superior communications experience during the Microtech-Tel days, adding cloud communications and cloud computing made the business a complete cloud solutions provider from end to end. A complimentary re-brand to what we all know today as NewCloud Networks, invokes the rise of a new cloud provider with superior service offerings, maximum reliability and sky-high performance.
Today, NewCloud Networks is a global cloud computing and communications provider specializing in backup, disaster recovery, production cloud, and much more. NewCloud’s ultra-low latency network utilizes cloud hubs in data centers throughout the United States and Germany; and we’re still growing! Using best-of-breed technology, we’ve built a unified cloud platform that is SOC 2 Type 1, HIPPA, and PCI-compliant. And, with customized solutions, competitive pricing, and white glove service, it’s no wonder NewCloud has an incredible 95% customer retention rate to date. NewCloud Networks rides on high hopes and high expectations into the future!
