2018 has gone by and with December comes the time to celebrate our efforts and successes. 2018 has been a great year for blueAPACHE. We have continued to invest in our global footprint with the establishment of an emPOWER Cloud Point of Presence in London, complementing our operational capability in the United States.
Furthermore, we were delighted to receive the CRN Fast50 All Star Award, which was indeed our thirteenth CRN Fast50 award since we received our first accolade back in 2009. These achievements highlight our commitment to serving the needs of our customers across the globe.
blueAPACHE was also recognised as the Veeam Cloud Service Provider of the Year and we were honoured to be shortlisted for HPE’s Service Provider of the Year. While we are humbled and appreciative of this public recognition, it is important for us to take stock of the outstanding team that made this achievement a reality.
To celebrate our achievements, we kicked off our year-end event with a Vegas-themed night at the Crown Promenade in Melbourne. Staff were invited to an evening of fun and entertainment which included exciting rounds of Poker, delicious canapés, food, drinks and a dance floor!
A presentation to welcome the year and forge our plans ahead were made. To recognise the hard work of our staff, we presented our annual staff awards for excellence in Customer Service, Project, Engineering, Innovation and our ‘This is IT’ award. The event went full steam into the night and everyone had a fantastic time as we close off the year and usher in the new.
We are privileged to be part of a dynamic industry of collaborators who are engaged with exploring the challenges and opportunities in a networked society. We wish to thank everyone at blueAPACHE for making all this possible and to acknowledge the enormous contribution from our customers and partners, through their partnership and sharing of networks.
