An individual who values innovation that provides real business benefit, Josh Rubens founded Cloud Solutions Group in 2010 to help Australian businesses with their journey to the cloud.
With more than seven years’ experience building cloud solutions, Josh wants to share his knowledge and save organisations from ‘painting themselves into a corner’ at the start of their transition.
While many businesses have used VMware and established the benefits of virtualisation, there is a general lack of awareness and confidence in the overall analysis required to make future-proof decisions about which systems to move to the cloud, and when. Josh’s mission is to help clients along the right path at these times of extreme change.
Josh has more than 15 years’ leadership experience, 12 of them in IT. In Cloud Solutions Group he has built a strong team with a shared vision of helping clients smoothly transition to using IT as a Service.
Cloud Solutions Group’s Technical Director Denis Rasidovski is passionate about developing long term, mutually beneficial relationships with clients.
With 10 years’ experience in the areas of virtualisation, storage and infrastructure consulting, Denis believes clients need a roadmap for planning and a long term view of their infrastructure for success.
Denis keeps his finger on the pulse of technology developments and brings an international perspective to the Australian business environment, garnered from attendance at conferences and from vendor training through Cloud Solutions Group’s partnerships.
He believes that the biggest challenge for Australian businesses over the coming 2-3 years is to identify the best cloud-based solutions to alleviate problems with on-premise infrastructure and to deliver improved systems and costs. His goal is to help businesses avoid ‘false starts’ and transition smoothly to the cloud or a hybrid cloud/on-premise solution for genuine business value.
