The summer of 2016 has been a hectic one for Quali, with our new website coming up, multiple big tradeshows and several customer engagements as we scale our go-to-market to enterprises worldwide.
This week we are participating at VMworld a very key player in the private cloud space, the king of all things virtualization and making strong inroads into network virtualization, software defined data centers and hybrid clouds in general.
Team Quali had a strong presence here with our booth getting strong foot traffic and resulting in numerous conversations on how we could help solve what's today a really big problem in the industry around automating the "first mile" of DevOps on making the Dev/Test cycles more agile and efficient. This is where Quali's cloud sandboxes kick-in saving cost and accelerating time to market - automating the workflow for the full-stack including physical and virtual infrastructure as well as applications and data modeling. Customers around the world - public cloud providers, service providers, technology vendors to enterprises are deriving benefits of this solution, as they abstract complexity and simplify their workflows.
Recognizing this, Quali was selected for the Best of VMworld Finalist Award in the category of Agility and Automation. With every enterprise adapting to the pace of change, agility with automation is becoming a practical way to achieve competitive differentiation. We feel this recognition at VMworld amongst hundreds of vendors exhibiting is a great validation of the innovation and value proposition that Quali brings to the table.
Best of VMworld - Finalist award for Agility and Automation
Quali booth get swamped - "What is the cloud sandbox. How can it automate the workflow for my Dev/Test environment ?" is the most common question asked. Customers were also interested in how Quali could help scale BizOps use-cases - Demos, PoCs, Training Labs. Quali sandboxes are very malleable. So we asked them "What do you want your sandbox to be?".
We're keeping busy the rest of the year and dialing up the momentum. Quali will be at Jenkins World in two weeks. My comrade Hans Ashlock gives you a sneak peek of what we're up to there.
