We are delighted to announce the appointment of David Legrand as Chief of Hardware Evaluation. David’s arrival accompanies an important phase in our company’s structuring. Indeed, with a third data center in Paris coming up, brand new servers, innovation and R&D projects, we continue to strengthen our team to support our sustained growth in the cloud market. He will report directly to Clever Cloud’s CEO, Quentin Adam and will work in collaboration with Steven Le Roux, Clever Cloud’s CTO.
Clever Cloud is a French company founded in Nantes, France, which has created its own software technologies since 2010 and is a pioneer in Europe in the automation of application deployment. It has a large number of customers in 80 countries around the world. With a turnover that has almost doubled again in one year, Clever Cloud has experienced significant growth since its creation, due in particular to its ability to regularly bring innovations to its customers. For example, in October 2021 alone, Clever Cloud was the first cloud provider in Europe to launch Apache Pulsar as a managed service, followed by Jenkins with per-second pricing, and the time-stamped data optimised database TARDIS, which is charged on a per-use basis.
About David Legrand
David was the Editorial Director of Next INpact and a journalist specialized in hardware and new technologies for the past 20 years.
