Multi-Tenancy Not Required for SaaS, Cloud Computing
Virtual Ark CEO Marty Gauvin Explains Why in Interview

Virtual Ark Session at Cloud Expo

"Virtual Ark can manage dedicated instances of the application for specific customer needs as if they were "one" application instance," says Virtual Ark CEO Marty Gauvin in an exclusive interview with Cloud Expo Conference Chair Jeremy Geelan.

"In our view," he continues, "the security, integration and performance requirements of our target market, large enterprise customers, are ill-suited to multi-tenant solutions. We think this is a key reason why SaaS has not been taken up more strongly by this market segment, and why many ISVs have not modified their applications to be multi-tenant. Virtual Ark sees this as an important differentiator in its value proposition." Virtual Ark is the Platinum Sponsor of Cloud Expo, which will be held at the Javits Center in New York April 19-21.

Discussing the company's background, Gauvin says, "Virtual Ark commenced operation in July 2009. The company is backed by private shareholding and the investment bank, Baron Partners. The shareholders and management team (which has worked together for a decade), sold their previous company to the Macquarie Communications Infrastructure Group for US$64m. Current partners include Grid Dynamics, Ingres, Technology One, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Rackspace. Others are being finalized over the coming weeks so stay tuned for more announcements!"

He does not lack confidence in his company's mission or prospects, as can be seen to his response to a question to name the top five Cloud vendors in the world: "Amazon, Rightscale, Rackspace, Microsoft Azure and Virtual Ark!"

The full interview can be found in the online version of Cloud Computing Journal.
