We have recently taken on two new members of staff for our development, hosting and support teams and I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce them.
We welcome Peter Lavelle as a Systems Administrator following the development of our Cloud hosting service. Peter has extensive experience in maintaining Linux servers, providing internal and external client support and has already been key in implementing our automation systems using Puppet and Vagrant to streamline our development and deployment process.
This quarter has whizzed by, and it only feels like last week we were at Drupalcon London enjoying the great british weather and the aftermath of the riots. Its been a busy few months here at Ixis, as we have seen a raft of new hosting and support clients come on board as more Drupal users look to procure services from our reliable team.
There has been a boom in interest in our cloud based services and we have expanded the team to meet this demand, with the addition of Gary W and Paul J. We are almost fit to burst here at the office (and they wont let me get rid of the pool table to make space) so it looks like an office move might be on the cards in the new year.
We kicked off the new year with expansion in our web development team to meet the never ending increase in Drupal demand.
During the last 12 months we were turning down work because the team was fully booked every month with client projects, and 2010 has already brought a wave of new clients for both the development and hosting services, so the team expansion could not come at a better time.
The content management platform Drupal powers 100% of Ixis' projects, and has seen a huge increase in adoption from small to International organisations across the world. This growing buzz has lead to a staggering increase in Drupal specific work leads on a daily basis for us here at Ixis IT.
