Podcast: Umbrellar have joined the Pax8 family
CEO Dave Howden and Head of Business Operations Nadia Phillips share the background story behind the recently announced purchase of New Zealand company Umbrellar Cloud Ltd by US-based cloud technology distributor Pax8.
Pax8 have built a strong reputation on a global level over the past few years and recently set their sights on the Asia Pacific region. After identifying Umbrellar’s service regions as areas they could expand into as a means of continuing their global reach and building their client base, the offer was made and the rest is history. So what does this mean for Umbrellar staff, vendors, partners and customers?
Listen in to find out that it’s actually ALL good news for everyone – and an exciting step forward for cloud services in New Zealand.

The cloud creates new paradigms for the technologies that support the business. These new paradigms also change how those technologies are adopted, managed, and governed. When entire datacenters can be virtually torn down and rebuilt with one line of code executed by an unattended process, we have to rethink traditional approaches. This is especially true for governance. Cloud governance is an iterative process. For organizations with existing policies that govern on-premises IT environments, cloud governance should complement those policies. The level of corporate policy integration between on-premises and the cloud varies depending on cloud governance maturity and a digital estate in the cloud. As the cloud estate changes over time, so do cloud governance processes and policies.
