In his statement the President and CEO at Ajubeo Mr. Chuck Price said, “Ajubeo is proud to receive the VMware vCloud Powered badge for our cloud infrastructure service offering. When Ajubeo began architecting our enterprise-class cloud IaaS platform, selecting VMware as our core virtualization technology partner was 100 percent on-brand with our performance, security and management objectives.
