Key to Ninefold's strategy is the appointment of Andrew Harvey, who brings a strong history as a developer building applications in the Cloud.

As the new technical community manager, he will liaise regularly with the developer community, providing feedback directly into the product design process and ensuring Ninefold continues to help its customers get on with the business of making highly available and scalable applications.

Along with Harvey, Toby Hede joins the team as technical lead/software engineer, and Julian Valbuena, as an experienced operations engineer.

Jason Gellatly was hired to Ninefold's customer support team to assist developers, ensuring they keep their projects on track.

"We will continue to engage with the developer communities to better understand their needs in building and rapidly deploying their applications," Ninefold chairman and co-founder, Peter James, said.
