Thank You for an Amazing 2014

tutum_happy_holidays_png

2014 has been a once-in-a-lifetime year for Tutum. The original project was hacked together in 2 months in Buenos Aires, and this year we saw Tutum turn into a cloud platform being used by thousands. We tripled the size of our team, from three to nine (and we’re still hiring!). We settled (finally!), and opened two offices; one in Madrid, Spain and another in Williamsburg in Brooklyn, New York.

All in all, it has been a year full of learning. We learned it’s not about deploying containers, but about cloud-enabled applications, and facilitating the entire lifecycle. We listened to our users who wanted to use Tutum in their existing infrastructure, and were not interested in yet-another-hosting-provider.

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of our users for their endless supply of support and feedback. It may sound cliché, but you have all been truly instrumental in creating what Tutum is today, THANK YOU. With this in mind, we challenge you to keep the tweets, tickets, emails, and feedback coming in 2015.

I would like to personally thank the more than 1,000 users that took the time to personally reply to my welcome email. I know a few of you have yet to receive a response; I promise I won’t stop until I’ve replied to every single one of you.
