I’ve been trying to write this post for few weeks now, nothing comes really perfect. So here’s a non-perfect post, about me leaving GigaSpaces and starting my own company:
I’m leaving GigaSpaces. It’s been almost four years since I joined GigaSpaces to lead the R&D team. When I first started, I wanted to work closely with Nati Shalom and with a new type of application server technology which was built to solve *big problems*. Together with a great group of people, we’ve built a great product, our famous GigaSpaces XAP. The proof of our success is this list of respected customers who are working with this product to run their business critical applications.
We didn’t just build a product. As many of us in this field now understand: great product is a result of great people, a lot of talent, professionalism and methodologies boiled together.
I’m very proud of what we’ve done together, and am grateful for the opportunity that I had. I also would like to thanks my friends at GigaSpaces, it’s been a real pleasure working with you guys!
In the past few years, I’ve witnessed the way technology influences my daily life. The internet, communication, globalization and the rapid innovation changes the way I live in this world. I was rather young programmer when the internet boomed back in the 90’s. Since than I’ve been in enterprise IT, doing middleware for the most part.
Now it seems to me that Internet is finally getting into enterprise IT. In my perspective, cloud computing is all about Internet meeting IT. IT becomes exciting! I’m excited. And for this reason I’ve decided to build my own new startup company around this new revolutionary ideas. I made a personal decision that I want to help this revolution to happen by building the tools missing in the market to support it.
Few days before my 38th birthday, I’m really excited about starting a new business which combines my passions: people, technology, methodology and new challenges.
Always looking forward!
