About Arron Stebbing
I am driven by enabling partners to grow and adopt products and services in the cloud market. A member of the Strategy and Enablement (S&E) team at rhipe. I leads the VMware vCloud Air Network portfolio within S&E and focus on our Cloud Builders market. I have a technical background as highlighted below in My History. With a lot of experience in building, operating, productising and marketing cloud services. I have also designed, built, operated and sold cloud based services for various other companies. Working as an Operations Manager, Principal Architect and being involved in all parts of the sales life cycle provided me a platform of which to evangelise and promote the use of cloud technologies.
I regularly present at VMware conferences and User Groups across Australia/ New Zealand.
Having started my IT career in desktop management, automation and standard operating environments kick started my interest in VMware around 2002. Focused on the End User Computing products at the time, I also stepped into the Infrastructure world with exposure to VMware Server (GSX) and Lab Manager.
A company I worked for (2009) also owned an ISP providing hosting and I was able to help them consolidate and optimise the hosting platform with VMware ESX. Leading the charge in building a solid relationship with VMware helped us collaborate and build a self-service cloud platform based on VMware technology. Being one of the first companies to onboard in the VMware Service Provider Program (VSPP now vCloud Air Network) I have experience with the program from its infancy (2010).
