“Before joining RapidScale, I was designing cloud solutions for clients and I looked to partner with RapidScale as often as possible,” said Roberts. “I appreciated the sophisticated level of engagement from everyone involved. Their dedication to our craft was second to none, and I found the engineering resources at RapidScale to be world-class. I look forward to bringing this level of expertise to our partners amd strengthening our relationships in the mighty Midwest.”

RapidScale was acquired by Cox Business in August 2018, to solidify the cable company’s journey into IT and managed services. RapidScale maintained its structure after the acquisition, becoming part of the Cox New Business Ventures unit.
