As the founder of Cloudscaling, which was later acquired by EMC in 2014, Randy led the teams that achieved several significant cloud firsts, including the first public cloud in Korea, the first global carrier NFV cloud for AT&T, and the first "cattle cloud" for a Fortune 5 company, Walmart. His work as a change agent and expert disruptor within EMC led to the launch of the first mass-production OpenStack-powered appliance.
