Richard May, Managing Director, virtualDCS

In 2000 Richard May led the move towards Cloud Services, participating in Microsoft’s first Service Provider Licensing offering (SPLA). This was followed in 2005 by assisting with the Beta program which became VMware’s Service Provider Program (VSPP). Working closely with these organisations he created one of the first true Cloud platforms in existence, taking ICM NetServ Limited from a small start-up to become one of the UK’s fastest growing ISP hosting businesses.

In 2008 Richard formed a hosting company called virtualDCS (Virtual Data Centre Services), utilising his previous experience he was able to build an Enterprise Class VMware hosting platform, with the accolade of being the first “VMware Service Provider Enterprise partner”. Since its formation virtualDCS has focused on its key skills to provide hosting environments, offering hosting services around Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Recovery as a Service (RaaS), and Software as a Service (SaaS).
