Steve Belton is Head of Cloud Engineering and Co-founder of InstaCloud, a solution that provides a low risk, low cost option for small businesses keen to take advantage of private cloud technology. Since 2013, Steve has been crucial to the business with his technology strategy background and Microsoft expertise, which today brings InstaCloud to market.
Steve has had a love for technology since the 1980’s, and in 2011 he fulfilled a lifelong dream by becoming a Senior Partner Technology Strategist at Microsoft. Prior to his time at Microsoft, Steve was Managed Hosting Director at Server Arcade. He initially co-founded the managed services hosting provider in 2008 and oversaw all technical elements of the business. Server Arcade was eventually acquired by Blue Square Data Group in April 2009.
Once the acquisition was complete, Steve became Director of Managed and Virtual Hosting at Blue Square Data, developing and supporting the managed hosting business as well as creating a Hyper-V based virtual platform for sister company PoundHost Internet.
Outside of work, Steve enjoys nothing more than spending his spare time with his children; mostly playing XBOX at their request. When he has the time, Steve supports the Seattle Seahawks which he began following whilst at Microsoft.
