The world’s largest privately-held cloud computing platform, Vultr, has expanded its executive team with the appointments of Amit Rai and Nathan Goulding.

New Appointments to Drive Growth and Innovation

Amit Rai, former SVP of Data-as-a-Service and Data Orchestration at ZoomInfo, joins as Vultr’s General Manager of AI and Enterprise Cloud.

Rai will be focused on expanding Vultr’s AI and enterprise solutions across its global cloud footprint, spanning six continents. He previously worked for Infosys, Fidelity, Qualcomm, Model N, and EverString.

Nathan Goulding, previously Senior Director of Cross-Product Platform Engineering at Equinix, has been appointed as Vultr’s SVP of Engineering. He is tasked with advancing Vultr’s product roadmap across its 32 global cloud data centre locations.

Goulding began his career founding the game server hosting company ECGN in 2002. He then continued his cloud infrastructure career at Voxel, Internap, and Packet. He has been a strong advocate for open source technology, contributing as a co-creator and architect of the Apache-licensed Tinkerbell.

J.J. Kardwell, CEO of Vultr’s parent company Constant, expressed enthusiasm about the new additions: “As we increasingly support the needs of global enterprises and high-growth innovators … I couldn’t be more excited to welcome these two seasoned executives,” he said.

Kardwell highlighted the importance of Rai and Goulding’s roles in enhancing Vultr’s services to meet the evolving needs of businesses and developers worldwide.
