"The raw performance is extraordinary and we now supply Cloud services to five different media companies who each have their own virtual data centre. This enables them to broadcast valuable content in a totally secure and seamless fashion"
Martin Bradburn, CEO, Pea Soup
Pea Soup was founded in 2014 by two enterprise computing veterans who believed they could revolutionise Cloud Computing. It aims to simplify Cloud provisioning in order to more easily deliver computing solutions to its customers.
