“ I believe as humans we thrive on finding our purpose. For me it’s about doing something that I find meaningful and fulfilling but that also challenges me everyday, that is the best place to be. The Amito journey is incredibly exciting, and the team that I have around me are key; there’s nothing better than sharing your purpose with a great group of likeminded people.”
Ed Butler, CEO
The core Amito team have “been in it together” since the very beginning, meeting at University whilst studying Computer Science back in 2002. Between them they have vast collective experience, and they have been a united, successful team in both the cloud and colocation hosting industry for nearly 20 years; constantly learning, innovating and developing best in class solutions.
In 2001 Ed Butler, our CEO, created the hosting company Rapidswitch, and was joined by the other members of the team in 2006. Shortly after they designed and built their first data centre in Maidenhead, with 8 MVa across 9 data halls it was an impressive 30,140ft² facility.
With a drive for excellence, Ed and the team went on to set up icloudhosting and Everest Data Centres in 2011. Drawing on their previous experience, they designed and built Reading’s largest, most efficient, and secure Datacentre in 2012, which is our flagship data centre today, a tier 3+ facility with over 1,000 racks in 60,000ft².
The acquisition of Crosspoint in 2016 broadened their offering to include a wide range of colocation capability, and the three companies branded as Amito in 2018 to become a comprehensive, full service hosting company.
At the beginning of 2021 Amito’s growth strategy was backed by significant investment, including follow-on funding, from Harwood Private Equity.
We firmly believe that work should be enjoyable and fun, and are committed to creating a culture that:
- celebrates our differences
- provides opportunities for us to socialise and laugh together
- encourages personal growth and development
- supports, nurtures and is built on trust
We care deeply about what we do and believe in the power of teamwork in order to succeed. Self confessed geeks, we relish the opportunity to solve problems and unblock challenges for our customers and for each other, working with an energy and commitment to excel in everything we do.
We believe in being supportive, we treat each other and our customers with patience, kindness and honesty, we don’t take ourselves too seriously, and we recognise the importance of going home on time and having a healthy work/life balance.
We believe that values are not just something to stick on the wall and use to give a good impression. We have taken the time to create our shared values as a company, based on our collective experiences so far, our customers’ feedback, and the aspirations we hold for our future. They provide a framework for us to lean on and refer to in our day to day roles.
- We aim for excellence
