Originally founded in 2007 as a Managed Services Provider, briteVAULT's resilient cloud platform grew out of the realization that customers no longer wanted to bear the pain, risk, and cap-ex burden of building, managing, repairing, and upgrading their own server farms. At the same time, as we built and deployed ever-more savvy computing infrastructures for our customers, we began to realize that not only were we good at enterprise-grade deployments, we were world-class at it. Upon coming to market with our first cloud offerings, the competitive landscape reaffirmed this belief and cemented it as our reality and founding story: we deliver excellent, cutting-edge, resilient, fast, reliable, and recoverable cloud solutions.

briteVAULT Core Beliefs
We believe we should be hard workers who love life, love our families, and love producing an exceptional work product. We believe that people have infinite value, and that each person has unique strengths. We encourage our stakeholders (we don’t call them employees) to invest in themselves in discovering these strengths - what they were born to do. We believe that when people come together in small teams with each member working in their strengths, unbelievable results will follow. We believe that an organization’s culture is what drives and determines the success of that organization. We believe that culture is a natural by-product of the core values and beliefs of that organization. We agree with Peter Drucker that “Culture eats strategy for breakfast.” We believe that building a great company requires that all the stakeholders exist to serve and champion each other and each client. We believe that when we empower and serve each other to work in our strengths, and when we are all working toward the common objective of building something great, we will discover greatness in the process. We also believe that greatness is not a destination, but a series of destinations. We will never ‘arrive’, because then we’d be tempted to rest on our laurels. We will always be striving to push toward the next level, to be even better than we were the day before. In this way, we will be great.
