AUSTIN, TX – MAY 3, 2018 — Hostway, the most trusted leading managed hybrid multi-cloud hosting provider and specialist in compliant cloud hosting solutions, today announced industry veteran Chandler Vaughn as SVP, Chief Technology and Product Officer. Vaughn will be in charge of developing and executing Hostway’s technology and product strategy to further bolster its position as a leader in hosting mission critical applications.
“I welcome Chandler to the Hostway family and look forward to him guiding our product development roadmap and overseeing all technical aspects of the company. Chandler and I have a long history of working together to build cloud solutions going back well over a decade,” said Emil Sayegh, CEO and president of Hostway. “With Chandler’s strong leadership, vision and commitment to innovation, our product portfolio will evolve to become even more compelling for our customers.”
Vaughn was most recently Chief Product and Technology Officer for managed services and SaaS company FATHOM.

Earlier in his career, he held various senior management positions at Rackspace where he helped spearhead the eventual formation of OpenStack, the world’s first free and open-sourced cloud-computing platform now leveraged by a wide array of SaaS companies to provide their services.
Vaughn launched the first ever recovery cloud and recovery automation services for the enterprise, state, local and municipal markets, and served as the founder and head of the Cloud Computing Research Center at The University of Texas at Austin. He is currently named as inventor on several pending patents for Distributed Block Storage and Distributed Computing.
