Our Story

“In the early days, we wanted to help people who were quoted astronomical prices for very simple IT services. That was the driving factor for what we’re doing and why we’re doing it.”

— Enzu CEO Steve Empie

Enzu was founded in 2007 by Steve Empie and Nick Rose –  two cloud veterans with a passion for leveraging technology to help companies solve their biggest challenges. Steve had previously built and sold a successful web hosting company before teaming up with Nick, who had been in the cloud trenches for more than a dozen years. Both had seen firsthand the hurdles that companies often face when adopting the cloud including cost, complexity and scalability.

So, they built a different kind of cloud company – one that helps businesses accelerate their time to success by offering a more flexible, scalable and affordable enterprise-class cloud computing environment than any other provider.

How did they do it? The same way we do today:

  • We customize solutions to meet our clients’ needs.
  • We automate functions to reduce complexity.
  • We operate leanly to keep costs low and rates competitive.

Enzu serves as a collaborative partner to both emerging companies and global enterprises, helping them navigate the complicated IT landscape and make intelligent technology choices. Our overriding goal is to enable organizations to leverage our IT infrastructure to their competitive advantage.

“We want to help companies meet an IT need by bringing in a solution – whether it’s migrating to the cloud or scaling their app across 100 or 1,000 instances,” Steve says. “We enjoy helping them work through their unique needs and finding a solution.”

  Born on the Cloud – Built on Family Values

Enzu co-founders Steve Empie and Nick Rose are “born in the cloud” leaders with a passion for helping companies make intelligent technology choices that accelerate their business growth and transformation. Understanding the unique challenges that companies face when adopting the cloud, Steve and Nick built Enzu from the ground up to deliver flexible, scalable and affordable enterprise-class cloud solutions backed by unmatched customer support.

Therese Empie, Steve’s sister, brings operational excellence to Enzu Business Operations and Services.  Together with the rest of Enzu’s team, we are building a company that provides lifelong learning and earning opportunities for their employees and an unbeatable combination of customized and cost-effective cloud as a Service solutions.
