Mission: To be the world’s favorite marketplace for technology professionals to buy cloud products

Pax8 simplifies the way organizations buy, sell, and manage cloud solutions, empowering our partners to achieve more with cloud technology. Our born-in-the-cloud platform modernizes the channel’s cloud journey with consolidated billing, automated provisioning, and industry-leading PSA integrations. And our technology is backed by an experience that provides responsive, 24/7 support alongside the education and resources you need to grow your cloud business.

 

Ranked in the Inc. 500 for four consecutive years — #68 in 2018, #60 in 2019, #111 in 2020, and #164 in 2021 — as one of the fastest-growing private companies in the US, and ranked #1 on the Denver Business Journal’s Fast50 as the fastest-growing large business in Denver, Pax8 is rapidly expanding on a global scale and displacing legacy distribution by connecting the channel ecosystem to our award-winning cloud marketplace. If you want to be successful in the cloud, you want to work with Pax8.

The Pax8 Story

When looking for the next challenge to build on his legacy of founding and leading successful tech companies, innovative CEO John Street realized there was a glaring need for a modern distribution channel for cloud IT service providers. Along with Chief Technology Officer Klaus Dimmler and Chief Product Officer & Channel Chief Ryan Walsh, Street founded Pax8 in 2012 with the goal of simplifying how partners buy, sell, and manage cloud.  

 

Since its founding, Pax8 has grown rapidly – bringing thousands of partners on board, continually adding new vendors and solutions to our product stack, moving and expanding offices to accommodate our rising employee headcount, and winning award after award for our technology, partner experience, and company culture.

HOW DID PAX8 GET ITS NAME?

When naming the startup, Street wanted to stand out in the industry. So, he searched for a name that was short, easy to spell and pronounce, alpha-numeric, and which utilized the strength of the letter “x.” Street ultimately decided to combine the Latin word for “peace” with the luckiest number in Chinese business — giving rise to Pax8.
