Point of Rental is expanding its focus on providing scalable, secure, and reliable cloud hosting by creating a cloud engineering division, headed by new Chief Architect of Cloud Engineering Collin Pike.

“Business takes place in the cloud, even in the rental industry,” said Point of Rental VP of Global Technology Evan Fort. “In order to grow properly, it’s important that we coordinate between our products and plan to implement best in class hosting across our suite.”

Point of Rental currently uses several different types of cloud hosting. Moving forward, the cloud engineering division will manage the cloud scalability, security and reliability of all company cloud assets. Collin and his team will review or complete cloud architecture, prepare internal and external documentation, and manage different components of the technology stack involved.

Collin started his career as a linux engineer and has worked in numerous roles within development, engineering, and cloud architecture over a 14-year career in technology. He started at Point of Rental in 2017 as a Senior DevOps Engineer, working on the company’s first cloud application, Rental Essentials. Since then, he’s led efforts in developing the cloud-native application, as well as orchestrating serverless deployments.
