Melbourne-headquartered MSP Blue Apache toasted turning 20 during a gala dinner at Melbourne's Plaza Ballroom earlier this month, with staff, partners and friends enjoying a night of food and entertainment.
Founder and managing director Chris Marshall addressed attendees with a welcome speech touching on some of the company's history, including his early days of selling Linux servers.
"Unheard of in its time, I started marketing Red Hat Linux powered servers supporting web, email and file sharing, bundled with 56k internet connectivity, domain name registration and server management all for one low monthly fee," he told guests.
"I'm sorry to say this wasn’t hugely successful with less than half a dozen customers taking up the offer. The world wasn’t ready for my vision of ITaaS."
