Provision Networks founders leave Quest and focus on cloud computing

During the summer Quest lost both founders of its Provision Networks subsidiary, as confirmed by CRN.

Paul Ghostine (former CEO) and Peter Ghostine (former CTO) sold Provision Networks to Quest in November 2007.
The leadership of the VDI division is now in the hands of Simon Pearce, who worked at Quest for 12 years as Vice Presidents in charge for the business in Western Europe.

Meanwhile the Ghostine brothers already founded a new company called cloudWORX where, according to their LinkedIn profiles, they keep the positions of CEO and CTO.
Easy to guess the company, still in stealth mode, is focused on cloud computing (not clear which architecture anyway, IaaS, PaaS or SaaS).

Provision Networks is one of the very few companies that rated as Outperforming in its Virtualization Industry Radar. Whatever these guys are going to do we’ll keep a close eye on it.
