Zachary Smith (@zsmithnyc) is a born entrepreneur, having started his first business at the age of 10 mowing lawns with his brother. For the past 15 years, Zac has been focused on using software to build automated infrastructure platforms, helping to grow Voxel, a Linux-based hosting platform sold to Internap in 2011, into one of the early leading cloud hosting companies.
In 2014, Zac co-founded Packet to change the perception and usage of fundamental, bare metal compute, network and storage infrastructure and make it accessible by DevOps focused consumers. His biggest pleasure is talking to users of Packet and understanding their wants, concerns, and use cases for automated infrastructure.
