Investment firm Blackstone acquired Cloudreach last year, and has bankrolled a number of deals to expand its reach into North America.
The Knative GitHub page begins with a pronunciation guide because no one understands how to pronounce the platform's name.
The investment plans include producing equipment stateside to be closer to its customers, opening a new software development center, and hiring several hundred employees.

The platform uses technology from Multapplied that is used in a white label form by Comcast, Rogers Communications in Canada, and Fusion Broadband in Australia.

Synergy Research Group said AWS is “in a league of its own” compared with its smaller segment rivals.
Most of that 5-year growth will come from an increased use of wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) to support the extension of higher network speeds closer to end users.
