Platform 9 Emerges From Stealth Mode to Manage Cloud

The reason the company is named Platform9 is a nod to the fictional Harry Potter universe. In the Harry Potter books, Platform 9 and 3/4 is the train platform from which the train departs to the Hogwarts school. In the books, the platform is not accessible to normal humans (muggles) and is only the domain of those with magical abilities.
