LeaseWeb, a leading global infrastructure provider, today unveiled its German Cloud platform. The launch enables customers to instantly deploy cloud instances in Germany, backed by LeaseWeb’s worldwide network and easily managed through LeaseWeb’s premier customer portal.

The LeaseWeb Cloud is based on Cloudstack technology, fully redundant, and hosted in LeaseWeb Germany’s data center in Frankfurt. “After going through a careful design process we built a platform that can offer a highly flexible solution for every type of business”, said Robert van der Meulen, Manager Cloud at LeaseWeb. “Our cloud platform runs on premium hardware that not only stores all customer data twice, but also has redundant power and connectivity. We also provide an additional layer of security through the free firewall included with all instances. This has resulted in one of the most reliable cloud solutions in the market, with ample resources to be able to scale quickly.”

The launch into the German market is the next step in LeaseWeb’s strategy to further expand its global IaaS footprint. The platform was recently launched by LeaseWeb USA in the United States after being available in the Netherlands, where it experienced rapid uptake by German customers. Herke Plantenga, Managing Director of LeaseWeb Germany said: “Having listened carefully to feedback from our customers, we found that many wanted to build an infrastructure in Germany that could provide them with the flexibility and level of control that cloud offers. Our cloud products are ideal for a wide range of companies, including SaaS and PaaS providers, who will find that our infrastructure will facilitate their continuous growth. We are very excited to make these highly flexible services available on a platform physically hosted in Germany, with full local support.”

The introduction of the platform further strengthens LeaseWeb’s position in the DACH region as one of its leading hosting providers. Herke Plantenga, Managing Director LeaseWeb Germany added: “With the addition of LeaseWeb Cloud to our lineup of dedicated servers and colocation services we offer a full portfolio of hosting solutions, built on 15 years of experience and first-class infrastructure.”
