ProfitBricks IaaS Joins Forces with 1&1 Internet SE

With Gartner forecasting the Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) market to nearly triple by the end of 2020, ProfitBricks wants to make sure its Managed Service Provider (MSP) customers are ready to capitalize on these fast-growing opportunities.

The company is already making strategic alliances to better position its MSP customers to take advantage of Gartner’s $34.6 billion IaaS growth predication in 2017. In 2016, the IaaS market was valued at just over $25 billion, but is expected to reach $71+ billion in 2020. For context, IaaS is currently the biggest cloud services growth area. Meaning, MSPs wanting to grow their bottom line quickly should consider incorporating IaaS into their existing solution line-up.

Being prepared to scale at a moment’s notice with a solution like ProfitBricks will give MSPs a competitive advantage in the high-growth IaaS space.

Better Together

To expand its enterprise cloud hosting services in Europe, Berlin-based IaaS company ProfitBricks is teaming up with fellow United Internet AG subsidiary 1&1 Internet SE. To make this partnership possible, United Internet AG went from partial to full ownership of the ProfitBricks platform on August 1, 2017.

From the beginning, United Internet has been a strong investor and a committed partner to ProfitBricks. The merger is now the foundation for an innovative and forward-looking expansion to become the cloud computing champion at European level.

This move makes it easier to unify ProfitBricks’ IaaS with 1&1’s webhosting services, since they’re now both fully owned by the same parent company and can freely align their services under one umbrella. Here are just a few of the benefits customers can expect to receive from this partnership:

  • Price stability: Our IaaS price/performance leadership position is strengthened by cross-company synergies and continuous cost-effectiveness.
  • Advanced IT infrastructure: Network performance is expanded by secure and fast high-performance data centers as well as high-performance fiber-optic networks.
  • Future orientated and innovative: The bundling of know-how allows us to offer you even better cloud services from a single source to provide MSPs the best professional cloud solution.
  • Extensive synergy potentials: MSPs will profit from dedicated data centers connections, an even better geo-redundant distribution of data centers as well as a larger developer pool.

Overall, this collaboration is going to pack even more value into an already competitive offering. Not long ago, ProfitBricks added an additional data center to the East Coast of the United States, and now the company is setting its sights on growing its data center presence in Europe, to give clients even more redundancy and confidence in service reliability.
