IONOS Cloud (formerly ProfitBricks GmbH) is an IaaS provider from Germany. More than 10 years ago when we were looking for a new hosting partner we identified IONOS Cloud as an interesting match mainly for 2 reasons:

  • the company is located in Germany and takes data privacy very seriously
  • back then it was the only Cloud hosting provider that offered real-time

We gave the offering a test, and quickly became a value-added partner, and ever since IONOS Cloud is our primary choice for hosting our own infrastructure as well as our customers' infrastructure.

Over time IONOS Cloud moved a bit away from the IaaS point-of-view and these days they are also offering managed services (e.g. Managed Kubernetes, Managed databases) which are a plus for us and our use cases.
