Coming up with idea and drafting first concept
During the last 15 years we have been able to gather lots of experience in the hosting and cloud market. We did create many products and services, most of which are still successful today.
In 2014 it became apparent to us how complex and complicated most cloud products are from a user perspective, let alone the pricing models. They are far away from being transparent and are hard to understand. Our partners, customers and employees enjoyed using these products less every single day, driven by their non-intuitive interfaces and the excessive need for training .
We realized that the positive development of the IaaS and PaaS market is a great chance to make our vision of an easy-to-use, intuitive, highly available and flexible cloud service become reality. We knew that we could build cutting-edge technology. It is important for us to have users who love using gridscale and we are very pleased about the great feedback we get from our users every single day.
