ScaleUp Technologies was founded by Gihan Behrmann and Christoph Streit under the former brand name "internet4YOU" almost 20 years ago. It started a business success story by offering safe hosting, in Germany, for national and international business, its specialization in innovative open source technologies as well as by its individual hosting solutions in a close, face to face cooperation with customers.
Today, ScaleUp is home to over 2,000 websites and apps, supporting more than 900 customer projects — from forming solution ideas over full-service-implementation, finally to operations management of complex, multi-site business hosting solutions. Since 2011, ScaleUp has been operating its own open source cloud infrastructure based on OpenStack to enable scalable cloud setups (Public Cloud, Private Cloud, Hybrid Cloud). In autumn 2017, the Open Cloud offering was extended to a sister cloud in Berlin.
