1&1 IONOS makes data matter

Find out how one customer-centric tech company is helping businesses put data to work

Apr 25, 2019


Data Visionaries know the power of:

  • Customer centricity
  • Personalized service
  • AI and machine learning

Alex Vierschrodt is in the business of being data driven. As the Head of Commercial Product Management, Server, at 1&1 IONOS, Vierschrodt and his team empower customers every day. 1&1 IONOS is committed to making forward-thinking technology like AI more accessible than ever.

Founded in 1988, 1&1 Internet sprang to life with the goal of simplifying and personalizing information technology for their customers. After rising to become one of the largest web hosting companies in the world, 1&1 Internet merged its hosting, applications, and server product lines with the cloud infrastructure solutions from ProfitBricks to form 1&1 IONOS.

Headquartered in Germany, 1&1 IONOS is now regarded as one of the most customer-driven cloud infrastructure providers in Europe—serving both small shops and enterprise-level businesses alike. The company manages more than 8 million customer contracts, hosts more than 12 million domains all over the world and has over 30 years of experience with a focus on future-proof cloud technology and personalized service.

“We are the first cloud services company to provide a free personal consultant to each customer,” said Vierschrodt. “The personal consultant learns about your business and can help you monetize your data.”

For example, 1&1 IONOS helped client Delivery Hero—the world’s largest food delivery network—use data to better serve their customers. With more than 1 million orders served each day, Delivery Hero relies on its vast data set to cater to its customers’ needs.

As one of the top hosting and cloud partners of choice for small- and medium-sized businesses, 1&1 IONOS chose NetApp as the only partner that could properly assist its diverse customers.

“We were looking for one single vendor to serve our heterogeneous customer base,” said Vierschrodt. “Using the NetApp portfolio we had a lever to turn to high performance or high cost efficiency without exchanging hardware or switching the platform.”

Always looking at what’s next, the team at 1&1 IONOS also knows the value of AI and machine learning for their customers—not only making it available, but also making it as easy as possible for each and every user.

Vierschrodt explains: “We see it as a big opportunity to leverage the simplicity of the NetApp solution to help our customers to become even more successful in our cloud.”
