As one of the world’s leading cloud and hosting service providers, serving consumer, business, and developer users, 1&1’s award-winning products range from web hosting and domains to the provisioning of dedicated, virtual private and cloud servers, email, and e-commerce packages.
1&1 sought out a new storage vendor to remove the limitations and complexity of their traditional storage platform, both for customers and the operations team. Not only did the SolidFire storage platform greatly simplify end user cloud experiences, but it simultaneously reduced internal complexity — primarily thanks to SolidFire’s scale-out architecture and built-in automation.
