10 Years of VooServers

News & Technical Blog

Earlier this year we celebrated our 10 year anniversary, since our launch in March 2005 we have grown to be one of the most reliable and trusted providers not only in the UK but in Frankfurt and now New York. At the start we were just a part-time operation providing white box servers from a shared rack in a London datacentre to only a handful of clients, now are product portfolio has changed and we now have multiple racks in multiple datacentres around the world providing solutions to over 1800 clients. Below you will find a timeline of VooServers progress over the years with some of our key milestones.
