How was it possible …
that Macnews.de remained stable online in the early 2000s, while a rush of Apple fans wanted to see The Next Big Thing, which Steve Jobs introduces on his keynote?
Macnews founder Marc Korthaus could not avoid this question because of the growing number of visitors. The moment he employed more server admins than editors was the birth of SysEleven GmbH. Since 2007 we have assumed responsibility for ensuring that applications run with performance, stability and security – from online shops and business applications to complex applications.
For optimal basic conditions we operate our data centers ourselves and even have our own fiber optic ring. As performance and availability requirements increase, we are continuously and sustainably expanding our portfolio: We provide our customers with technologies with which they can continue to expect flawless application operation in the future.
Our success proves us right: Throughout the company’s 10 year history SysEleven has remained owner-managed, and employs over 100 staff today and will continue to grow in the coming years.
SysEleven: Engage · Build · Run
Marc Korthaus founds SysEleven GmbH from Macnews: The company provides server resources via its own data center. One of the first customers of SysEleven: Golem.de.
With the boom in e-commerce, more and more online shops are approaching SysEleven. SysEleven specializes in particularly elastic, high-performance setups for e-commerce projects.
Fiber optic made in Berlin: SysEleven commissions its own fiber optic network and connects offices to the high-speed Internet. The network is one among few prepared for 100 G. SysEleven continues to expand its infrastructure in the following years and connects more and more data centers and buildings.
A second data center improves distribution and performance as larger and larger customers come to SysEleven with ever greater demands. SysEleven begins to prepare for the certification ISO 27001 pursuant to the IT baseline protection according to the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI).
Jens Ihlenfeld (founder of Golem.de) joins SysEleven as Managing Director.
SysEleven receives the certification ISO 27001 according to the IT baseline protection of the Federal Office for Information Security. At the same time, the Internet Service Provider collects further know-how in application operation beyond e-commerce projects.
With the SysEleven Stack, SysEleven presents its own OpenStack-based cloud and offers it as Infrastructure as a Service.
More than just Kubernetes: SysEleven launches MetaKube, a managed service for container orchestration, which, supplemented by essential meta features, forms an all-round carefree package.
