We are currently setting up for Cloud Expo Asia and Cloud Security Expo that will take place in Singapore, on October 12-13. If you’re attending the conference, we hope you’ll stop by our stand (K7) and talk to our engineers about migration to the cloud or the use of hybrid hosting. Furthermore, we will also be hosting the following two sessions:
DDoS mitigation: A LeaseWLetechnical deep-dive (Weds 12th October 2016, 10:40 – 11:05)

Preparations are in full swing for the newest, freshest event on the tech calendar: TechSummit Berlin 2016. It’s a must-see happening for programmers, developers or anyone in DevOps, SysAdmin or IT management as top speakers from leading tech and retail companies share tips and secrets on designing systems for scalability.

All the invited speakers have years of hands-on experience developing powerful tech solutions in the real world. Taking the summit’s theme “Designing for Scalability” as a starting point, here are just some of the talks to look forward to:
LeaseWeb provides powerful hosting infrastructure that is blazingly fast, has maximum uptime and behaves in a reliable manner. This is an essential part of our service, because just like pilots rely on the systems of their aircraft, our customers trust our solutions to work without a fault.
Why do I draw this comparison? Well, LeaseWeb was originally founded by two pilots. Way back in 1997, Con Zwinkels and Laurens Rosenthal flew huge airplanes from one continent to the other. During their free time, they developed a commercial website which eventually evolved into the global hosting provider we know and love today. Now, I’ll save the full company history for another day, but whether it’s steering complex machines through the air or setting up complex machines in data centers, reliable technology has always formed the heart and soul of LeaseWeb.
That’s why we were once again the sponsor of one of Europe’s greatest airshows, the aptly named LeaseWeb Texel Airshow:
Event sponsoring is one of the strategies that companies can follow when they seek to advertise, increase brand awareness and lead generation, or find new employees. Although not always easy to measure, it is a strategy that works. This is probably the reason why so often you see the same companies sponsoring so many different events.
Wow… Just wow… That’s the best description of the LeaseWeb Texel Airshow 2012. LeaseWeb was the proud head sponsor of this unique event, which took place on the 28th of July on the island of Texel, the Netherlands. We had been working like mad men (and women) in the weeks leading up to day of the show, designing t-shirts, ordering fifteen thousand miniature versions of the LeaseWeb Extra 330LT, and doing quite a bit of PR-activity to attract attention to the event. We also invited many customers and partners to enjoy the spectacle with us. And, of course, all our employees were welcome too, whether they worked in our Dutch, German or American offices.
Things are heating up for the LeaseWeb Texel Airshow on the 28th of July! While it’s still more than a month away, we’re quite busy making all the arrangements for our guests, making sure they’ll have a wonderful experience. Here’s a quick overview of what to expect on that summer day and how you can win a VIP treatment as a guest of LeaseWeb.
“In the fight against cancer, both patients and their loved ones feel a huge sense of helplessness. Cancer is everywhere. Fighting it seems pointless. Alpe d’HuZes was created with the aim to empower people to convert the sense of powerlessness, caused by cancer, into one of strength. We achieve this by motivating as many people as possible to constantly challenge and expand their boundaries.” Part of the mission of Alpe d’HuZes.
LeaseWeb, a leading global hosting provider, is sponsoring StopBadware (www.stopbadware.org) to make the internet safer through the prevention, mitigation, and remediation of malware websites. LeaseWeb will provide hosted server infrastructure, physical capacity and redundancy for the network and services, to support the growth of the global initiative.
Did you know the Netherlands has 14 small islands in the north, collectively known as the West Frisian Islands? Only 5 of those are actually inhabited, the most populous of which is the island of Texel (pronounced: Tessel). Why would we tell you this? Well, after a long absence, one of the most spectacular shows in the Netherlands takes place again at Texel Airport this year: The LeaseWeb Texel Airshow!
