Looking back at the Leaseweb Texel Airshow 2015

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:

Where man and machine meet, powerful things happen. And what’s more powerful than seeing an airplane tumble towards the ground, only to pull up again at the very last moment? There were some truly heart-stopping aerobatics this year, as our customers, partners and employees that attended will tell you.

So, see you at the next Leaseweb Texel Airshow?
