We are excited to announce our partnership with Hetzner Cloud, a new cloud provider joining Cloud 66 family. With over 20 years experience and a number of custom-built datacenters located in Germany and Finland, Hetzner is a great deployment option for Cloud 66 users.
Why has Cloud 66 partnered with Hetzner?
With the German territorial data storage regulation and the European implementation of GDPR, partnership with Hetzner Cloud was a no brainer. Hetzner is one of Europe's leading datacenter operators. It offers fast and cost-effective cloud servers, perfect for Cloud 66 users.
Like Cloud 66, Hetzner is developer-centric platform. Hetzner's focus on high performance motivates it to constantly improve its products. This closely corresponds with the price-to-performance ratios.
Lastly, we love the fact that Hetzner takes responsibility for the environment and uses energy from renewable sources to power its datacenters.
