Previously, the founders of Sosias have been dependent on self-managed servers provided by a single host. This meant that the effort of maintenance fell to them and their opportunities to grow were limited. “If we want to keep growing, we need a platform that offers future perspectives. A platform that can keep up with our growth,” explains Maximilian Reinhard. Growth – for Sosias, this has three dimensions: First, the database itself should be continuously expanded, for example, with data from European companies. Second, Sosias wants to use the database to offer its customers additional innovative services. Third, they want to acquire new customer groups. The team wants to be technically prepared for these additional requirements and have the ability to react to the expected increasing load – without having to make advance payment for services. Aside from this, the team at Sosias had one additional requirement for the platform: “Since we want to realize new business ideas that incorporate customer data as well, the platform has to offer maximum data confidentiality.”
