Freiburg, February 2, 2017. virtual minds is accelerating its growth course – and is also setting the course in terms of infrastructure. Following the recent takeover of data management specialist The ADEX, the Freiburg-based technology and media holding company has acquired a data center in the “In der Steele” business park in the south of Düsseldorf via its subsidiary myLoc managed IT AG. This adds a second, redundant location for real-time parallel operation in optimal proximity to virtual minds’ data center park in the north of Düsseldorf.
With the acquisition of a further data center, virtual minds is responding to the continuing increase in demand for its ad technology solutions and its full-tech stack offering for programmatic digital marketing. On the other hand, the technology specialists are expanding their infrastructure and setting up multi-redundancy locations to meet the high requirements for high-quality and secure system availability at all times. The new location offers growth security for the coming years and can be expanded on a modular basis in the future. In the final expansion stage, there will be space for over 15,000 servers.
“virtual minds has experienced a steep growth curve in recent years and has no less ambitious growth plans for the coming years. We will greatly expand our market position both organically and through acquisitions. To achieve this, the technological and infrastructural basis must be set up with foresight and be future-proof. In recent months, we have examined many locations and also intensively evaluated the alternative of a completely new building. The ‘In der Steele’ business park has an excellent infrastructure, both in terms of electricity and fiber optic connections. With the acquisition and future expansion, we are therefore ideally equipped for the tasks ahead of us,” explains Andreas Kleiser, CEO of virtual minds AG.
