Our Mission & Vision
The mission of VEXXHOST is to become one of the world’s leading cloud computing companies. We believe in offering businesses more freedom through the use of an open-source platform, providing infrastructure solutions without the burden of license-fees and vendor lock-ins.

We believe in providing services that strive for security, quality, performance, and innovation while allowing businesses to save money. For this reason, we only use enterprise-grade hardware and certified solutions, work with data centers undergoing some of the strictest regulations, and have a team of experts dispersed all over the world for 24/7 monitoring. We continuously offer the latest product upgrades, look for new innovative tools, and provide management of these tools as a service for a hassle-free experience. Finally, we believe in the power of choice. With nine years of experience with OpenStack, we can offer a large variety of projects with your cloud infrastructure along with multiple managed solutions, helping you get exactly where you want to be.
Established in 2006, VEXXHOST was initially a web hosting provider offering services from shared hosting to VPS. However, with the advancement of cloud technologies, VEXXHOST made the decision to move to more innovative options such as cloud hosting. This leap to cloud-based hosting garnered a positive response, encouraging VEXXHOST to invest further in cloud-based solutions. In 2011, VEXXHOST adopted OpenStack software for its infrastructure. Since then, VEXXHOST has been an active contributor and an avid user of OpenStack. Currently, VEXXHOST provides OpenStack Public Cloud and Private Cloud infrastructure and services, along with a range of Cloud Solutions to customers, from small businesses to enterprises across the world.
VEXXHOST is committed to working with its users to help architect, configure and optimize their cloud infrastructure in order to reduce expenses and increase productivity. VEXXHOST also delivers a high level of expertise to clients, enabling them to focus on their core competencies.
