About VEXXHOST and Our History
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 infrastructure-as-a-service OpenStack Public Cloud, Private Cloud, and Hybrid Cloud solutions to customers, from small businesses to enterprises across the world.
