About Proteon

Some of you might be looking for Linux, Drupal or Liferay managed hosting, which Proteon has been specialized in since 1995. But, we are no longer living in the 90s and we thought that it was time for a new approach to hosting. Conceived by Google and perfected by Red Hat, Proteon presents its new and enhanced Container Platform based on Kubernetes and OpenShift. Please do take a look around and see what our new solution can do for you. Feel free to contact us to learn about the advantages of the new era of hosting.


Drupal hosting

Drupal is often used to develop large web applications. This requires a special hosting setup that is aimed to support large numbers of visitors and traffic. Proteon customizes the application hosting to ensure high performance, high availability and zero downtime. With over 20 years of experience managing large Drupal infrastructures, we know exactly what your Drupal site needs to perform optimally.

And we have also learned what you need in order to focus on your application development. We monitor your application 24/7 and intervene if the performance of your portal goes down. With our 24/7 support desk, you can work on what you do best while we take care of the rest.

Drupal is best hosted on containers due to the high-availability, automatic scaling, and automatic disaster recovery features. Try it out with our free trial.

Story behind Proteon

The name Proteon has been chosen a long time ago since we have been in the IT business since 1995. But, our new product adds a whole new definition to it. To explain this, we have to take you on a short scientific journey. Proteon can be traced back to a proton. A proton is a part of an atom with positive electric charge. Together with neutrons, they form the heart of the atom. An atom is, as you may know, the smallest part a matter. Many atoms together, form ‘a thing’. What that thing is, depends on your observation. So, what does this say about us and our product? We developed a Container Engine that is the proton to your development process. The core of your environments that is charged with positive electricity to help you optimize your development workflow and built outstanding projects.

Our logo is based on the same values as our name. The cube presents our Container Engine, the core of our product. The cogwheel surrounding the cube stands for building and progress, but it also functions as a layer of security to protect the cube. We take care of the whole picture. From setting up the core so you can develop and deploy without delay, to managing your environments and their safety.

Our team

The members of our team all have their own specialism. And when we combine all of our knowledge, we believe that we can change the current technology landscape for the good. Using Open Source software is in our DNA because we love to work together with a community of like-minded people. We believe that the best results come from cooperation. We strive to never stop learning and regularly send our developers to training camp to learn about new technologies that might improve our services. But, we also attend community events and conferences because we think that it is important to be visible and approachable. For our customers and the community.
