It has been more than a year since team.blue was founded. And what an eventful year it was! In addition to the Italian Register Group, the Bulgarian Superhosting and the Turkish Natro have also joined the team.
This brings team.blue one step closer to becoming the largest European powerhouse in which leading tech companies share their knowledge, expertise and resources. The more than 1400 employees are thus able to innovate at a rapid pace and create the best tools with which more than 2 million customers in 15 European countries can get the most out of their digital existence.
Each new member not only reinforces this process, but also brings new insights and experiences from countries that were previously unknown territory. And these are exactly the right ingredients to (literally) keep pushing the boundaries. However, national partnerships should not be forgotten here. The stronger these are, the easier European cooperation will be in the near future.
team.blue NL is a forerunner in the national optimization process and has achieved a great deal with all Dutch team.blue members over the past year. Platforms have been shared, successful migrations have been completed and many websites have been overhauled to promote a uniform style. This has provided hundreds of thousands of Dutch customers with an even better user experience and the best-in-class tools. Of course, this would never have succeeded if all team.blue NL members had not made optimal use of each other's expertise, and of course still continue to do so.
In this piece we want to take a look at these areas of expertise and all the independent Dutch members of this promising powerhouse. This not only clarifies the reasons behind (future) joint actions, but also gives you a better picture of the potential behind all these enthusiastic collaborations. Let's quickly get to know the driving forces behind team.blue NL.
TransIP is located in Leiden and has around 100 colleagues. Every day they are committed to offering everyone the opportunity to move freely and independently in the digital world. It is therefore not surprising that the services are completely unmanaged: TransIP offers the best tools for the job, and you decide what you do with them! This focus on independence and freedom is not only reflected in the tools offered. For example, the control panel is designed in such a way that you have full control over your ordered products, including a powerful API with which you automate all functions. We also work hard every day to expand the Knowledge Base, where you can quickly find an answer to your questions yourself.
Although TransIP has traditionally also focused on web hosting and WordPress, the focus is on the tech-savvy customer who can freely tinker with their websites or applications on a VPS. TransIP's BladeVPSs are therefore one of the most powerful servers on the market. With regular feature updates and infrastructure improvements, a lot of great things are waiting for the diehard developer. For example, Fast Installs were recently introduced, allowing you to easily skip time-consuming steps in the installation and configuration of your VPSs via cloud configuser data and the option to add SSH keys!

Another team.blue member who is a big fan of VPS's is - the name says it all - CloudVPS! The Rotterdam-based company was founded in 2006. With a focus on cloud computing, it was one of the first providers in Europe to embrace OpenStack. This popular open source cloud platform makes it easy to deploy and scale private and public clouds. CloudVPS has made several improvements to OpenStack over the years that companies benefit from. For example, high availability is built in as standard, whereby an instance is restarted on another node in the event of a hardware failure. Furthermore, all components are redundant, your data is stored three times and you can choose from three availability zones. These additions and years of experience mean that CloudVPS is today the specialist in the field of OpenStack.
Until recently, you could also go to CloudVPS for a VPS, but to focus all energy on OpenStack, it was decided to run the VPS service through a team.blue member who in turn puts all the energy into their VPS -platform. Naturally, this has become TransIP.

Signet was founded in 1996 and is located in the modern and inspiring business park Strijp-T in Eindhoven, where you will find around 30 colleagues. Where other team.blue members focus on providing a stable and secure platform for deploying websites, applications or entire office environments, you will find Signet a step earlier in the internet chain. You can go there for all your connectivity needs in the field of business internet, business telephony and smart network solutions to, among other things, connect multiple business locations.
An interesting solution is, for example, Fiber Care, with which, in the event of one of the primary connections failing, incoming and outgoing traffic is automatically transported via a backup connection. This way your location or service remains online, without you having to make provisions yourself. Also worth mentioning are the solution for anti-DDoS and the unique way in which Signet can connect office locations via multiple networks, safely separated from the internet.
Something that Signet is especially proud of are the many partnerships that have been concluded over the years with the best Dutch and European connectivity providers. For example, Signet draws on no fewer than 40 local, national and international partners to conclude network solutions and always advises the best infrastructure combinations for the needs of the customer. This unique working method even makes it possible to combine multiple providers to create maximum availability in your network or to link different international locations together.

VDX, with 20 colleagues operating from Deventer, has become one of the best providers in the field of web hosting since its foundation in 2000. Regardless of whether you are a business user, a real techie or a home user, the VDX supporters always know how to speak your language. In addition to the added value of customer support, reliability is just as important. This is reflected in, among other things, support phone availability of no less than seven days and 100% uptime in the past year (updates excluded). The high TrustPilot score of 4.8 / 5 is therefore well deserved.
The VDX working method has not gone unnoticed by a few other team.blue members, who saw in the hosting provider a suitable partner to entrust their web hosting packages to. This creates more room for these members to focus even better on their specialties while the web hosting customers only improve. A win-win for everyone!
