    Gunzenhausen/Germany – 04. July 2012

    Hetzner Online has been ranked among the 50 fastest growing companies in Bavaria for the second time. The Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs paid tribute to those companies which have demonstrated especially strong growth and an above-average increase in terms of employee numbers and turnover with the "Bavaria's best 50" award last Monday. 

    Based in Gunzenhausen, Bavaria, Hetzner Online AG operates modern high-performance data centers at two data center parks in Germany. The company has been offering Internet products and services since 1997. Webhosting packages, leased servers and colocation service facilities, for the housing of client-own server equipment, are offered on over 15,000 square meters of space. 

    Hetzner Online operates a three-shift system to care for customers from over 120 countries. 

    The consistent focus of the company's own data center park on availability and energy efficiency has served as a basis for corporate growth in recent years. A modular and standardized concept of construction has made it possible for new data centers to be built on the green field in less than six months. 

    The increasing shift of IT processes to the Internet as well as the success of eCommerce necessitated expansion in terms of new data center capacity. A state-of-the-art data center park is currently being built in Nuremberg with room for up to 32,000 servers. The 40,000 square meter site has the potential for more than 150,000 servers to be permanently connected to the Internet there in future. 

    Christian Fitz, spokesman for Hetzner Online, accepted the award from Bavarian Minister of State for Economic Affairs Martin Zeil at an awards ceremony in the imperial ballroom of the Residenz Palace in Munich.
