Over 14 years experience of hosting
Hello, I’m Sami!
Our story began when all three of my self built servers moved from under my table to a real data center in 2002. This was an early precursor of Pilvia.
My colleagues were building web sites and I was the guy who managed and hosted them at my servers.
As time went by I noticed that I wasn’t hosting only websites, but also complex systems with multiple servers.
My reputation started to grow and soon others got wind of a “server dude” to whom quality of a service, and fast response time was more important than life!
Down-to-earth approach was worth it
As a 30 year old server professional I started to wonder what else other than IT could life possibly offer to me.
I met my future wife and we moved to country side, where running water came in by literally running.
Seven years of country life; organic farming, pigs, chopping logs and timber constructing. Two lovely daughters were also born and alongside the hosting business was growing steadily.
Pilvia in the path of growth
I decided to invest seriously to the hosting business. I found partners to my side and we started to build what we know today as Pilvia — A company that will change your view about hosting services.
