Deployment country


Incorporated in 2015 and based in Mühldorf am Inn, Germany, pixx.io offers a personal cloud-based storage and media management solution. With the pixx.io platform, users can easily and safely store, manage and share photos and other media files with customers, colleagues and friends.

Business need
To launch its innovative platform for collecting, sharing and storing media, pixx.io needed a highly scalable hosting infrastructure. The company wanted to team with a trusted provider offering a high-performance hosting environment, exceptional support services and global data center presence, including a facility in Germany.

pixx.io teamed with IBM to provision a hybrid infrastructure designed to store data both on internal customer servers and in a virtual server environment in the SoftLayer® Frankfurt data center. As its business grows, the company anticipates extending its infrastructure with SoftLayer virtual and bare metal servers as needed.

By teaming with IBM to provision a SoftLayer® cloud hosting environment, pixx.io accelerated the launch of its new offering, speeding deployment by an estimated 50 percent. Plus, the SoftLayer platform’s extensive data center presence worldwide will support the company as it expands to new global markets, including China. Finally, pixx.io appreciates the strength of the IBM brand supporting its offering.
