Press release Jun 13, 2024

 The Hague, 13 June 2024 — In 2007, Netrouting began its journey as a one-man show in a small room at Savvas Bout’s home. At the time, he was only 18 years old. “2024 marks a significant milestone in our history as we blow out 17 birthday candles and celebrate our rise and successes since our humble beginnings,” said Savvas Bout, founder and CEO of Netrouting.

Netrouting started by building servers from scratch, offering traditional dedicated servers and web hosting services. As the company grew, it faced the challenge of defining a distinct business strategy to stand out in the ever-evolving hosting industry.

By 2011, Netrouting had expanded into new markets, establishing a presence in Stockholm, Sweden, and Miami, Florida, while also introducing virtual server (VPS) offerings to its portfolio. In 2012, Netrouting incorporated the Data Facilities data center brand and strategically acquired one of the Datahouse facilities in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. This was followed by another acquisition in The Hague in 2014, solidifying Netrouting’s presence in the region. Between 2014 and 2018, Netrouting expanded its reach, adding strategic locations in Frankfurt, Bucharest, and Hong Kong. These expansions laid the groundwork for Netrouting’s growth and innovation in the future.

In 2018, Netrouting and its affiliated subsidiaries were acquired by U.S.-based data center operator Colohouse. Savvas Bout joined Colohouse as CTO, supporting the company in its growth and innovation with a strong focus on the U.S. market. In 2023, Savvas Bout acquired the European division of Colohouse, including the former Netrouting assets, and separated from the group. It marked a new chapter in the history of Netrouting, setting the stage for exciting developments in the years ahead.

I have immense pride in what we have accomplished and how far Netrouting has come in this highly competitive market. We have maintained the same entrepreneurial spirit, core values, and customer focus since starting this journey. We are committed to continuing to invest in our services, infrastructure, and partnerships with major technology companies,” concluded Bout.

As we celebrate our 17th anniversary, I’m proud to announce plans for a complete infrastructure upgrade for our network and data center. It includes the immediate release of our new website, which features added bare metal inventory and new cloud computing plans. Stay tuned for more announcements in the coming period as we are just getting started,” added Bout.
