cloudbuddies GmbH merges with the Ulm-based AWS Cloud Solution Provider Innovations ON GmbH
Munich, 19. December 2019

cloudbuddies underpins its ambitions to become one of the leading managed public cloud solution providers in the hyperscaler market in german-speaking countries

Top news in the hyperscaler segment. The Munich-based managed public cloud solutions provider cloudbuddies GmbH, founded by Oliver Schallhorn and Nils Kaufmann in July this year, is merging with the Ulm-based AWS advanced partner Innovations ON GmbH with immediate effect. The Swabians, who have been awarded AWS DevOps and industrial software competencies, have been successful cloud consulting and training providers, and high-flyers in the public cloud solution provider environment since 2018. Both companies offer their services to customers from the upper middle class and enterprise segment.

Together with cloudbuddies, already AWS public sector and advanced partner with a focus on 24/7 operation, IoT, machine learning and web services, one of the leading managed public cloud solutions provider & public cloud consulting providers in the DACH region will be created for AWS. Tom Simon, founder and CEO of Innovations ON, will remain managing director at Innovations ON in the new joint structure and will form the management board together with cloudbuddies founders and managing directors Oliver Schallhorn, Nils Kaufmann and Dagmar Ziegler.


Tom Simon, founder and managing director of Innovations ON GmbH: “We have had a great first year and have actually achieved much more than we could have imagined when we founded Innovations ON in 2018. The speed, the financial requirements and also the demand from our customers are brutally great for a young company, as are the opportunities. At this point in time, I have made a conscious decision for cloudbuddies, because together, the famous formula 1+1=3, which we have always strived for, will really apply. Like us, the company pursues a clear and innovative strategy exclusively on the public cloud and is on a strong path of growth. However, it is crucial that we are independent and able to remain agile in the face of constantly changing market conditions and customer requirements. The principles and set-up of cloudbuddies are a perfect match for our own and together we will create the best opportunities for both our customers and employees and that’s what ultimately matters. These two must ultimately be the winners – then we have done everything right. ”


Nils Kaufmann, founder and managing director of cloudbuddies GmbH: “As proven AWS experts, Tom Simon and his experienced Innovations ON team are our absolute partner of choice, both in terms of orientation as well as their canon of values, which fits perfectly into our portfolio. Together we will significantly expand our circle of excellence and create fantastic new opportunities for both our customers and ourselves in terms of scalability and a sensibly expanded service offering”.


Oliver Schallhorn, founder and managing director of cloudbuddies GmbH: “Managed public cloud services will become increasingly important for customers in both the SME and enterprise segments over the next few years – this is where we want to be at the forefront together. At the same time, due to the complexity of the offerings and the sometimes extremely high demands of technical know-how, many companies are dependent on support in setting up and operating hyperscaler infrastructures. I am therefore very pleased to have experienced and distinguished AWS enthusiasts on board with the Innovations ON team, from whose expertise customers will most certainly benefit. With absolute customer focus and the necessary financial strength and a clear focus on AWS, without ignoring the other three relevant Hyperscalers, we want to establish cloudbuddies as a significant player in the market segment of managed public cloud providers”.
