Story of Cloudways

Providing the best Cloud Platform to the Hosting World with Convenience and Ease

Founded in 2011

Cloudways is a Cloud Platform (PaaS) that offers an extremely easy way to deploy, monitor, and manage high performance applications on top of major cloud infrastructure providers.

50+ Employees

We scaled exponentially and then everyone joined in. The team kept on growing and will continue to grow.

Who Created It?

Who Created Cloudways? It is the brainchild of 4 guys: Pere Hospital, Aaqib Gadit, Uzair Gadit, and Umair Gadit.

Do You Party?

All work and no play gives the cloud a dull look. We work hard to party harder. It was just last year when we danced to live streams of Tomorrowland!

Do You Work?

During the past 12 months, we had a stupendous growth rate of more than 550%. Our success speaks volumes about the amount of work and effort we put in.

We Don’t Stop Lovin’

Yes, we are growing at a fast pace, but we seldom let any of our customers leave! We do not like it single bit. We love our customers and we value each and every one of them.

Tea or Coffee?

Both! We actually complement both these beverages with a lot of Donuts around the year! We love our eating out! It drives us to achieve our goals!

Where You Located?

Cloudways is incorporated in Malta, along with offices in UAE and Spain. Yes, we love SUNNY days.
