Today, we’re excited to announce a new partnership with ProfitBricks, a Berlin-based, leading Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) company. ProfitBricks, founded in 2010, has rapidly expanded its second-generation cloud computing footprint in Europe and the U.S. It’s recent price reduction and continued performance leadership puts ProfitBricks in a position as cloud computing’s price/performance leader.

The partnership between SendGrid and ProfitBricks addresses increasing demand from ProfitBricks’ customers to send transactional email from their web applications hosted in ProfitBricks’ data centers. SendGrid will provide ProfitBricks’ customers access to all the necessary email deliverability capabilities for their applications via APIs, allowing them to focus on their business and application instead of setting up and managing their own SMTP servers.

With our respective services now integrated, developers have a great way to build their applications and ensure their apps’ email gets delivered, all hosted on ProfitBricks. ProfitBricks’ flexible and performance focused cloud architecture allows developers to pay only for the cloud computing resources that they actually consume. ProfitBricks’ innovation also includes multiple methods for creating and managing virtual data centers including a unique drag-and-drop Data Center Design tool and APIs.

“This is an exciting time for SendGrid as we continue to implement our global expansion strategy and build our presence in the fast-growing cloud computing market,” said Jim Franklin, CEO, SendGrid. “We are delighted to be working closely with ProfitBricks, a recognized market-leader in IaaS innovation. I am confident that our partnership will grow and mature as we work together to help businesses solve email deliverability challenges globally.”

For ProfitBricks’ customers, there’s a great way to get started with SendGrid’s leading email deliverability infrastructure and build web applications on ProfitBricks’ cloud computing platform.  Simply create a SendGrid account and then get started with the SendGrid tutorial for ProfitBricks, found here, to easily integrate SendGrid into your applications.
