Our “Internet Factory”
At the heart of our business is our powerful “Internet Factory” with around 10,500 employees, of which approx. 3,700 are engaged in product management, development, and at our data centers. Our “Internet Factory” applies the mechanisms of rationalized production to the internet business. Highly efficient development departments “manufacture” products which represent the backbone of our two business divisions, Access and Applications. These are then run on some 100,000 servers at our 20 data centers, 56 co-locations, and over 400 micro data centers. This “Internet Factory” enables us to extend, combine, and scale our product lines almost at will – and then to export them throughout the world.
United Internet also stands for high sales strength as well as for outstanding operational excellence with around 67 million customer accounts worldwide.
