Datapath.io was founded in 2015 by by Sebastian Spies, a Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) expert, and Sascha Coldewey, a serial entrepreneur with extensive experience in the e-commerce space. As a start-up in the area of SaaS and IaaS companies, which focuses on network performance optimization and Internet traffic, the main goal is to make the Internet faster. Companies such as Adjust, Cynapsis Interactive and N26 already benefit from Datapath.io's solution. The offices are located in Mainz, Berlin and San Francisco.
Datapath.io pioneered a new NetDevOps approach to network optimization, which seeks to include internet connections at the hosting provider. It allows NetDevOps to programmatically leverage network switches to improve performance.
Datapath.io monitors the global Internet and finds the fastest internet routes available. Then, with no additional transit costs, routes internet traffic over the faster routes to end users, improving network performance up to 60%. Datapath.io replaces the traditionally reactive and manual procedures of network optimization with a completely automated solution.
