Josef Grill

Founder of WEDOS

Josef is a true IT professional, lawyer, pilot, passionate fisherman, and visionary. He built the largest hosting company in the Czech Republic, which surpassed all competitors in just 31 months. Since then, WEDOS's local market share has continued to grow steadily. With over 315 thousand customers worldwide, WEDOS is one of the largest hosting companies in Central Europe. Thanks to Josef's vision, WEDOS began building a data center in 2016 where servers are cooled in tanks with oil, and waste heat is used to warm a local city swimming pool. This makes it one of the world's most eco-friendly and economical data centers.

Currently, Josef is fully committed to building the WEDOS Global decentralized network. This network provides the infrastructure needed to mitigate large DDoS attacks, speed up website response times, and in the future, WEDOS plans to run other services on top of it as a Content Delivery Network (CDN).
