First of all, how is ArvanCloud doing in these COVID-19 Times?
Arvancloud Team: Like many other businesses around the world, at the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak, we were and still are worried not only about the ArvanCloud family but the whole world. Second, to that, we were also concerned about ArvanCloud’s business.
ArvanCloud, is an internationally active business, that had the potential of teleworking in its DNA, decided to start teleworking for all staff; thus, we rapidly limited working days at the offices and implemented strict measures for working in the campuses.
With this method, ArvanCloud successfully maintained the safety of the staff and their relatives while continuing the business. Also, to our surprise, this change boosted the productivity of the teams. The high tech nature of our business allowed us to do this.

How the Coronavirus Pandemic affects your Business, and how are you Coping?
Arvancloud Team: In the beginning, COVID-19 shocked everyone, and no one could imagine how life would be with quarantine and all of that. But with the extension of the lockdown periods around the world, more and more businesses started to immigrate to the digital sphere, and thus the demand for Cloud services skyrocketed. Of course, we welcome this shift. Considering that we are a digital company, it wasn’t that hard for us to cope with the decentralization of our work structure.
Did you have to make Difficult Choices, and what are the Lessons Learned?
Arvancloud Team: Difficult choices are a part of everyday business, and for ArvanCloud, we have to make choices every minute to keep running our business.

The measure of our success is the satisfaction of our valued customers, and for that, we sometimes have to make hard decisions.
How do you Project ArvanCloud in the Future?
Arvancloud Team: ArvanCloud aims to actively provide Cloud services to customers around the world. We have targeted a good share of the CDN market in the next 5 years. Although we are young, our services have proven to be of high quality, and our products can compete with our competitors. At ArvanCloud, we all are determined to develop better solutions and provide higher quality services every day. With our talented team, we see ArvanCloud among the top 10 Cloud providers soon.
Who are your Competitors? And how do you plan to stay in the Game?
Arvancloud Team: We see Cloudflare and DigitalOcean as our primary competitors; however, ArvanCloud offers more features comparing to both. A combination of products and various plans places us in the position we deserve among our competitors. ArvanCloud is also a more cost-effective provider in most cases when compared to the two, as we can provide Total Cloud Services. We keep developing and expanding into new markets and helping more SMEs around the globe achieve better RoI for their Cloud expenditures.
