Denodo was founded in 1999 by Angel Viña, at the time a Full Professor at the University of ACoruña, Spain. Denodo moved its headquarters to the Silicon Valley in 2005, and operates globally from its offices in Palo Alto, New York, Chicago and Boise in the USA, and London, Munich, Madrid and A Coruña in the EU, as well as through a network of global and local partners worldwide.

In the years of the dotcom madness it took audacity to imagine how to integrate data without moving it from its original repository. The IT world was thrilled by the revolutionary idea of connecting content through hyperlinks. The ability to create webs of searchable and browsable documents. And the capacity to reach fragmented information quickly and easily through simple applications such as search engines and internet browsers. Far from the hype of internet fever, Denodo envisioned a middleware technology that could bring the flexibility of the web to the rigid world of enterprise data in corporate data centers. Denodo focused on building a data virtualization product with the capability to query, browse, search and manage corporate data. All this, without the need to move data, replicate data, or code. This dream became a reality. We like to call it the Denodo Platform.

 Amazon Web Services

In 2006, Amazon Web Services (AWS) began offering IT infrastructure services to businesses in the form of web services — now commonly known as cloud computing. One of the key benefits of cloud computing is the opportunity to replace up-front capital infrastructure expenses with low variable costs that scale with your business. With the Cloud, businesses no longer need to plan for and procure servers and other IT infrastructure weeks or months in advance. Instead, they can instantly spin up hundreds or thousands of servers in minutes and deliver results faster.

Today, Amazon Web Services provides a highly reliable, scalable, low-cost infrastructure platform in the cloud that powers hundreds of thousands of businesses in 190 countries around the world. With data center locations in the U.S., Europe, Brazil, Singapore, Japan, and Australia, customers across all industries are taking advantage of the following benefits:

Low Cost

AWS offers low, pay-as-you-go pricing with no up-front expenses or long-term commitments. We are able to build and manage a global infrastructure at scale, and pass the cost saving benefits onto you in the form of lower prices. With the efficiencies of our scale and expertise, we have been able to lower our prices on 15 different occasions over the past four years.

Agility and Instant Elasticity

AWS provides a massive global cloud infrastructure that allows you to quickly innovate, experiment and iterate. Instead of waiting weeks or months for hardware, you can instantly deploy new applications, instantly scale up as your workload grows, and instantly scale down based on demand. Whether you need one virtual server or thousands, whether you need them for a few hours or 24/7, you still only pay for what you use.

Open and Flexible

AWS is a language and operating system agnostic platform. You choose the development platform or programming model that makes the most sense for your business. You can choose which services you use, one or several, and choose how you use them. This flexibility allows you to focus on innovation, not infrastructure.


AWS is a secure, durable technology platform with industry-recognized certifications and audits: PCI DSS Level 1, ISO 27001, FISMA Moderate, FedRAMP, HIPAA, and SOC 1 (formerly referred to as SAS 70 and/or SSAE 16) and SOC 2 audit reports. Our services and data centers have multiple layers of operational and physical security to ensure the integrity and safety of your data.
