Our history

Company history

Beyond was founded in 2007 as the server division of a mobile content provider that boasted ``more than 8 billion page views per month'' and has steadily grown to this day, mainly providing physical server hosting/housing services. We have made progress step by step.

In the ten years since our founding in 2007, we have gone through many twists and turns.

Beyond, which started with a modest number of employees when it was first founded, is now supported by many customers, partners, and employees, and continues to grow and expand little by little. Based on our mission of ``making the world a little bit easier'', Beyond will continue to focus on expanding overseas through global expansion, and aim for even greater growth as a ``Kuroko'' in the IT/Web industry that is globally recognized. I will aim for it.
