bee42’s goal is to create sustainable software supply chains that accelerate delivery and improve the quality of software systems. In 2012, Peter Rossbach founded the company with the idea of creating better IT systems in mind, mainly through sharing knowledge and training people. Today, bee42 works in four main areas: beehive blueprint, training, consulting, and community.
The beehive blueprint offers services that use the “Container as a Service” paradigm with a Kubernetes reference implementation to help customers with migrating their services to the cloud. The beehive blueprint also offers a Kubernetes subscription, which allows customers to create and manage their clusters in the cloud.
The bee42 offers training in Kubernetes, Docker, Serverless, Microservices, Cloud Native Projects like Rook and Prometheus or GitLab/CI with experienced trainers and consultants. These training sessions are offered regularly in several cities in Germany or on site.
The consulting division offers support with agile transition concepts and technologies such as continuous delivery, cloud infrastructure and container technology to create amazing cloud native systems.
The bee42 crew is a part of many open source communities and is highly interested in sharing knowledge. They organize the community conference DevOps Gathering and multiple Docker, Kubernetes, and DevOps meetups in Bochum, the heart of the Ruhr valley.

THOUGHTS ON FUNK:HAUS
"Our hope is that everyone who comes here leaves inspired, and that when they return, they bring back even more [inspiration]"
PETER ROSSBACH | FOUNDER
Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
When branding the company, founder Peter Rossbach took inspiration from the renowned The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy novels. In the science fiction series, the number 42 is postulated to be the “answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything.” The search for more efficient, automatized solutions is at the heart of bee42’s mission, making the reference to the number 42 clearly relevant.
"If you're working on earth, our mission is to bring you to the next galaxy"
