The story behind the Dynamo6 name

<< Back to listing

Back in February 2012, after many hours and days of thinking, looking up domain names and many ‘post it’ notes on the wall later, Dynamo6 stuck the most with us.

The ‘6’ or ‘six degrees of separation’ is the idea that everyone is on average approximately six steps away, by way of introduction, from any other person in the world, so that a chain of “a friend of a friend” statements can be made, on average, to connect any two people in six steps or fewer. Today new technologies bring us all even closer.

The word actually derived from thinking about electric generators or dynamo’s and its association with the words ‘generator’ or ‘generation’. Cloud computing and supporting platforms are in fact becoming power generators of computing power for us all to use. We use these platforms to deliver our products, services and solutions. Coincidentally ‘Dynamo’ is also a famous football team in Croatia of which one of the founders happens to be an avid supporter.

We are also very happy to have a registered trademark for the name and the brand ‘Dynamo6’. And the rest is history.
