  • or your own cloud.

Our strengths include automatic scaling and deployment automation as well as setting up and monitoring complex systems.

Make the Most of Our Managed Services

After the go-live, the focus shifts to the service level agreement in place (SLA). Our developers, system administrators and application support staff work around the clock to ensure the availability and security of your application. We employ monitoring tools tailored to the requirements of a highly available online shop. Our operations team is available 24/7 to address any issues, working quickly and proactively to ensure nonstop availability.

Our technical experts are in charge of tasks such as patching, vulnerability scanning and back-ups. We will install the necessary security patches in our software and regularly scan the infrastructure for vulnerabilities. New requirements to scale the processing capacities or increase availability are implemented swiftly and on schedule.

Our Forte

Our forte is the combination of infrastructure experience and application know-how. Our employees are trained to operate the systems used. They have extensive knowledge of customer-specific applications and actively apply DevOps principles.

Managed Services in the Cloud

Hybrid cloud solutions are a useful option to enable a step-by-step transition. These solutions combine public and private clouds to create a hybrid cloud. The hybrid cloud will help your company mitigate data and IT security risks. At the same time, hybrid hosting will allow your company to profit from the scalability and availability of the public cloud.

Private Cloud

We can host your web application in one of our powerful and highly secure data centres in Zurich. We are proud to offer high-quality data storage in Switzerland with the swiss hosting label. On request, we can also offer georedundant hosting in the private cloud.

Our Swiss data centre is located at the site of our partner Equinix in Zurich. Our hardware is in a separate, dedicated section of the data centre. In addition, we have redundant infrastructure in two Zurich locations to guarantee that your private cloud is as fail-safe as possible.

  • Physical Security: The physical security of the data centre is of utmost importance. In both locations, Equinix utilises an array of security equipment, techniques and procedures to control, monitor, and record access to the hardware.

  • Power Supply: The Equinix IBX data centres are equipped with energy systems. This includes built-in redundancy, full uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems with N+1 or greater redundancy levels, as well as local backup generator systems. This way, we can guarantee 99.999% power availability.

  • Cooling: A highly available HVAC system cools the most demanding high-performance environments. It ensures the ideal climate (ventilation, temperature and humidity) for an ideal operating environment and maximum availability.

  • Connectivity: One of the two Equinix locations operates as one of the biggest internet exchange points in Switzerland. Your company will benefit from an excellent network.

Public Cloud

The public cloud offers many advantages for your company’s web hosting: increased flexibility, efficiency, productivity, scalability and lower costs.
