Harness the Power of the Public Cloud
The public cloud offers many advantages for your company’s web hosting: increased flexibility, efficiency, productivity, scalability and lower costs.
With its Azure services, Microsoft in particular offers flexible solutions for different types of IT services. With our hosting portfolio, we focus on our key skills: Creating and hosting experience and commerce platforms.
Let Us Take You to the Cloud
The transition to public cloud hosting places huge demands on any IT department. Our experts can advise you on the best approach. Replacing existing IT infrastructure with cloud services or migrating to the cloud will bring new challenges and require new concepts. We will support you in developing and implementing them.
The Hybrid Cloud
One option for a step-by-step transition is a hybrid application: the combination of public and private clouds to create a hybrid cloud. The hybrid cloud solution will help your company mitigate data and IT security risks – with sensitive data, in particular. At the same time, hybrid hosting will allow your company to profit from the scalability and availability of the public cloud.

We include your internal IT department in the set-up. Together with the previous provider, we draft a cutover and fallback plan and monitor the go-live. We also support you in adapting the service management processes and monitoring.
We host the web application in the following variants without distinction:
