The perfect Managed Cloud for your business

As a Managed Cloud Service Provider, we help you solve your digital challenges. By responding as quickly as possible to current requirements and offering an individual customer experience, companies are securing decisive competitive advantages today.

A managed cloud offers you the agility and scalability you need to meet this challenge. We design it according to your requirements and take care of migration, operation and ongoing optimization. For this we use a broad portfolio of public and private cloud solutions.

Icon Public Cloud

Solution for usage-based billing and scale-out scenarios
As much as you need and exactly when you need it, the Public Cloud provides you with fast resource capacities, services and more. The cloud infrastructure is shared with other customers. Billing is based on use (pay-per-use).

More about Public Cloud

Technology
PlusServer offers you Public Cloud products based on AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud or VMware vCloud. Elasticity, scalability and flexibility are the main focus.

Icon Private Cloud

Tailor-made cloud platform for individual requirements
Secured performance, reliable security and planable costs: these are all included in the Private Cloud. You will receive a dedicated cloud infrastructure whose resources you can freely allocate. The best choice for sensitive data and high compliance requirements.

More about Private Cloud

Technology
Your Private Cloud will store your data in a PlusServer data centre in your region. This will allow you to benefit from the lowest latencies to your own servers or other resources at PlusServer. You may use either VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V or OpenStack as the basic technology.

Icon Hybrid Cloud

Cloud solution with the best of all worlds
The Hybrid Cloud offers the best of all worlds with a mixture of stability, compliance, scalability and flexibility. A Hybrid Cloud solution is ideal for handling seasonal peaks and provides the best infrastructure for each workload.

More about Hybrid Cloud

Technology
PlusServer develops hybrid setups with Private or Public Cloud resources. For example, different VMware products or dedicated resources (servers) can be used. Because all resources are integrated into the same networks, they can interact seamlessly.

Icon Multi-Cloud

Combine different cloud infrastructures
If cloud computing takes place at different providers, this is referred to as a multi-cloud solution. In contrast to the hybrid cloud, orchestration is much more complex due to decentralization, so that the design requires even deeper cloud expertise.

More about Multi-Cloud

Technology
The technological approach of the Multi-Cloud is similar to that of the Hybrid Cloud. They take advantage of different cloud technologies to create a multi-dimensional setup.
