Digitalisation and data sovereignty in the German cloud

Do you need flexible IT resources for your digital projects? Simply obtain them from the cloud now. Freely and according to your needs. We handle the entire infrastructure, leaving you to concentrate on your core business. Of course, you only pay for the services you use – computing, storage, network and security resources – and thus keep costs under control.

Your data is always secure and GDPR-compliant in German data centres. Furthermore, you have the choice of relying entirely on open source technology with the open source cloud pluscloud open. With the GAIA-X compatible cloud, you are not tied to a specific technology or provider and can maintain digital sovereignty. We will be happy to advise you on your optimal cloud solution.

What are the advantages of the pluscloud?

Compare for yourself the options the pluscloud offers you in comparison to similar cloud offers.

Free and independent scaling of resources

Instead of predefined VM sizes, you can have various resources (CPU cores, pGPU instances, RAM, storage) in the pluscloud custom-scaled to meet your individual needs.

Billing based on use (pay-as-you-go)

In the pluscloud, resources are calculated on the basis of actual consumption. Alongside the free and independent scaling of resources, you only pay for what you really need at any given time.

Transparent pricing model

Many companies want to leverage the cloud to reduce their costs. We have deliberately kept the pluscloud price model simple to ensure there are no nasty surprises awaiting you at the end of the month.

No set-up fee

Billing based on your pluscloud usage includes the absence of any setup fees, which helps you channel your investments directly into operation.

More about Infrastructure as Code

Advanced network services such as firewalls or load balancers

Every pluscloud setup automatically comes with an Edge gateway providing a connection to the internet. It can also perform firewall and load-balancing functions.

High-speed network connection

The pluscloud locations are directly connected to our high-performance backbone with various uplink and peering options, thus ensuring the shortest latencies to German and international destinations.

Multiple storage performance classes

We offer two performance classes as storage space for the VMs: performance and high performance. This offers additional flexibility for every application.

Seamless integration of other products

As part of the plus.io platform, the pluscloud can be combined with many other products. Among other things, it is particularly suitable for hybrid setups, which are implemented via the hybrid connector.

Additionally, with pluscontainer you also get a Managed Kubernetes solution.

High-performance computing

For performance-hungry applications such as AI, machine learning or visualisation, you can expand your VMs in the pluscloud with pGPUs as required.
More about pGPUs

Fully integrated backup

With just a few clicks you can create backups for the VMs in the pluscloud. These backups are also billed using a pay-as-you-go model.

Multiple regions for geo-redundancy

Using the site-to-site connection of the respective Edge gateways you can easily establish a connection between the various locations in order to run an application across multiple regions.

Data protection according to GDPR

We offer the pluscloud at four locations (Hamburg 2x, Cologne and Düsseldorf) where your data is always GDPR-compatible and thus in line with the strictest compliance requirements.

Success Story pluscloud

The Hertha BSC game day living room

“At the moment, we have to play our games in front of empty stands. That’s why it’s all the more important for us to be close to the fans and to create new offers using our digital channels”, said Maurice Sonneveld, Head of Digital Media at Hertha BSC. “Our digital agency, brandung, and plusserver allowed us to quickly implement our own game day programme with lots of interactive formats and options with the ‘hertha030.live’ second screen offer.”

How can you offer thousands of fans at least a piece of the real home game experience despite coronavirus restrictions and games played behind closed doors? Live tickers, social media and apps have been used in football for a few years now. But that alone wasn’t enough for the traditional Hertha BSC club. They wanted to create a special place for the fans to come together and experience a sense of community: their own virtual living room. Videos, interviews, music, analyses and information from the stadium commentators at hertha030.live allow fans to get in the mood for the upcoming game and then follow it via live commentary.

“What the club needed was simple: enough performance to allow every fan to have a digital football experience”, said plusserver Account Manager, Claudio Paefgen. A pluscloud solution made up of three virtual machines ensures just the right level of performance. plusserver provided this at short notice, set it up and pre-installed the required applications.

brandung Managing Director, Niels Struckmeyer, is also pleased with the collaboration: “For us as an agency, it is an enormous relief to not have to handle the setup and operation of web infrastructures all by ourselves. With the pluscloud, we can be sure that plusserver takes care of the availability of all systems at all times, and also supports us in optimising our costs and performance levels.”
