The cloud in your neighbourhood
With a total of ten PlusServer data centres - seven of which are in Germany - we enable you to use cloud resources near you. This is what distinguishes our Regional Cloud from our competitors, whose data location is often abroad or completely unknown.
With the Regional Cloud, you have the choice between the economic Business Cloud in which you rent resources on a shared cloud platform, or a Managed Private Cloud. This provides you with a dedicated cloud environment for maximum performance and compliance.
Whichever product you choose, you will benefit from the lowest latencies in your own IT infrastructure, all located close by. If you choose Managed Hosting or a Colocation solution, we will gladly operate it all from the same data centre for you. Our team will be happy to advise you on the best solution for you from our Managed Hosting and Cloud product ranges.
Our Business Cloud is perfect for the success of your online business model. With Business Cloud, we offer a professional, redundant cloud infrastructure based on VMware vCloud or Microsoft Azure Stack, on which you can operate new platforms efficiently and flexibly expand existing platforms.
Business Cloud offers a multitude of possibilities: It can act as an autarkic cloud (Public Cloud), but can also be used as a “load overflow”. In combination with your existing virtual/physical environment, you also receive a Hybrid Cloud. We offer this high degree of flexibility at a reasonable price and with a minimal contract term.
We offer the Business Cloud on the basis of the following platforms:
- VMware vCloud
- Microsoft Azure Stack

With our Private Cloud solutions, we provide you with a cloud tailored to your requirements, whereby everything can be specifically customised for you – from the hardware used (server and storage, for example) to the network design.
We will be more than happy to set up your highly available private cloud for you, and to operate it for you as a managed cloud solution.
Because PlusServer takes care of managing the underlying infrastructure (e.g. resource allocation, monitoring, patch management), the customer can concentrate on their business.
If you would like to leverage the advantages of a flexible cloud solution, but are bound to your own capsulated, dedicated hardware due to compliance regulations, then a private cloud is the perfect solution for you. Maximum flexibility with maximum compliance.
We offer the Private Cloud on the basis of the following platforms:
- Customised to individual requirements
- Integration in existing structures possible
- Cost savings, thanks to consolidation
- Scalability of cluster nodes
- Flexibility when it comes to resource allocation
- Powerful administration interface
- Support for/operation of infrastructure from/by PlusServer
- Management of VMs by PlusServer possible option
- Best performance provided by branded hardware
- Customised contract terms
Public vs. Private: which cloud for which needs
A Shared or Public Cloud usually offers the most cost-effective way to use flexible cloud resources. As the name suggests, several customers share the same infrastructure. So several so-called virtual machines can be located on a physical server. The customer adds or removes one or more of these virtual machines on the Public Cloud to or from their infrastructure, depending on their needs. The term “public” may be slightly misleading: there is no way that third parties can access the data saved on the Public Cloud. As part of our Regional Cloud products, we also offer Public Cloud resources with the Business Cloud.
With a Private Cloud, you can enjoy the full performance of dedicated resources. This means that, aside from the virtual machines you use, no other VMs booked by other customers will be operated on the same hardware. Having a Private Cloud also allows for a higher level of security, as individual security settings can be put in place. When it comes to PlusServer’s Private Cloud solutions, you can also have a blend of Managed Hosting and the cloud, whereby dedicated hardware will be used in combination with virtualisation solutions. Virtualisation is typically a feature of the cloud.
