VMware technologies in our Public and Private Cloud
- Public Cloud
- VMware vCloud Director based on vSphere for our Business Cloud
Also available as Hybrid Cloud setup
Business Cloud is the public cloud alternative of PlusServer. The hypervisor from VMware is also used. However, the VMware vCloud Director is used for orchestration. The management of the cloud infrastructure is thereby even more reliable.
- Private Cloud
- VMware vSphere with vCenter extension for our Private Cloud solutions
Also available as Hybrid Cloud setup
Each Private Cloud customer gains access to a shared vCenter that is administered by PlusServer. If higher compliance is required, we will gladly provide you with a dedicated vCenter.

Reasons for VMware
The cloud cannot be exploited with hyperscalers alone. You will be given access to your own resources when you register a VMware product and, with the Private Cloud, even your own dedicated resources. Thus, you can choose between different management levels.
No matter which solution you choose, our VMware certified system engineers (VMware Certified Professionals) provide 24/7 physical hardware support, ensuring maximum availability.
PlusServer is one of the largest VMware solution providers in the European market and has been successfully using VMware products for more than ten years. Based on this expertise, our VMware Certified Professionals will help you design, deploy, and operate your environment.
- Presales and Architecture
System design and consulting in the pre-sales phase is particularly important to us. Therefore these services are included in PlusServer. In this way, you end up with the perfect solution for your needs.
All VMware solutions are always available with the highest premium features supported by VMware. This allows us to always provide you with an advantageous service level agreement.
Would you like to purchase the solution from PlusServer, but you have the appropriate know-how in the company and don’t want to lose your independence? No problem, because we can offer every management and operating model
Whether it's data protection or access security for your IT solution, we always take your security requirements into account, even in cloud environments, so you always have the feeling of having a single-tenant environment with dedicated network, computer functions, and storage hardware.
With PlusServer you always get the licenses you need to establish a successful private cloud. Through the Business Cloud, we even provide you with the enterprise functions of the VMware programme.
If you already have a dedicated environment as a managed hosting platform at PlusServer and would like to integrate your VMware solution, we would be happy to do this for you. We integrate both environments into the same Ethernet segments, so you can benefit from seamless integration of your IT resources.
