Infrastructure as a service with the VMware Cloud platform

VMware, the world's leading provider of cloud infrastructure and business mobility, accelerates the digital transformation of your enterprise through a software-defined approach. With VMware solutions, you can create a first-class user experience.

This is ensured by a holistic approach to mobility, a faster response to market opportunities through the Hybrid Cloud, and the strengthening of customer confidence through effective protection against cyber threats.

  • VMware vCloud Director based on vSphere for our Business Cloud

  • 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.

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.

  • Expertise
    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.
  • SLA

  • Security
    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.
  • Licensing
    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.
  • Integration
    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.
