Open source software for the public sector
Univention develops open-source software and supports IT modernization in the public sector, in education, and in companies with its applications. Due to its own extensive infrastructure, which had grown over the years, Univention’s growth recently seemed to be in jeopardy, as there was an increasing lack of in-depth know-how and time to deal intensively with the necessary topics. For this reason, the company was looking for an open-source cloud that offered more scalability, greater reliability, and SCS compatibility. With pluscloud open, Univention can relieve its own internal IT and concentrate on further growth.

“We used to do a lot of things ourselves. But lately, we have not been able to deepen the expertise we need to scale. And that meant that any downtime would be very expensive. So we looked for an open source cloud that could give us data sovereignty and SCS compatibility, and we found it in pluscloud open.”
