Use cases

Hybrid & compliant solution​

Dr. Dienst & Partner previously operated its IT on-premises. As part of the digitalization process, the company wanted to modernize its IT and outsource operational responsibility to plusserver. The focus was on increased reliability, performance and flexibility. In addition, the strict compliance requirements according to GDPR and professional law (WPO/StBerG) had to be met. After extensive consultation, the decision was made to go with a hybrid cloud consisting of pluscloud VMware and a private cloud for own hardware in a housing model (colocation) in the plusserver data centers. This combination enabled the auditing and tax consulting firm to achieve reliability, performance and flexibility while maintaining compliance.
Anwendungsfälle IT_Migration
Anwendungsfälle Saklierbares Wachstum

Scaling 75 percent user growth​

DEKRA Safety Web is a portal for legally compliant online instructions for employees. It was initially developed and hosted entirely in-house by DEKRA Media. As the number of users increased (75 percent in 2020 alone), the need grew for a solution that would remain stable and perform well, even when many users were accessing it simultaneously. A scalable, high-performance cloud infrastructure was needed. In addition to GDPR compliance, ISO 27001 was a requirement. At the same time, there was a desire for operational support to reduce the burden on the company’s own team. With pluscloud VMware and the plusserver service, DEKRA can continue to grow in the future.

Disaster Recovery with pluscloud VMware​

With the cloud-based DR solution in pluscloud VMware, companies and public clients can perform recoveries between different pluscloud VMware locations or between an on-premises setup and pluscloud VMware. In the event of a data theft, outage, natural disaster or other catastrophic event, the pluscloud VMware recovery scenario maintains business operations. This allows organizations to remain operational and ensure business continuity in the event of a potential disaster.

DRaaS on pluscloud VMware

The pluscloud VMware disaster recovery solution is powered by VMware Cloud Director Availability (VCDA). It provides you with unified onboarding, migration and disaster recovery services in or between multi-tenant VMware clouds.

pluscloud VMware is the first VMware Sovereign Cloud with this DRaaS solution in Germany.
RGB implementation


The DRaaS solution is available on an on demand basis and can be purchased per virtual machine. The Recovery Point Objective (RPO) is six hours. It describes the maximum allowable data loss and defines the maximum age of data in a backup that an organization can reasonably use in a disaster recovery situation. The RPO therefore defines the minimum number of backup cycles required.

With DRaaS on pluscloud VMware, two different disaster recovery scenarios can be implemented:
