Agencies Success Story:
The big move to the private cloud
As an agency partner, the UDG United Digital Group faces the challenge of overcoming the ever-increasing number of touchpoints for their customers in a holistic, brand-consistent, innovative and budget-efficient manner. The list of reference customers reads like a ‘who's who’ of the German economy.
The increasing demands placed on digital experiences by customers means that the underlying infrastructure also has to grow. The cloud has flexible resources in the form of virtual machines (VMs). Companies like to use managed cloud solutions to simultaneously relieve their own IT staff.
- Migration of 180 customer systems to a managed private cloud
- Firewall, storage and backup as managed services
- Monitoring and debugging systems using PlusServer
- Shared administration rights give UDG a high degree of flexibility
Moving to PlusServer should free us from infrastructure issues, so we can focus on our core competency – digital strategies for our clients. Ulrich Bartholmoes, Chief Information Officer, UDG United Digital Group

What is your agency portfolio?
We take over the typical tasks of a professional e-commerce agency, such as consulting, conception, design, digitisation, implementation and project management. Our activities are focused on quality, passion and measurable success.
Why do you work together with PlusServer?
The requirements of our customers are constantly increasing. At the same time, we want to guarantee our customers the secure and high-performance operation of their digital e-commerce platforms. PlusServer supports us to achieve this in an optimal way via flexible scalability and reliable availability.
What do you see as the biggest advantage in this?
We have the support of a long-term, reliable partner that works round the clock to make sure that we don’t have to worry about availability or any enhancements or updates that are necessary. This leaves us free to concentrate on our areas of expertise.
Excellent service and proactive consultation
Your dedicated contact in sales and technical support knows your infrastructure and knows exactly what to do - in the event of disruptions or the expansion of your infrastructure. We also advise you proactively, so that your customers can use technical innovations as early on as possible for their marketing needs.
For Typo 3 or your preferred CMS
PlusServer offers the best conditions for a perfect internet presence and targeted marketing with web server optimisation for this free open source Content Management System (CMS). Or simply run any CMS on our highly available and flexible hosting setups.
With this tool you can create outstanding, fast and unique professional homepages. Typo3 is particularly popular in German-speaking countries and lots of web agencies use this CMS for development.
Homepages for small to medium-sized enterprises can be created with an exceptional price-performance ratio. Minor changes are simply made by the client themselves later on.
Your web project with WordPress
We are happy to create hosting solutions for blogs and other websites with the WordPress CMS, so that you can fully utilise the potential of this tool. While this CMS used to primarily be of interest to blogs, it has now been developed so that it can be used as a content management system for large web sites. Even online shops can now be created and operated with WordPress on your hosting solution.
Other advantages of WordPress hosting at PlusServer include the free availability of the software, as well as its continuous and reliable further development by an international community of hundreds of voluntary developers. Thousands of plugins and themes are at your disposal to make any web project a reality. Finally, a managed hosting setup tailored to your needs ensures the high availability of your web project.
We work closely with you to decide on the various components, for example, web and database servers, load balancers and firewalls, to create the optimal solution based on price and performance. This can, of course, be scaled at any time and will grow dynamically with you.
