Cloud services


Cloud consulting

Since 2010, we've helped companies design, build, migrate and operate applications in cloud environments. We are a team of dedicated and certified specialists not tied to any individual public cloud providers. Thus we are able to select the best environment for each situation - even private cloud infrastructure or hybrid solutions.

We support small and medium-sized companies as well as corporations and are experienced in applications of various complexity. We always work very closely with the respective customers and take into account individual business strategies as well as organizational and legal aspects. In addition to a strong technical expertise, our specialists also have many years of experience with cloud projects and their course and complexity.


We have been supporting clients in public cloud environments such as Amazon Web Services or Microsoft Azure as well as private and hybrid environments for over 10 years. This made us experience developments as well as advantages and disadvantages of the respective platforms early on. As specialists, we know all the technical, operational and legal requirements that you need to fulfill in your cloud project. We are happy to assist and guide you through your individual project phases.


We are thoroughbred technicians. Our aim is to create stable and technically excellent solutions that really add value. That's why we not only design solutions, we also implement them. Regardless of whether applications need to be migrated, developed from scratch or adapted: we take care of the technical implementation.

Cloud operations

We have a dedicated operations team taking care of more than 100 web applications in full responsibility - in their own data center, or at a cloud provider. We are not tied to any providers and, dependent on the situation, choose the most suitable environment for our deployments. We always focus on safety and fault tolerance. We know and understand our craft and ensure that your applications are always available.

Project phases

Project schedule

There are no standard solutions for cloud projects, there are no standard solutions as the needs and requirements of each company vary. Therefore we usually follow these steps:

  1. Requirements analysis: Together with you, we have a look at the motivation that makes you want to work with a cloud provider. Also we check your existing IT infrastructure and process landscape.
  2. Choosing a cloud solution: We show you the strengths and weaknesses of every cloud solution and identify the appropriate target architecture and solution for you.
  3. Migration Planning and Implementation: We find the best way to migrate your applications and make sure that the functionality is fully preserved. We create a roadmap and ensure a professional and efficient migration.
  4. Operation and Optimization: We test the functionality of the migrated applications and make sure that they continue to run error-free in the future. We take over operational management tasks as part of your in-house teams. During and after migrations, applications are adapted to the environment in order to take advantage and save costs.
