How the hand-over works

Handing over operations of your server infrastructure follows simple process:

  1. We review your infrastructure and services
    Using remote access we get to know your existing setup
  2. We discuss your requirements
    What are current challenges, planned changes, and the expectations for the availability and performance of your application?
  3. We agree to a monthly budget
    Medium-sized projects often order 2-6 days per month. Maintenance packages start at €1500 per month.
  4. We take over operations
    We monitor and maintain all systems and services. You can focus on development.
