As an IT system house with its own data center, we support business customers throughout Germany with advice, planning and implementation in all aspects of IT infrastructure and offer maximum security, availability and flexibility.

Gartner analysts predict that by 2025, a whopping 85% of companies will shift some or all of their traditional data centers to specialist service providers (Da-vid Cappuccio/Henrique Cecci, September 2020). As specialists in all aspects of cloud services, managed services, colocation, hosting and cyber security, we are ideally equipped for this.

We work independently of large, proprietary providers and global cloud providers. We rely on the Linux open source system, which offers full transparency and is supported by a strong global community. Our customers receive exactly the services they need and want.

With the help of cloud computing, significant savings in energy consumption and CO2 emissions can be achieved: Many individual servers running in continuous operation are replaced by far fewer cloud servers - with much higher efficiency and significant energy savings.

Our aim is to continuously expand this offering and thus make our contribution to greater energy efficiency and CO2 reduction.
