Private Cloud

The provision of a own Private Cloud infrastructure for the elaboration of sensitive business data on clearly defined terrain guarantees legal security with complete and protected access for utilization and administration from any place in the world, by PC, notebook, tablet or cellular phone.

Functional Characteristics

  • Iaas
    • Provision and administration of physical Linux Server systems for a development, integration, test or production environment from any chosen place (PC and notebook), via VPN (KVM and DVD), complete and secured.
    • Provision and administration of virtual Linux Server systems for a development, integration, test or production environment, from any chosen place (PC and notebook), via VPN (KVM and DVD), complete and secured.
    • Provision and administration of any chosen software under Linux (Java EE Application Server, Service Bus, Databases, Revision Control Systems, etc.), from any chosen place (PC and notebook),via VPN (SSH, X11, HTTP, HTTPS), complete and secured.
  • Paas
    • Administration and use of any runtime environment under Linux (Java EE application server, service bus, databases, revision control systems, etc.), from any location (PC, notebook, tablet and mobile phone), via Internet/VPN (HTTP, HTTPS), comprehensive and secured
  • SaaS
    • Use and administration of e-mail and cooperation (calendar, contacts, documents) from any location (PC, notebook, tablet and mobile phone), via Internet (HTTPS), comprehensive and secured
    • Use and administration of network attached storage from any location (PC, notebook, tablet and mobile phone), via Internet/VPN (WebDAV/SMB), comprehensive and secured

Nonfunctional Features

  • Reliability
    • Manual replicability of all virtual host systems
    • Separation of the network segments for user data and administration
  • Availability
    • Disaster prevention by automated periodic incremental backups of all data 1/24h, in territorially safe distance
    • Production of previous configurations by automated versioning and hierarchic compression (daily, weekly, monthly...) of all virtual server images
  • Elasticity
    • Needs-based distribution of performance and capacity (CPU, RAM, HDD)
  • Expandability
    • horizontal and vertical scalability of all physical server systems
  • Investment protection
    • Manufacturing independence through exclusive application of open standards
    • Resource-saving use of storage space through automatic de-duplication and Compression
  • Confidentiality
    • Storage and processing of all data exclusively on dedicated territory, under dedicated law
