Managed services – expertise and relief for your IT department

  • OS management for Linux and Windows

  • Application and database management

  • Managed services from experienced hosting experts

Careful planning by our experts, redundant system components and 24/7 monitoring allows us to ensure that your operating system and hardware are stable and always available to you.

Working together as partners is key for ensuring success. We consider “Managed Services” to be the sensible division of work between your and our IT services.  Modern IT landscapes are more complex than ever before. Experience shows that only certain parts of IT can be sensibly outsourced, such as firewall services for your network. With this in mind,

“Managed Services” therefore does not mean outsourcing your IT services in their entirety. Rather, it is the proactive communication and prudent exchange of information between all involved parties.
