Managed IaaS, operated in data centers in Germany.
Our Managed Cloud was build for flexibility, uptime and scalability. Whether you need five or five hundred of virtual machines, or whether you plan your IT infrastructure to run in a Private Cloud, Public Cloud or Hybrid Cloud environment, i.e. combined with dedicated hardware, with an Open Cloud you absolutely can. As an entirely open technology product ScaleUp Public Cloud gives you full OpenStack API-access, so that you can integrate current workloads and processes. During the entire implementation process we will advice you and offer support, ensuring a fast and smooth transition towards production level of your Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) project. ScaleUp Cloud uses latest, highly redundant cloud technology based on OpenStack and Dell Enterprise hardware, operated and maintained to 100 percent in our German data centers.

You receive your own virtual data center environment with your own IP network area, access to OpenStack Horizon Dashboard and with complete API authorization. You may provision any virtual machines (VM) and extend them with block based / object based storage (Ceph, Swift), load balancing, etc.
Setup of a Private Cloud requires extensive financial and time investments, in addition to deep technical knowledge in that specific area. With a Managed Cloud (or Hosted Private Cloud), ScaleUp takes care of planning, building and ongoing operations management of a cloud environment on your behalf.
OpenStack is a dynamically built and highly adaptable cloud management framework. You can orchestrate virtual machines (VM), containers (e.g. Docker), Bare-metal servers as well as dedicated IT infrastructure within a single network. The OpenStack platform’s open source code assures wide transparency and flexibility, in means of integration, being independent of single vendors and suppliers. There is no reason to fear vendor lock-in or expensive license fees for using the software.
Furthermore, OpenStack is the world’s favored free Cloud Management Platform and the leading open source project for Cloud Computing. OpenStack has been established in 2010 as a joint open source project by NASA and Rackspace. Today, more than 50 Percent of the Fortune Top 100 trust and rely on OpenStack based technology. Over 81,000 members and more than 670 supporting enterprises work within the OpenStack community.
