Server Systems

The constant rapid advance in information technology is in conflict with stability and reliability. This discrepancy could become even stronger in the future. Solid system architectures and server infrastructures remain the foundation for successfully mastering these challenges. Our employees have many years of experience in conception, construction and operation. They face new challenges every day and they are always learning.

We are happy to share this knowledge in consulting projects:


In addition to the initial system architecture, we carry out the installation and configuration of Linux server systems for our customers. We are also happy to take over the ongoing operation. We prefer to work with the following Linux distributions:

  • CentOS
  • Debian
  • Ubuntu
  • RedHat

A special FreeBSD distribution has proven to be particularly suitable for use with firewall and proxy services:

  • pfSense
Microsoft Windows

Of course, our experts are also familiar with the Windows product family: our focus here is system design, installation, configuration, commissioning and updating (patching) of Windows server systems. Our customers use Windows servers for a variety of purposes. The most common are Domain Controllers (Active Directory), File Servers, Terminal Servers or Microsoft Exchange Mail Servers.

Red Hat Open Shift

We operate our own cloud services, also as Platform as a Service (PaaS): in addition to this current product, we also offer consulting services and support for migration to a cloud platform, and support in setting up private or hybrid clouds. Would you like to host your applications or parts thereof with an Austrian provider? Then we recommend our own cloud platform!

Docker / Kubernetes

The container virtualization software Docker is the cutting-edge technology for fast and efficient implementation of software development in live operation. This open-source software can make the software development process independent of platform and environment. This allows Docker to realize stand-alone, completely self-contained, yet high-performance integration tests, or the seamless transition of applications from the development to the production environment. The newly created application containers can be transferred directly to production without any new integration effort. Benefit from the experience of our experts at next layer.
