Solutions for cloud service providers

hero background

We see Cloud service providers, infrastructure providers, and enterprise IT outsourcing providers being challenged by:

  • complex infrastructure as their core business and intense market competition
  • no time or manpower available for additional added value services
  • customers demanding more and more „carefree packages“ on top of the Infrastructure-as-a-Service
  • customers requesting Service Level Agreements (SLAs) and 24×7 support not only for the infrastructure but also for their running applications
  • customers needing a lot of help around Kubernetes and cloud service providers not able to provide professional services themselves

VSHN can bridge these gaps with DevOps-Support, 24×7 Application Operations, and different tools for customers‘ DevOps teams as Software-as-a-Service on the cloud service providers‘ own infrastructure:

Application Operations

VSHN helps online businesses to onboard to Kubernetes and Cloud and supports them with 24×7 Application Operations (VSHN 24×7 AppOps).

  • DevOps and DevSecOps engineering
  • Continuous Integration and deployment pipelines (CI/CD)
  • Containerizing, packaging, Kubernetes configuration & secrets management
  • Cloud Architecture Engineering
  • Application hosting platforms
  • Observability: monitoring, metrics, alerts, logs
  • Disaster recovery: backup and BCM
  • Day 2 operations: maintenance and security operations engineering
  • Services management: external (cloud) backend services like databases
  • 24×7 support for the pipeline and customers‘ custom applications

Cloud Kubernetes Support

While primarily focused on supporting AppOps, our team of Kubernetes experts can help with any onboarding, customization, Kubernetes Operator development, etc

  • APPUiO Managed Kubernetes: observability, backup, configuration & secrets management, maintenance, and external services management for our partners‘ Kubernetes Services

Red Hat OpenShift

Especially for regulated (Financial, Insurance, Medical, Pharma, etc) or large Enterprises and Governments the Red Hat OpenShift flavor of Kubernetes might be a good match. As a Red Hat Premier CCSP Partner, we can provide know-how, any Red Hat Subscriptions and 24×7 managed services on your infrastructure – under the APPUiO brand (co-marketing) or white-labeled as the partner’s solution:

Software as a Service

We provide a selection of Tools for DevOps teams that can be deployed on our partners‘ infrastructure (public cloud, VPC, private, etc) and offered as SaaS in our partners‘ marketplace:

  • Keycloak SSO, for example, exposes a customer’s enterprise ActiveDirectory securely to Oauth2 web applications, as a GDPR-compliant alternative to Okta/Auth0/ADFS
