Cloud offers, as you may already know, some advantages in general, because it makes "virtual" the relationship between software components and servers that physically host them. By making these two elements independent of each other, they cancel the risks of malfunctioning on the physical servers where each company traditionally holds its core business applications (software for production, management systems, shared folders, etc.).
To handle the different peaks of use by those who absorb them (i.e. web applications and services) all virtual resources can be expanded and modified smoothly and without heavy costs, precisely because they are hosted within very large data centers that continuously redistribute resources within them according to their needs.
A company can access to virtual processing capacity at lower costs than buying or renting entire servers. This means for you a more efficient use of IT resources, upgrade delegated to professionals, lower operating costs (maintenance, upgrading) and flexibility...
OWL Solutions, to serve its customers and host the platform that enables the running of their applications, uses a Virtual Private Cloud, a separate portion of a much larger infrastructure (Public Cloud), to which only OWL staff can access. In fact, it is a virtual Data Center within a larger Data Center, with which dials through secure network configurations but also from which it protects itself through firewalls (also virtual):
OWL solutions operates in 2 highly technical data centers in Zurich, connected to each other. So to speak, the datacenter that hosts us is also used by the second Swiss bank!
Every component is virtual and it increases its reliability considerably. Not only servers are virtualized (so CPU, RAM and disks processing power) but also the networking components: routers, firewalls, VPNs, and load balancers. With this configuration you can create also very complex, Enterprise solutions, completely independent of physical hardware and with instant reliability and scalability.
Infrasctucture distribuited within 2 datacenters, connected by optic fiber; high perimeter security (see video above); daily backup procedures; systems and codes updated constantly, to ensure maximum applications integrity and security; great care in platform development to prevent unwanted access, privacy and security with mobile apps.
The location in Swiss territory guarantees maximum data security, thanks to technical agreements and legal restrictions based on data processing laws in force in Switzerland. These features give you high data protection.
It consists of multiple redundant Virtual Machines, to configure high availability and every solution able to ensure business continuity (SW availability is uninterrupted)
Our infrastructure complies with the directives:
Our VPC provides support for Linux, Windows (including cloud licenses), BSDs and other operating systems, as well as basic software infrastructures like databases, Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), content management systems (Wordpress, Drupal, etc.), e-commerce and collaboration suite (eg, Microsoft Sharepoint).
