Managed PaaS.

Focus on developing your application.
Don’t worry about infrastructure management.

Managed Platform as a Service (PaaS), is a platform that Cloudical sets up, rolls out and operates for you in any cloud environment. You have the application and can focus on managing it.

Either bring your own infrastructure and let us host it on your preferred IaaS platform (while you are contractor to the cloud provider) or together with you we choose the perfect fitting infrastructure.

From analyzing your current environment to managing the platform: The whole lifecycle of Managed PaaS takes about one month. Compared to a similar setup without Managed PaaS that is about six times faster!

No unneccessary complexity.  No lack of experts.  No extra costs.
