We consult. We advise. We help.

Helping your servers and your IT staff with our expertise and experience.

Systems Architecture Peer Review

There were times, you could just connect your system to the Internet and be happy. These times are long gone. Todays systems and applications require additional security and redundancy, balancing and scaling. We help you find and configure the most important hardening settings for your application servers and review your systems architecture for performance and redundancy.

Consulting

Monitoring and Observability

Profit from our expertise (10+ years) in systems and application monitoring using the Open Source Software Nagios and Icinga 2. Get the know the differences between the different monitoring solutions and learn how to make use of Icinga 2's programmatic apply rules. Use graphing tools, such as Grafana, for capacity planning and visual monitoring tools (NagVis) to quickly identify a problem and save time in troubleshooting. Our Introduction to Icinga 2 workshop helps you jumpstart your new monitoring project.

Discover the world of Observability by collecting and analysing application logs using ELK (ElasticSearch Logstash Kibana). Combine your system and application logs at one place and create dashboards for performance or problem analysis.

Kubernetes, containers and automation

Kubernetes, containers, continuous deployments and automation. It all sounds good but there is a lot of complexity involved. With our experience in containerization and automation we are able to help you integrate a container infrastructure and improve deployment workflows using CI/CD.

Do you want to build your own Kubernetes infrastructure? Great, we can help you with that since we offer this as a service, too!

Problem analysis and troubleshooting

Is something in your infrastructure or application not working correctly anymore? Do you need help investigating what might be the cause? Something broken and unable to fix it? Do not despair. We have seen a lot of problems in all these years - and we have solved them all! An external view on a problem brings fresh ideas and alternative ways to find a fix.

Knowledge gathering and sharing

Acquiring knowledge is the part that takes up most of the engineering time. But what if you need to roll out a new application but your team has no resources to read through documentation and start learning from scratch? This is where we can help. We collect all information required for running this new application/server in a secure and stable way, document it and present our findings in a kickoff meeting. This helps your team to save a lot of time and is ready to run it from day one.
