Unitt breaks the boundaries between Public and Private Cloud and focuses on continuous deployment

Thanks to Unitt’s innovations, Enterprise Hosting services are now always provided on the right type of Cloud, yet with the same rock-solid guarantees and user-friendliness. In addition, continuous deployment allows for reduced risks and a faster time to market. Unitt customers, such as Zeeman, Uitgeverij VAN IN or Kleertjes.com, and ourselves therefore write the same success story.

Unitt is one of the few Advanced Consulting Partners of Amazon Web Services (AWS) in the Benelux and has built a strong track record in both Public and Private Cloud. Since the very beginning, Unitt has been following the emergence of Public Cloud services like Amazon and Azure with great interest. Only recently have Public Cloud vendors become mature and earned their spurs. Therefore, this is definitely the best time for Unitt to market its total solution package.

“For a long time, Public Cloud has been promoting the idea that deployment is only a matter of a few clicks. In actual practice, it seems however that a strong deployment strategy is necessary to make a real success out of it. And that is precisely where Unitt represents added value„ Hans Reinhart, Managing Director of Unitt Netherlands

In the summer of 2014, Unitt acquired AWS specialist GiMiScale and integrated it into Unitt. GiMiScale has extra tools that greatly facilitate the management of Public Clouds and provide better integration of the product on the existing platforms. In addition, Unitt has designed strong Service Level Agreements (SLAs) that offer more than the standard contracts used by Public Cloud vendors like Amazon and Azure.

“We witnessed a spectacular growth in both the Public and the Private Clouds. Partly thanks to the expertise that we have gained through the acquisition of GiMiScale, we notice that customers start coming to us when they are looking for a solution that is fully integrated in the Public Cloud. Thanks to our partnership with Amazon, we are able to offer a high quality product„ Benjamin Jacobs, CEO of Unitt

For each project, the code of the application that runs in the Cloud is analysed. This was already the case with the Private Cloud, but is has become more important with the Public Cloud. Our DevOps engineers thus tweak and optimise the code in consultation with the customer. This results in a huge performance boost.

“Unitt provides a complete package whereby, as Cloud Architects, we offer both Public and Private managed Cloud hosting services. The choice for a Public or Private cloud solution is based on the project’s needs. So, Unitt has no preference for one solution over the other. However, what is paramount is that Unitt always goes for the most adequate platform„ Benjamin Jacobs, CEO of Unitt Belgium

Unitt focuses more and more on supporting customers who use continuous deployment. This is a concept whereby (web) applications can publish new releases on a regular basis, e.g. every day. This way, it is possible to constantly improve the software, without running the risk that something goes wrong or that users have to wait for major releases.

“We see that an increasing number of companies take a step towards the Public and the Private Cloud. A few years ago, companies were still reluctant to move their business to the cloud for “security reasons”, but such companies have now become exceptions„ Hans Reinhart, Managing Director of Unitt Netherlands
