Network from
cloud to edge.

Manage data securely and easily.

Running your own network is often complex and very resource-intensive due to the administrative effort involved – especially today when networks simply have to function or when low latencies and high bandwidths are required. That’s why German Edge Cloud provides you with a team of highly qualified network specialists who use their expert knowledge to resolve these challenges for you:

Your advantages at a glance:

  • Connection of your locations to our shared private cloud via VPN tunnel, dedicated leased line, or by connecting to an existing MPLS network. You can even get your Internet access through us!
  • Software-defined networking in our clouds – unlike other providers, with German Edge Cloud you determine in seconds which virtual network infrastructure is required.

  • On request, we will build your private cloud network, virtual or dedicated with individual service cutting.
  • Our quadruple redundant Internet gateways feature DDoS protection.
  • We connect multiple clouds together, either through VPN tunnels or through cloud connections at our sites.
 
 

Your advantages
at a glance (general):

At a glance

  •  

    Our cloud network is built on the same technology stack as the Internet and features less complexity, greater scalability, and higher availability than comparable networks.

  • With a virtual or dedicated network you are completely separated from all other customers – for more security and performance.

  • We build your own network on demand and tailored to your needs, whether virtual or dedicated.

  • Individual solutions are possible: We take on the challenge

 

Benefits for decision makers

  • Our cloud network is built on the same technology stack as the Internet and features less complexity, greater scalability, and higher availability than comparable networks.

  • We build your own network on demand and tailored to your needs, whether virtual or dedicated.

  • A data center network can be distributed across our three data centers and connected in a ring via dark fiber. Each connection can be actively used without having to keep resources available in case of failure.

  • With a virtual or dedicated network you are completely separated from all other customers – for more security and performance.

  • We work with you to solve connectivity problems that often prevent you from using the cloud!

 

Benefits for engineers

Our cloud network consists of a Layer 3 BGP fabric where the cloud servers are part of the network.

  •  

    No proprietary protocols like those from Cisco/Juniper; everything is based on Linux with BGP as the routing protocol

  • No network disruption due to known Layer 2 problems such as loops or broadcast storms

  • No protection protocols like Spanning Tree, Loop Detection, or Broadcast/Multicast Limits required

  • Integration of layer 2 technology is still possible via EVPN

  • Full monitoring through Prometheus-based data-driven monitoring – on every switch

  • Non-blocking 25/100 gigabit technology on every switch with our technology partner Mellanox
     

We can establish location connections via office firewalls or dedicated lines in your company.

 

  • Managed firewall at your location

  • Maximum performance through dedicated line

  •  

  • No more problems with VPN tunnels because both ends come from one source  

Managed Network or SDN? Depending on the cloud platform, you have full control through SDN – or we build your virtual or physical network for you.

 
 

Availability, security, and scalability: we’ve thought of everything

The availability, scalability, and security of a cloud are defined by the network architecture. The experts at German Edge Cloud have dealt with these three issues for you.

At German Edge Cloud, we speak the language of the Internet right down to our compute nodes: BGP is the routing protocol we use. Our network infrastructure is a modern IP fabric and thus guarantees short distances and maximum reliability.

You also benefit from a significantly reduced network latency thanks to the geographical proximity of the three certified data centers to the large Internet node DE-CIX in Frankfurt.

Your network runs – where you want it to.

Ideal for maximum flexibility and developer freedom.

Core data centers

Take advantage of our ISO 27001-certified Tier 3 data centers in Frankfurt, optimized for DLT, our own cloud park in Höchst, or the green Lefdal Mine in Norway.

Your connection to German Edge Cloud solutions with BSI security.

German cloud solutions

Your connection from our cloud solutions operated and hosted in Germany with BSI security.

Ideal if the route to the data center is too far for performance-relevant reasons.

ONCITE data centers

Here, German Edge Cloud offers the ideal, decentralized alternative: ONCITE is located directly at your various production sites, enabling you to set up your AI-supported real-time evaluation.

 
 

German Edge Cloud answers frequently
asked questions about networks.

What is a software-defined network?

A software-defined network offers the possibility to control and configure network configurations easily via web or API itself, or via software. With German Edge Cloud, this is done on a multi-tenant basis – for maximum implementation speed, as no coordination with the provider is necessary.

 

What connection does German Edge Cloud provide?

Each of our compute nodes is connected to redundant 2x 25 Gbit interfaces, which enables a maximum bandwidth of 50 Gbit/s per node.

Our clouds are connected to the Internet with 4x 10 Gbit/s with four redundant connections – DDoS protection included!

 

How do I connect my locations to the German Edge Cloud?

Whether via the Internet, your own VPN, or a dedicated line: Depending on the application, we will advise you individually on the best solution for your situation.

 

Can I connect the cloud solutions from German Edge Cloud with other clouds?

Yes! Thanks to our Frankfurt location, cloud connections are available to all major cloud providers. Alternatively, VPN technologies can also be used here. We would be happy to advise you here too.

 

Can I use IPv6 in the German Edge Cloud network?

German Edge Cloud offers also IPv6 for your cloud platforms.
