On 7 August, 2015 the cloud infrastructure provider Safe Swiss Cloud AG headquartered in Thalwil merged with Basel-based Nexos AG under the Safe Swiss Cloud umbrella. The entire team, along with the cloud infrastructure and managed services provided by the Basel IT firm, which also operates the Swiss encloud service, will be integrated into Safe Swiss Cloud.
Customers of Safe Swiss Cloud and Nexos will now be able to enjoy an extended range of cloud services as well as additional managed-service expertise. The merger means a total of 35 staff and creates a trusted, 100% Swiss cloud computing alternative for enterprise customers with requirements for enhanced privacy, compliance and security.
Nexos has extensive experience in cloud technology, managed services, IT outsourcing and IT security. Thanks to additional know-how from Nexos, Safe Swiss Cloud will be further expanding its managed services offers geared towards enterprise cloud customers.
“With this merger Safe Swiss Cloud now offers enterprise customers enhanced 7×24 support and services to run their hybrid IT environments based on the Virtual Data Center product,” explains Prodosh Banerjee, CEO of Safe Swiss Cloud.
“The Nexos team’s years of experience in customer services as well as in operating their own cloud will complement the existing Safe Swiss Cloud team perfectly, and will enable customers to access a one-stop-shop cloud solution,” says Thomas Spinnler, CEO of Nexos.
Nexos was established in 1993 and provides solutions, consultancy and services in IT infrastructure, IT security and automation for large and medium-sized companies throughout Switzerland. The company operates its own cloud infrastructure with encloud and has a top-notch team of specialists.
