All data is stored in Safe Swiss Cloud’s own data centers in Switzerland and we guaranty our customers full control over their data.

Reliability & Performance


All of Safe Swiss Cloud’s technology infrastructure uses 100% SSD storage – this allows us to guarantee performance for many customers simultaneously. This has allowed us to turn around the question customer’s ask from “What is the maximum you can give us?” to Safe Swiss Cloud asking customers “How much do you need?”.

At the same time, reliability is the foundation which every business needs for their IT. Safe Swiss Cloud’s infrastructure is based on redundancy in its systems – here are a few examples:

  • Redundant SSD storage: we use clustered SSD storage which makes sure all data is stored redundantly multiple times.
  • Redundant servers: a hardware defect will lead to a virtual machines (servers) getting restarted on another server.
  • Redundant networking: switches and Internet connections are redundant.
  • Redundant backups: backups are stored in two data centres.
  • Redundant power supply: every server has redundant power supplies and is connected to battery powered uninterruptable power supplies (UPS). In case of a disaster, in house diesel generators can provide enough power to keep the data centre running for weeks.

Competitive & Predictable Pricing


Safe Swiss Cloud is very competitive on costs, while providing excellent reliability, performance and privacy:

  • For many common workloads, e.g. running a Content Management System or CRM, Safe Swiss Cloud is cheaper than most clouds
  • For workloads with heavy to very heavy IO, Safe Swiss Cloud is orders of magnitude cheaper than the hyperscalers
  • Predictable costs: Safe Swiss Cloud makes sure that customers have a good indication of where their actual infrastructure costs will be. Our customers want no surprises and we deliver.

Multiple Cloud technologies for every use case


Every cloud technology has its advantages and disadvantages which determine their suitability for certain use cases. Safe Swiss Cloud offers a range of cloud technology options to satisfy a wide range of use cases.

Enterprise Cloud: This is based on VMware and is ideal for typical enterprise applications like ERP, CRM, banking and healthcare applications. A dual data centre option is available.

Kubernetes Cloud: Based on Openshift technology, this infrastructure is popular with developers creating next generation, cloud native applications.

Open Cloud: Based on industry standard Openstack technology, this product is perfect when standardised open source interfaces are required.

Object Storage: This allows the storage of large volumes of data on the cheapest available online storage. Access is encrypted via https and uses the industry standard S3 protocol.

Privacy and Compliance


Safe Swiss Cloud offers a contractual commitment to customers that the customer owns their own data and are free to move their data in and out of Safe Swiss Cloud anytime. It commits to not processing customer data for any purpose other than what the customer intends. 

All USA based cloud providers are subject to the 2018 Cloud Act, which allows various USA agencies to access foreign customer data by serving orders for access to this data on the USA cloud providers. In fact the USA agencies can even “gag” the cloud providers, preventing them from notifying their customers that such access has taken place. Most USA cloud providers are also unable to give a clear commitment that customer data is not processed outside the data center selected by the customer.

Safe Swiss Cloud gives customers clear and explicit commitments that their data is held in its own data centers and only processed in them with no outside access to customer data.
