Cloud services or cloud computing is nothing new for us at Bahnhof. We have been dealing with distributed services and virtual hosting long before anyone started calling them cloud services. The principle has always been the same, cloud computing is just yet another term.
One aspect missing from discussions regarding cloud services is how the cloud is actually built, and from what. No matter how you put it, a "computer cloud" still consist of hard drives, processors, cooling systems and network access points. Even though this hardware may be present at several different physical locations, it still boils down to being regular non-magical computer hardware in a data centre. No magic involved.
The availability of a service always depend on the hardware, the physical location and the network latency to said location. We have unparalleled experience in building secure data centres, and our cloud services are distributed over our two facilities in Stockholm.
Pionen: the nuclear bunker capable of withstanding a hydrogen bomb, and Thule: the newly built low-latency facility right in the center of the business quarters of Stockholm city.
The hardware that provides our cloud services is not only completely redundant, it is also locked away many meters underground, behind blast doors and bulletproof glass. There are no backdoors, neither virtual nor physical.
In conclusion: With Bahnhof, you will get the best of both worlds. You will get a distributed service that works everywhere in the world, connected to northern Europe's fastest carrier network (BCN - Bahnhof Carrier Network) and running on secured hardware tended to 24/7 by experienced personel.
