Platform und DevOps as one Service

Clusterfish is Platform as a Service in combination with DevOps as a Service. When we run your application on a dedicated cluster provided by us, the batteries are included. You and your team can concentrate fully on your core business - we take care of the stable operation.

We are a team of senior developers and DevOps with more than 20 years of experience in software development and server administration. We plan, build and operate self-healing server clusters for you. We use the most modern technology, on which your applications run high-performance and highly available. We take care of the entire installation, migration, deployment and operation of the cluster. In addition, we are always at your and your team's side with advice and support.

High Performance

With a maximum fail-safe load balancing and an individually tailored caching layer, we ensure that your application performs reliably and can withstand peak loads.

The capacity of the cluster can be expanded at any time if required.

High Availability

Your cluster will be operated by us in certiefied German data centers, powered by renewable energy. It can be distributed across locations in Germany or Europe.

We maximize availability through replication, service discovery, and routing across all service levels of the stack.

Modern and Flexible

We use state-of-the-art technology for your cluster. For example, we use modern virtualization and containerization tools.

Benefit from our platform for versioning your software and from our fully automated deployment processes.

You are looking for ...

... a platform for the operation of your internet applications, which ensures that your offer is

  • always available
  • and reacts quickly under load

... Support, for example for

  • the migration of your existing infrastructure
  • Optimizing your application for your new cluster platform
  • the introduction or conversion of CI/CD processes

... personal contacts,

  • that you know
  • which guarantee short ways to a qualified support
  • who integrate into your team

We offer you ...

... the right solutions - flexible and field-tested.

  • Set-up and operation of dedicated "private cloud" server-clusters in a German data center - on request with distributed locations within Germany, Europe or worldwide.
  • Conception and implementation of all necessary measures for the highly available and high-performance operation of your services.
  • Support for migration, customization and optimization of your applications for operation in a cluster.

The key: Significantly lower costs than with a cloud IaaS or PaaS provider at comparable server performance.


We are flexible in building the cluster stack. You benefit directly from our already implemented configurations. However, we also implement every individual requirement for you.

Here is an excerpt from the standard services offered by us ...

  • Java, Python, Ruby, Perl, NodeJS, (Apache & Nginx)-PHP/FPM
  • Nginx, Apache, Varnish, HAProxy
  • High Performance Wordpress/Magento/Drupal Hosting
  • Gitlab, Gitlab-CI, Gitlab Docker Registry
  • KVM, Docker, Docker Swarm, Kubernetes
  • Graylog
  • Grafana
  • Sentry
  • Matomo
  • Bitwarden
  • Elasticstack
  • RDBMS Cluster (MariaDB, PostgreSQL)
  • NoSQL Database Cluster (MongoDB, Elasticsearch, Redis)
  • Replicated, distributed File-systems
  • VPN and encrypted, internal Networks
  • Mailserver-Stack for inbound- und outbound E-mail
  • Security- and Audit-Tools

We provide the developers with one or more Git repositories with the help of a Gitlab server operated by us - including our own Docker Registry. The clusters are automatically deployed (Gitlab-CI) after a merge of separated staging and production branches. A rollback, and thus the functional restoration of the site by your team, is possible very quickly at any time.

By default, you have access to a complete staging environment. Here you can test new releases before the go-live with the same server configuration as in the production system or have them approved by the customer.

Other environments (e.g. for development or testing) can be provided on request.

The topics of security and data protection are very important to us. And not just since the DSGVO. We therefore configure our systems accordingly and also secure the software stack in accordance with Best Practices. We install operating system security updates immediately and the servers are protected against attacks and DDoS attacks by a firewall.

If it is necessary to temporarily expand the server capacity, for example for a campaign, we can connect any number of virtual machines at short notice. This is possible for individual services, parts of the stack or the entire stack.

You can also easily set up a Content Delivery Network (CDN) in front of your infrastructure.

Your Web services are equipped with TLS certificates by default. We install and monitor any number of TLS certificates at no additional cost.

We monitor all servers with professional monitoring software, react promptly to alarms and test the website for worldwide availability.

We support your development team in an advisory capacity when it comes to the optimal software architecture and optimizing the performance of your applications on the cluster.

We develop individual software for you that is operated quickly and efficiently on your server structure.

For our customers we have already implemented single sign-ons, customer loyalty platforms, complex lotteries (e.g. photo competition with Wordpress integration) or web push services that can be used by a massive number of users in parallel.
