As all our cloud services are exclusively and only hosted in data centers in Zurich or Attinghausen, we contractually guarantee data location in Switzerland.
As we are a Swiss company, your data is protected by the strong Swiss Federal Electronic Data Privacy Law.
Independent of the service, every 6 hours, we take full (automated) backups of all customer data and systems. This are SnapShots on the Storage block-level.
As both data centers are used for productive workload, data backups are replicated across to the opposite location (every 6h). This assures that all customer data is safe with us, even in case of an unforeseen disaster.
By default, our backup data retention policy is set to 7 days. Customers who need longer retention periods have the option to create their own, more granular backups at the OS/Application level.
The entire infrastructure is monitored around the clock 24/7. Any malfunctions are automatically and immediately recognized. A technician will respond to each malfunction and take the appropriate action.

In the case of a Data center Building loss (e.g. Earthquake, Fire, Flood) and a determination of unrecoverability, all affected Cloud Services will be brought online within the opposite Data center. In such a case the following Recovery Objectives applies: RPO max. 6 hours and RTO max. 4 hours. As a matter of course, such a scenario means high priority on bringing all Services Online again, as soon as possible.
Recovery Point Objective (RPO) – max. 6 hours
Recovery Time Objective (RTO) – max. 4 hours
