Within that broad range, Fundaments offers everything for a balanced, scalable cloud environment. This way you can be sure that also your organisation will benefit optimally from the possibilities that the cloud offers.

Permanent access to a customised cloud environment

The combination of business activities, location and sector make every organisation unique. This makes it difficult to determine the ideal cloud environment to quickly and purposefully develop applications and services. At the same time you do want to maintain control of the management and investment. Flexibility also plays a major role. Not all applications are business-critical and have to run within a private cloud. In other cases, public or hybrid cloud variants are more appealing. Regardless of your choice, you want to guarantee the performance and security. Fundaments advises and always provides you with the right cloud environment.

This varies from one private cloud at your own location (on-premises) and/or in our Dutch datacentres, to one public environment within our Fundaments infrastructure. Regardless of your choice, our specialists always give you customised advice on the best cloud choice.

Backup and disaster recovery

Standing still is not an option. Not for you and not for your customers. That is why Fundaments offers services like backup and disaster recovery. With our backup service Fundaments ensures that there is always a copy of all virtual servers at a different data centre location. So you won’t have to worry about the loss of data.

In case of disaster recovery, it’s even possible to mirror a production site, so that in the event of a production site failure, the secondary (or backup) location can be continued. Thanks to the smart software, it’s easier to switch between different locations. So you and your customers won’t stand still in case of calamities.

Storage

Cloud storage is storing data in a location other than your own. The benefits of cloud storage:

  • You only pay for the storage space that you actually use.
  • You don’t have to purchase physical equipment, so top quality storage and backup service without major investments.
  • Storage, maintenance, backup, replication of data and other matters are the responsibility of the service provider.

You can choose from different types of cloud storage:

  • Fast Storage
  • Regular Storage
  • Basic Storage
  • Archive Storage

Connections

Without the right connections you won’t get into the cloud. After all, it’s the connectivity that ensures that your data ends up in the right place. Fundaments manages its own network that is cleverly divided over various certified data centres in the Netherlands. In addition to links to the internet, Fundaments offers (private line) links via local network market places such as NDIX, GN-IX, FR-IX, R-IX ZOD-IX and EFX.

Without reliable network connectivity, a server is inaccessible. That is why we think it’s very important that these compounds are of the best quality. To achieve this we deploy Enterprise classified brands for hardware and ensure sufficient bandwidth and redundancy in our connections.

Trusting a partner
"Sometimes specific knowledge is imperative and it isn’t always profitable to acquire this in-house. It’s great to be able to trust a partner who takes that worry away, who’s familiar with the subject and doesn’t immediately send an invoice for every little thing. This partner will have an ongoing conversation with you: what is it you need, how can we tackle this and find a solution? That’s what Fundaments does."
Richard Hagen of the Rolf group
Multiple physical locations
"If the customer wants to have their data stored in several physical locations in view of DR, this is possible. But whether it’s a customised option or well-planned standard options, the customer doesn’t have to worry about a thing. That’s the beauty of the new ways of BU and DR"
Michel Erkens and Alexander van Bruchem of Onguard
Good solution with less costs
“When you look at the connectivity costs, meaning the private connections, as a part of migrating to the cloud, where you no longer need your own hardware or maintenance, your insurance policy is reduced, the company’s energy expenditure goes down and other expenses become smaller, you will see that this is really a good solution.”

It’s essential to us to find a partner who takes security seriously. That’s why we’ve chosen Fundaments. Security is a very natural element of our collaboration.”
