Smart technology

The backbone of our innovative IaaS & PaaS architecture

gridscale’s technology stands for

Smart features that save time

Maximum automation

Intuitive user experience

Through the successful implementation of numerous cloud hosting projects over many years, our experts at gridscale have gained an in-depth understanding of the requirements and challenges customers face when working with Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offerings. As we integrated these insights into our own DNA, today we are one of the fastest companies when in comes to development and quality, offering the most cutting-edge cloud technology to our customers.

Cutting-edge algorithms

To deliver cutting-edge technology, we are specialized in building our architecture with deep-learning algorithms. By collating countless data, constantly comparing targets and actuals, we can detect anomalies and prevent failures that would otherwise occur.

Henrik Hasenkamp on gridscale’s technology approach:

We translate the high complexity in a data center (resulting from locations, power supply, cooling, storage systems, computing capacities, network connection and so on) into a user-friendly user interface, on the basis of which a user can comfortably and intuitively configure and start any cloud infrastructure. In our architecture, we not only operate distributed and highly secure data storage, but also deal with the extraordinarily complex software operation of databases and load balancers, key value stores and container virtualization. All this takes place in a fully automated operation with an uncompromising promise: 100 percent availability.

This promise cannot be kept with conventional approaches to reactive IT operations. Reactive operation means that a failure must first occur and then be rectified as quickly as possible. In order to keep our promise, we must therefore be able to take preventive action.

we have specialised in interpreting certain signals in the IT landscape and intervening preventively in the event of an imminent disturbance… we evaluate a large number of hardware and software sensors using central algorithms in real time.

In recent years we have specialised in interpreting certain signals in the IT landscape and intervening preventively in the event of an imminent disturbance. In this approach, we evaluate a large number of hardware and software sensors using central algorithms in real time. We mainly use data that is already generated during operation (ambient temperatures, voltage levels, latency times, power consumption, even the behavior of software components) and that allows us to identify anomalies at an early stage.

focusing our technology on data-based decisions and continuously improving our self-learning algorithms

By consistently focusing our technology on data-based decisions and continuously improving our self-learning algorithms, we can now correctly interpret more than nine out of ten events in an above-average complex cloud infrastructure.
In addition to the higher availability of our services, there are further advantages for us as operators. For example, we were able to install what is known as dynamic capacity management, which helps us to use our resources much more efficiently. CPU nodes are shut down when no load is expected and are restarted on time when a dynamic workload of one or more customers is expected. Software updates are now installed almost autonomously. A possibly necessary restart of individual components is planned and executed algorithmically. Thanks to the possibility of transferring the infrastructure used by our customers to other CPU nodes during operation, such an update is no longer even noticeable for the customer and thus becomes a routine activity.”

Managing and accessing gridscale

RESTful API

gridscale’s cloud infrastructure and PaaS are accessible through our RESTful API. You are therefor free of vendor lock-ins that would otherwise restrict the usage of your Infrastructure.

Intuitive Interface

We simplified what you can often find: hundreds of dialog boxes and options. Instead, we let the magic happen in the background. gridscale’s panel cuts out all complexities and lets you take action intuitively with just a few clicks. For small infrastructure setups we have developed our easy-to-use drag and drop interface; for large setups or individual requirements our expert panel caters for your needs.
