fair prices, competent support, fast performance
M. Widmer,

I run a small publishing and printing company. With SecureRack, I outsourced my file and ERP servers into the cloud and gained space for my core business machines, so I could improve productivity and revenue.
I appreciate the... More fair prices, the good and competent support as well as the fast performance of servers and connection. Furthermore, all data remain in Switzerland which makes me capable of printing sensitive documents from financial institutes that underlay Swiss data protection law. Less
A few issues
Francoise Bencke,

The platform is great. However, there is an issue with my cdn and my website and after 48 hours it still has not been resolved. I am aware that I have a standard support package but this should be part of the package as it is... More from their end. One other issue which I was not aware when I decided to go with them is that they are using a late version of PHP. Not great for speed. You have to be on the next suppôt level, to be upgraded at a cost of £100 support for at least 6 months. Not happy right now. Less

After completeing the changeover of all our processes onto a securerack VM, in less than 6 months we received an email from SR informing us that we have a couple of months to move to a new service because the service will be ... More discontinued. Not to mention the outages we experienced - which are never explained!
Here is the email:
Dear Sir or Madam

Great job!! Why did they take our business if they knew they will be closing down the service? We had to re-pay the app developers and DB admins to move everything to google cloud - NOT CHEAP FOR A SMALL BUSINESS!
