Modern Infrastructure as a Service hosted in Germany based on OpenStack.

Flexible Resources

Get exactly what you need. The NETWAYS Cloud is perfect to create an IT infrastructure from scratch or extend an existing one. Unlike to other providers, creating multiple VPNs just works with a fingertip. Do it anytime. Your MyEngineer is at your side whenever you need help.

As much as you wish. Anytime.

Open Standards

Open interfaces guarantee flexible interoperability. Use the OpenStack API to launch instances, generate images, assign instance and image metadata, create storage containers and objects, and other actions in your OpenStack cloud. Configuration can be done at any time using the REST API, the OpenStack CLI, or popular third-party tools such as HashiCorp’s Terraform.

S3 / Swift Object Storage

Cloud S3 / Swift Object Storage
As your business grows and your requirements change, you no longer need to estimate how much storage you will need in the future. With your NETWAYS Cloud Object Storage you are flexible and always well positioned!

How does it work?

Your data is bundled with customizable metadata tags and a unique identifier to form objects. These objects are stored in a flat address space. There is no limit to the number of objects stored, making it much easier to scale out. S3 is the protocol developed by Amazon, Swift is the counterpart by OpenStack. It is possible to access your NETWAYS Cloud Storage with both protocols.

And why does it matter?

Put your static web content in your Object Storage and load assets from there while your web application stays stateless.
Unlimited space for all your ideas, data and tools, while you only pay what you use.

Cost Explorer

Cloud Cost Explorer
The NETWAYS Cloud Cost Explorer enables maximum transparency and predictable pricing. It shows you the current billing data for all cloud resources and services live for the current month. You can also view the expected costs if consumption remains as it is.

What do I get from this?

CPUs, Memory, Volumes, Images, Snapshots etc.: The prices are calculated hourly and billed on a monthly basis. In the Cost Explorer you can see the current state of your expenses in a tabular overview, know exactly which resources you have used for how long and what it costs you. In addition with the forecast function you have a rock solid basis for your thought-through budget and resources planning.

VPN as a Service

Cloud VPN as a Service
Establish VPNs (Virtual Private Networks) between the NETWAYS Cloud and other parts of your IT infrastructure. Secure the traffic with encrypted connections. Make information and services remotely accessible while personal data remains anonymous. Connect your site to the cloud wherever you are. Safe and easy.

Is it worth having a VPN?

Absolutely. The technology helps you to connect to the NETWAYS Cloud from anywhere in the world. While your data and services stay safe in our data centers located in Nuremberg, Germany, and restricted for the public, you can easily access it from wherever you want.


Cloud Backup and Snapshots
Backing up and restoring important data is one of the most important issues for clean IT operations. Overwriting a file, not saving an important file or installing the wrong update – such situations happen every day. Surely you want to be prepared! Companies treat backups in their own environments with the utmost care. However, data protection is not really a creative activity.

Go for more creativity and stay safe:

Dedicate yourself to the really interesting and challenging tasks in your IT and hand over the responsibility for a reliable backup to us. With our automated system in place, organisational backups can be performed on a pre-determined schedule, mainly once a day, which minimizes the ongoing attention required from your own IT teams, leaving resource free to tackle other projects.
Better have a backup! Automatically and without stress.

SDN & Floating IPs

Cloud SDN & Floating IPs
Create your own virtual data center. Software Defined Networking (SDN) decouples the control plane from the data forwarding component (data plane). With this higher virtual network layer over the physical one you get a very dynamic and flexible infrastructure.

What benefits do I have from it?

SDN allows for a more efficient usage and automation of networking services: Create and separate networks quickly and adapt your IT to new business needs. Dynamically adjust traffic flow with Floating IPs. Loadbalancing, firewalling, VPN on your fingertips.

Native API

Cloud API
With an API (Application Programming Interface), applications that are independent of each other can work together and exchange data. The NETWAYS Cloud uses OpenStack APIs for all it’s components: Compute (VMs), Storage (S3, volumes, images) and Network (VPNaaS, SDN, firewall, etc.). This enables automation of all processes and facilitates integration into build pipelines, configuration management tools or even application layers.

Infrastructure as Code has never been easier!

The OpenStack APIs of the NETWAYS Cloud can be combined with numerous DevOps tools. Keep using what you know and what works for you! Use your favourite tools to start server instances, create images, setup networking and network components, and perform many other actions. Automate as much as possible for faster and more productive workflows.

Local SSDs

When a centralised storage is not enough for high performance applications like databases or highly frequented websites, local SSDs are the perfect match for fast I/O and are available in every zone in the NETWAYS Cloud.

Boost your performance by simply choosing local SSDs in our OpenStack Backend and scale your apps to any desired level.

Security Groups

Secure your OpenStack environment in the NETWAYS Cloud OpenStack Backend with just a few clicks.
Security groups are sets of IP filter rules that are applied to all project instances, which define networking access to the instance.

Group rules are project specific – project members can edit the default rules for their group and add new rule sets.
Security Groups enable you to group multiple access rules in a single object. This makes it easy to grant access to a group of applications and servers.

Load Balancer

Use Load Balancers in the NETWAYS Cloud OpenStack Backend with just a few easy steps.
How does this work?

Multiple application servers can be published using a single DNS name and IP.
This makes scaling easy and your application is available at any time.
You can even spread you appservers over different zones for high availability.


Create and extend your volumes in the NETWAYS Cloud in the OpenStack backend.
Choose between block devices on our multi-zoned ceph storage for maximum availabilty or local ssds for maximum performance.
Make snapshots at any time or scheduled by your own MyEngineer.
You can choose the perfect volume sizes for your projects and we take care of the rest.

Pre-Built Images

We provide images for all popular Operating Systems. Kickstarting your infrastructure has never been easier.
Choose your flavor of Linux or Windows (bring your own license). Of course you can use whatever image you want.

Simply upload it to the NETWAYS Cloud.
