Business Layer

Bare Metal

Our Bare Metal Solution provides a secure environment in which you can run your specialized workloads on high-performance, bare-metal servers. With bare metal solutions, organizations can have complete control over the hardware and optimize the performance of their applications, which is particularly useful for applications that require high-performance computing, such as big data analytics.

Virtual Machines

With our Virtual Machines businesses can create isolated environments within a cloud infrastructure. They operate independently, providing flexibility, scalability, and resource efficiency. Virtual Machines emulate physical computers, delivering diverse applications and workloads seamlessly.

Platform Services

Our Platform Services offer tailored environments for application development, deployment, and management. Streamlining processes, these services provide a unified platform, fostering collaboration and efficiency throughout the development lifecycle.

Sustainable Computing

Our Sustainable Computing approach redefines efficiency with super high-density setups and harnessing the power of eco-friendly data center providers. This innovative approach prioritizes environmental responsibility, enabling high-performance computing with minimized ecological impact and optimal resource utilization.

Confidential Computing

Our Confidential Computing approach transforms cloud security by safeguarding data at rest, in transit and in use. With encrypted enclaves, we ensure sensitive information remains confidential even in shared environments. This paradigm shift sets a new standard for secure data processing in the cloud.

AI Cloud

Our secure and sovereign cloud environment designed for CPU and GPU-accelerated workloads. Built with the latest enterprise hardware and grounded in open-source technologies, our platform ensures direct access to GPU technologies, AI platforms, and Confidential Computing, safeguarding services against unauthorized access and meeting data privacy requirements.

Automation Layer

Compute

kvant enables seamless provision and management across general-purpose x86, mainframe s390x, and GPU compute instances. The adaptable kvant platform is future-proof and primed for innovation utilizing dual options for confidential and GPU instances.

Storage

High-speed NVMe storage, backup facilities, and snapshot capabilities form a scalable, secure solution to enhance operational efficiency. It includes three availability zones for robust backup strategies and an additional air-gapped location for superior data protection.

Network

Software Defined Networking (SDN) isolates each virtual data center, presenting a new cloud security standard. It expertly manages Internet traffic layers and ensures a high-performance persistence layer. Features include the full spectrum of IP addresses, and the ability to scale bandwidth up to 100 Gbps.

Security

Features like software-defined firewalls and security zones fortify your data and operations. With two options for Hardware Security Modules (HSMs), we add an extra encryption layer and key management, enhancing the protection of sensitive information in the cloud.

Connectivity

Exceptional connectivity, utilizing access to global network infrastructure ensuring high bandwidth and low latency, enhancing your cloud operations' speed and efficiency. Redundancy is built into our network design, safeguarding against potential disruptions, and maintaining uninterrupted access to your critical business resources.

Infrastructure as Code (IaC)

With IaC, infrastructure resources are defined, provisioned, and managed through code and scripts rather than manual processes. It enhances efficiency, reduces manual errors, and accelerates the delivery of infrastructure resources. This approach aligns with the principles of automation, scalability, and agility, enabling organizations to respond to the demands of today's technology landscape.

Infrastructure Layer

kvant Public Cloud

We partnered with Green, Switzerland's leading data center operator, and NorthC, a market leader in regional data centres and provider of colocation, connectivity and communication services. aving the data centers strategically located in the region of Zurich and Basel, we are fostering a high-performance platform that ensures efficiency, security, and innovation. Alternatively, we can set-up kvant in your very own data center.

kvant Private Cloud

You can set up the kvant Cloud Platform in your very own data centers. Setting up a private cloud in your own data center offers advantages including enhanced control, security, and compliance, making it ideal for sensitive data and regulatory requirements.

Enterprise-Grade Infrastructure

kvant has been designed to support mission-critical applications, offering horizontal and vertical scalability to manage diverse workloads on a cost-effective platform. By separating the compute and persistence layers, our infrastructure holds a commitment to density, modularity, and sustainability.
