Why the MTF Business cloud is the optimal solution for kmu 

Real Private Cloud in Swiss Data Centers

The most important difference between Microsoft Azure and the MTF Business Cloud is the cloud delivery model. Microsoft Azure relies on the public cloud model, in which various resources such as applications (Software-as-a-Service, SaaS), complete computing platforms (Platform-as-a-Service, Paas) or IT infrastructure such as storage or servers (Infrastructure-as-a-Service) are made available to numerous customers simultaneously. In the MTF Business Cloud, on the other hand, the same delivery models are available in a private cloud environment that is operated in MTF's own Swiss data centers. This environment offers each customer their own virtual, completely isolated data center in which all functions are available only for them (e.g. their own firewall, VPN routers, isolated networks with security, backup system, storage disks and much more).

  • Highly secure private cloud with its own, isolated area per customer
  • Resources allocated per customer for optimal flexibility and performance
  • Data storage in Switzerland for maximum discretion and security
  • Mixed forms with hybrid cloud and public cloud also possible


Cloud infrastructure and managed cloud services from a single source

Microsoft Azure only offers the cloud infrastructure, i.e. the technical tools (e.g. cloud backup), but monitoring and responsibility lies with the customer or third party providers. In addition to the cloud infrastructure, MTF also offers managed cloud services with consulting, conception, implementation and operation as a complete solution from a single source.

  • Single Point of Contact for Cloud Infrastructure and Comprehensive Managed Cloud Services
  • Comprehensive proactive monitoring with intervention before damage can occur
  • Backup responsibility, monitoring and restore by our specialists
  • Customer-friendly, uninterrupted maintenance of the systems


Guaranteed high availability and maximum security

Azure does not provide high availability for virtual machines across multiple data centers (georedundancy). With the MTF Business Cloud, high availability (99.95%) for virtual machines including synchronous data mirroring across multiple georedundant data centers is included as standard.

  • High availability of 99.95% always included
  • Synchronous data mirroring across multiple georedundant data centers
  • Certified Data Centers according to ISO IEC 27001, DSGVO-compliant, Finma-compliant, and much more
