A private cloud, set up by Swissmakers on your own infrastructure, offers you numerous advantages:
What is Nextcloud?
Nextcloud is the leading Open source platform for the secure management of data and documents. The platform offers a Wide range of functionsthat enable companies and private individuals to manage their data securely, conveniently and effectively. We have been relying on Nextcloud for several years and can therefore, with a great deal of experience, work together with our customers to develop the best possible solution for your data management build up.
A Correct and secure deployment should not be neglected. We therefore recommend installing the Nextcloud server on Rocky Linux 9 with a hardened firewall and a clean SELinux implementation. In addition to the high-performance PHP-FPM, a local Redis cache should also be installed to get the maximum performance out of your cloud.
Data protection and the cloud

The use of a public cloud poses major challenges for companies, and private clouds on external infrastructure also have data protection hurdles. Currently, a on-prem private cloud the best solution to comply with the provisions of the Swiss Data Protection Act (DPA) and other data protection laws such as the GDPR. This is the only way for companies to retain complete control over their data and implement requirements specifically in accordance with the DPA.
