Important information:
  • Due to the continuing high demand for resources of the bwCloud, our currently available resources have unfortunately reached the limits of all bwCloud locations. Therefore no new users will be activated for the bwCloud at the moment.

    But we have massively upgraded our hardware resources and are currently working on the commissioning of the new hardware. With the new environment there will be enough space for several thousand virtual machines - enough to welcome both current and new users.

    We will provide information both via the website and via e-mail as soon as the new hardware is online,. Nevertheless, we apologize for any inconvenience caused until then.
