Please note:
  • [12.03.2018] Due to a planned maintenance of the bwCloud region Freiburg access via Dashboard will be interrupted on tuesday 13.03.2018. Instances running in freiburg will be gracefully shutdown prior to the maintenance. Running instances of other bwCloud regions are not affected, access to them will be possible (except via Dashboard). We apologise for the inconvenience and hope for your understanding. We'll inform you as soon as the maintenance is finished.
Important information for the bwCloud users:
  • Due to the high amount of users and the steady increase of the number of bwCloud registrations we are facing the situation of using up our available resources quite fast. Especially the situation of available IPv4 adresses is alarming: nearly every bwCloud region has only a few available adresses for further use left. We therefore kindly ask our bwCloud users to delete and remove no longer used instances to free (at least) some resources for the other users. Requests to create group projects have to be considered very carefully and might not be answered in a positive way for the next weeks and months. Please contact us via our ticketsystem if you plan to use the bwCloud with a group project.

    However, faults and disturbances may still occur within the next weeks for which we would like to apologize in advance. To avoid running out of resources in the future we are currently expanding our hardware infrastructure on a huge scale. Visiting our website for further informations might be worth a try!
