Let your ideas fly!

Make your digital transformation agile and reliable: with Flying Circus operations and hosting.

Let us help you master the challenges of digitalization!

If this resonates with you, Flying Circus is just what you need:

You have a custom web application based on open source components. You would like to outsource operations to someone who can meet your high standards of availability and reliability.

Does that sound like you?

Let's talk!

Simple, agile and secure: 3 good reasons why we should work together!

Because we are perfectly prepared and positioned

Rely on a well-oiled team with over 20 years of experience in the agile development and stable operations of web applications. We can ensure short release cycles, low deployment effort and seamless monitoring.

Because perfect operations are a matter of attitude

No matter how suitable a technical solution may seem – ultimately, the success of any project comes down to the people involved. That’s why we always communicate openly and strive to build an effective and pragmatic collaboration.

Because our DevOps approach makes it easier for everyone

We primarily understand DevOps as a cooperation of development and operations – in other words, your developers and our administrators working hand in hand. This leads to maximum flexibility and therefore short response times, and your products benefit from our combined expertise.

Scalable infrastructure

Choose exactly the components you need. We can adapt the scope of the virtual machines we provide and the associated resources to your project's needs at any time.

Managed platform

Our open source components are configured in a way that facilitates your operations and development. We manage and administer the Linux platform, which can be fully customized to your requirements. You can use your subscription for multiple projects and as many customers as you like.

Ideal support level

Whether you prefer to host your applications yourself or leave everything to us – our support can be adapted to your needs. Feel free to extend the scope as you wish. But no matter which package you choose, you can always expect a cooperative partnership and a forward-looking approach.
