Excluded from this SLA is advice regarding third-party products in case they are not directly related to the services we provide (Nextcloud, ownCloud, Server OS and Software). Please note that Cloud Admin offers are not suitable in any case and for every application area or user number, and despite high-quality components the technical power resources are not scalable and expandable at will. Please contact us with questions and problems so that we can find an individual solution together with you.



Account type: private or business:

As our packages are not divided into private and business, your account status (private or business) is assigned according to the SLA you booked. Your account is assigned exclusively according to the SLA you book, i.e. IRRESPECTIVE of your personal data (private/business), which you fill in at customer details. These data are irrelevant for the type of your account. Your account type (i.e. private or business) only depends on the SLA you book. Our SLA 1 and SLA 2 are for private customers, and thus designed for private use in terms of server performance, ... Our Company/Business SLA3 can be used both by companies and private customers, basically in order to get a business contract with us, but also to get cloud setup and services on business servers with better performance and fixed ressources. Another Business SLA advantage is the short, max. 1h ( 24/7 ) reaction time for requests and issues. Of course, as a company you can also book a Private SLA ( Test service, ...). But, please, keep in mind the details and the range of our Private/Premium SLAs compared to our Company/Business SLA, especially the lack of Business Support and entitlement to company contracts, as well as we do not establish business hosting settings. In addition, support with problems may be restricted, if the usual number of users for private use is exceeded, which is limited to 20 users at OwnCube. User numbers beyond 20 are considered as company/business use in terms of cloud and performance. If you have booked a private usage account (private SLA), you are only allowed to offer content on your domain/cloud for private and family purposes. Commercial websites and clouds that host company data/files or not exclusively for private and family purposes, require a Business / Company Account (Business SLA)
